Has anyone seen the new HP Jornada 420 handheld PC? I checked one out at a local retailer recently. It didn't seem to meet the old HP levels of fit, finish and quality. The plastic housing had flashing and the halves did not fit together as well as they could.

I'd like to hear impressions from others who have looked at this new product. It seems OK for a first generation device, but in my opinion, HP can do better. What do you think?

Yeah, looks neat, but doesnt have the old-time HP quality. We'll see.
