I was looking for something on Expansys this morning in our affiliate store, and I noticed that the MWg Zinc II has undergone another price drop - it's now only $299 USD. If you watched my unboxing or review videos, you'll know that I found this device to be a solid, capable Pocket PC - nothing terribly revolutionary, and not a real power user device with only 64 MB of RAM, but capable enough for most people. I felt that the initial price of $749 USD was just too expensive though because it put the Zinc II in close competition with the HTC Touch devices. But at $299 USD? This device is in a class all it's own - I can't think of any device that performs better on a price/performance ratio. And unlike every new device that HTC is cranking out lately, the Zinc II actually has 3G that will work in Europe, Asia, and North America because it covers the 850/1900/2100 Mhz bands. This is definitely a device worth considering at this price.
