Well, it depends on a couple things.

1) The sony is nice if you have other Sony products (for instance a PC or labtop). You can swap memory cards in and out of other Sony peripherals like cameras, or directly load files onto the PDA, by just pulling the memory card. And they're cheaper for more space. But, if you DON'T have a Sony card, this is a non-factor.
2) Do you want an MP3 player or fairly low-grade digital camera more. If you already have one of the two, then this might make your choice easier.

Based on personal preference, I'd take the Sony, only because I alreasy have two digicams in my apartment, and don't have an MP3 player.
