Chaps

I'm giving serious thought to getting one of these for the lounge, to support (hopefully) a transporter.

However before I splash the cash, can anyone tell me from experience if there are things that a wifi pda with appropriate skin can do that the SB remote won't? or anything it does better?

cheers

Mark.

...look into an 8GB iTouch and the iPeng native app! I've gone through a Nokia 770 then a Logitech controller and the performance along with the touch screen usability on the itouch/iPeng combination is hard to beat.

Pro's
Touch Screen > iTouch
Battery life > iTouch
Extra charging cradles (which users have been asking for)> iTouch

Con's
No audio streaming from Squeeze Center... yet

I've also used an older NEC PDA running Pocket PC 2000, and a Sony PSP...

So far the only repsonse I've gotten about extra cradles is, "We'd like to have them available."

Wouldn't a seperate supplier be better than not being able to have them for your customer? I'ts the one thing about Logitech and the DUET that peeves me off.

Hi there,

Maybe you would like to check out my approach to remote controlling SqueezeBoxes with a PDA.

SlimControl is a PDA-based remote control for Logitech's Squeeze network.
