In order to have clearer image on the different between Zire 71 and Zire 72, and compare Zire 72 with the almost same price Sony CLIE PEG-TJ37, here is small comparison table I made:

Note: red color is better/notable.

When Sony CLIE PEG-TJ37 released, it beats Zire 71. But with the newly released Zire 72, seems Palm has make Zire competable with PEG-TJ37. If you want WiFi, PEG-TJ37 is for you, else Zire 72 is a good choice. It has fast CPU(read: speeeed!), shot bigger resolution photo and even video. Plus, MMC is always cheaper than memory stick at same storage capacity.

Hmm… wonder when I will have my first handheld… :???:
