Well I have to agree that it is thicker; but compared to my Toshiba e755 with the extended battery, it is thinner, by a little bit.
As for length and width, it is in there with just about every PPC w/ exception to the latest iPaqs (19xx, 2xxx, and 4xxx series) but it has BOTH SD and CF slots so a fair comparison would be Toshiba's e805, e755 (or e740 based on size only) or the Dell Axim's.
This one has my interest - really what it needs to be a grand slam is integrated WiFi and VGA display!
