First is that I would have liked a higher screen resolution but at least they made the screen bright enough, finally.
Second is the SD card plugs into the side of the Palm so it's way too easy to accidentially unplug it when you're gripping the Palm. My main concern is that one day I'll lose a card this way and while prices have fallen they're still not cheap. BTW, the m130 works just fine with cards over 32MB even though they give you the impression it won't.
Third I do not like the default Palm desktop but thankfully there are some excellent third-party alternatives.
The desktop is ok...
My biggest complaint, is still the cradle. Judging by all the reviews that have echoed that complaint, it's clear the cradle was not designed for this model. I still have a tough time putting it in and out of the cradle.
I'd go with the Sony now too - just because of the screen.
If money isn't an issues, I'd skip the palm and get an iPaq.

I usually prefer Best Buy to Circuit City for electronics, mostly because they don't have annoying salespeople. This time I stood around the PDA display at Circuit City (which featured "dead" displays, nothing worked), wandered around the computer area trying to get someone's attention, and finally walked over to a register in the music department and asked how one was supposed to buy something. That guy told me "I'm hourly, is it OK if I give the sales credit to one of my friends in that department that gets commissions?" I told him to forget that, I'd tried to get someone's attention for ten minutes without success... This episode reminded me why I never shop at CC, but I wasn't willing to part with an extra thirty bucks to go someplace else.
I'll post a review once I get up to speed on the Sony. Since I'm a PDA virgin, of necessity the review will be from a novice user perspective.
