Anyone here have any experience with using PocketPC PDAs/Cell phones with Mac OS X?

I'm seriously thinking about buying a HP H5555 PocketPC (just because it's freaking awesome--has biometric security, 802.11b, and BT built in, with room left for GPS!) and I can develop my .NET mobile apps for it as well and also considering buying a PowerBook whenever they announce the updated versions. I want to be able to have it work wih my Windows XP workstation along with the PowerBook just fine. Can I do this. I've heard of third party tools, but what are they?

Anyone think I can also get a T68i and sync it with the PocketPC THEN sync the T68i with iSync. Is that a better solution?

Thanks in advance!

Replying to myself. :p

I found PocketMac (http://www.pocketmac.net/) for only $70. However, many people (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12564) think it's a rip off.

An upcoming software from Markspace called "The Missing Sync" for Pocket PC (http://www.markspace.com/pocketpcpreview.html) seems promising.

Apple's Virtual PC (http://www.apple.com/macosx/applications/virtualpc/) page says it can sync with Pocket PC, but it only works with Windows in Virtual PC, of course, instead of Mac OS X.

That's all I can find. Comments?

I was looking forward to seeing what people had to say on this one, since I'm <crossed fingers> about to resolve a long-running conflict with Verizon Wireless Chicago and New York </crossed fingers> after which I'll be back in wireless mode.
