The past days were pretty exciting since we have heard about a lot of new Pocket PC Phone Editions from O2, T-Mobile, i-mate, even Vodafone and others. While all of them are going to release the HTC Blue Angel soon (they call O2 Xda IIs/III, T-Mobile MDA III, VPA III, etc), T-Mobile and i-mate are going to launch the HTC Magician as well (T-Mobile MDA Compact/i-mate JAM) while O2 is going to release a so far unknown Pocket PC Phone Edition (O2 Xda IIi) and I wonder what's your choice yet?

Is it the HTC Himalaya (Xda II/MDA II) sized Blue Angel with W-LAN support and thumb-keyboard, is it the smaller and lighter - iPod like - Magician or might it be the O2 Xda IIi where we know nothing, except it comes with the fastest CPU, megapixel camera and Wi-Fi support.

Or is it even a completely different Pocket PC Phone Edition like the Motorola MPx or the HP ipaq H6300?

Hard to decide, I know but since most of us cannot buy all of them (and can not use all of them simultaneously), what's your choice?
When I've heard about the Blue Angel I thought "perfect". Than I tried the MPx and thought "even better". When I've heard first time about the Magician I thought "that's what I want" and now? Maybe it's the Xda IIs with its stronger CPU, megapixel camera and Wi-Fi - I don't know it anymore... :-( Have you already made your decision?
