    Hi
    I travel and use my ipod touch for online marketing. (connect to VPS etc)

    I'm not sure if I should buy the new iPhone (no contract - $650) or a $500-650 OQO running windows XP.

    I need it to fit into my wallet (like iPod touch 4g) so I can do my tasks on the fly..

    Can u recommend which one I choose and why?

    Some things I'm thinking about

    Speed

    Size

    Other


    Thanx

    I would get a nice android tablet (not sure if there are small ones that would fit in your pocket, though)
    If not, then i would go with the Iphone 4.. i use my ipod touch to check on things all the time and it works great!

    Not sure exactly what you mean by connecting to your VPS and all of that, but I know Android has some more functionality where the iPhone might be lacking - simply due to all of the restrictions placed on the iPhone.

    If you already have an Apple product (iTouch) and it's doing the job well for you, then a transition into the iPhone would be very easy for you to handle and you'd be using all of the same apps (if any).

    However, as someone else already mentioned - something like the SamSung Galaxy Tab would be pretty cool. It's a smaller than average screen, only 7-inches and you can pretty much do anything on it as well. You can fit it into your pocket depending on pants but in any case it would likely be comfortable so you may need something else. Maybe it's worth checking out. You can pop a 3G SIM in there too to connect to wireless data (which is what you actually need).

    As for the OQO, have not heard of it but just saw some pictures and I hate slide out phones like that. Imagine navigating websites with them. Tapping the screen where you want to click is a much better option and for that reason I'd say an iPhone - but wait for more opinions.
