Wow, finally I can add my 2 cents....

I use TelCanto on my IPAQ. It works GREAT! Of course it's not free. But it
makes a great interface with no delays of any kind. The option to show
artwork is really cool.......

The one problem I have heard about using this method is that the Wi-Fi on
the
PDA sleeps and after you pick up the PDA and activate the screen, the wi-fi
takes 5 seconds or so to reactivate. Is this true? I would imagine if the
wi-fi was constantly on the battery would run down very fast.
