I have had several PDAs, and this is by far the best. I got it mainly for the built-in keyboard and high-res screen, but it is the total package. I sold my Dell Axim which was quite good to get the UX40 and I don't miss it at all.
Pros:
- Super compact
- Loaded with features
- Bluetooth built-in
- Great screen
- Keyboard is very convenient
- Multimedia
- Fast
- Super cool and well made
Cons:
- Battery life not great, but OK
- Kind of pricey
- Camera good only for low res pics
- Landscape screen only (not a big deal to me)
Buy it - you know you want it.

I've owned way too many PDAs, and have come to several conclusions:
1 Palm OS excells,
2. HP iPaqs are a disaster,and
3. SONY exceeded my expectations.
Unless you need Wi-Fi, it's not worth it.
This is by far the most feature filled unit that is on the market. It's size and features will address just about any need you may have.
Keyboard is comfortable, and bundled software is great to show off the features. You'll be hard pressed to get over the novelty of this wonderful machine. You won't be sorry.

I love it the first time I saw it, using the excelent services of Amazon.com I have it in my hands in couple of days.
I changed from a nice Hp 1945 Pocket PC to Sony UX-40, but I'm not sure if was a wise idea:
1. The screen is too small to have a comfortable sight
2. Keyboard is nice in size but I don't like the feeling of the keys.
3. It's not cheap, and the software provided is very limited, if you want to use the other software provided, you have to pay.
4. Quality of photos is low
5. You have to carry the cradle if you want to charge it in your car with the proper adapter.
Very nice looking device but maybe is oriented to a younger market (but the price is not oriented to it)
I will give it a couple of weeks, if not convinced, maybe my wife can give me back the Ipaq 1945
