Suggestions for color PDA around $300?

So sorry for a question that is asked alot, but wanted to see if there were any suggestions on what color PDA to get for under or just barely over $300. I heard the Palm m130 has a smaller screen than the Handspring Visor Prism. But are there any other advantages/disadvantages? Others that I should consider?

I've read a few threads here, but thought I'd see if there's any new news, especially in regards to what I'm looking for. Sorry if this is bad protocol for posting.

You should be able to find the Sony Clie 610 or 710 or even 760 for around $300 ... if anyone still has them. With the introduction of the NR series, Sony has reduced the prices of the older models.

If nowhere else, you should be able to find them on eBay. The main differences between the 610, 710, and 760 are:

610 & 760 are on the new Palm OS 4.0. 710 has OS 3.5, but you can do a firmware upgrade to make the OS 4.0 (to make it identical to the 760).

710 & 760 have an mp3 player built in.

All 3 have front-lit color screens. Really pretty. Here's a pic of the Clie 760 (the 710 & the 610 look almost identical):

I second the Sony CLIE series. Best screen on any PDA. Palm software has many more free titles than Pocket PC.
