I've never had a stylus come dislodged on its own on the edge. My Clie N760C's would fall out on its own, but with the spring loaded catch, its locked in tight.
On the Audrey side, I've got a Ocean one, that I'm thinking about getting upgraded...(www.audreyupgrade.com). Is yours still the original, or have you done the upgrade?
Back on topic...The battery life is awesome. I'd have to say that it also depends on what you use it for. If you play MP3's using the MiniJam or Soundsgood, you'll run it down fairly quickly. If its just PDA functions...its very good.
I, btw, have had about 30 pdas in the past 3 years...some PPC's (iPaq 1910 & Dell Axim currently), and lots of HS's & Sony's. I just keep coming back to the Edge for the Palm OS reliability, and the HS expansion options. Its mainly a personal thing. The Edge just 'suits me', I guess.
I also have the benefit of having the Visor -> Edge Stowaway keyboard adapter...so I was able to pick up a regular Visor keyboard pretty cheaply.
I just got that t-device Q-pad thumbboard the other day, only b/c I wanted to get one before they quick selling them completely.
Re vera, potas bene.
