I have a 120 and a eMate, but want to upgrade to a 2000, the 120 is a bit
limited. Compared to the eMate, the 120 is a bit slower, but not by that
     The handwriting recognition is accurate, but can be a bit slow at
times. One of the main problems aside from speed, is the 120 lacks a
backlight and you can go short of memory very quickly.
     The main advantage is size and weight; it fits comfortably in your
hand, and is not too heavy. Having had a 120 with OS1.3 and OS2.0 I would
recomend one with the 2.0 OS. You can transfer data easily between a
eMate and 120, and the handwriting is so much better between the 1.3 and
2.0 OS.
