    The V37 is definitely not one of your feature-rich, multimedia-station type PDAs. Granted, it has MP3 and MPEG functionality, but that is to be expected in all of todayís Pocket PCs. However, that is not to say that it performs poorly. On the contrary, we found the V37 to be extremely fast and responsive in handling programs. Tasks that may elicit a pause from other Pocket PCs are preformed smoothly on the V37. Perhaps this is attributed to its processor, which clocks at a lightning 400MHz. Here are the official specs from Viewsonic-
