    They already have. That Accutracking has been around for a couple of years. MapQuest FindMe is another one... http://www.mapquestfindme.com/. Check out Telenav (http://www.mapquestfindme.com/) as well.

    Most wonít argue that including a satellite based GPS receiver can be done. Like Scott points out, itís in an iPaq. But the iPaq isnít subsidized by carriers, and therefore isnít subject to the same rules that a carrier may enforce on a smartphone manufacturer. The carriers have a big part in deciding what goes into these phones.
    The proper API's for the chip are not exposed. I've chatted with NetWizard and ShadowMite to get to them and ShadowMite confirms there's a GPS screen on the Treo, but it's come up empty. So umm, yeah there's probably a fair amount money to be made for developers on it, but without the APIs it's dead in the water.

    The carriers aren't against GPS, as noted Nextel (now Sprint) actually has it in a number of their phones.

    Here's a couple fo articles on the viability of WiFI as copatable or cpmpeting with BT and HDSPA

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/02/02/emedded_hsdpa/

    "Dell is very clear in its view that WiFi and cellular connectivity options are complimentary, and we are inclined to agree with this. Regardless of increasing Wi-Fi availability, coverage can never be as extensive as a cellular network - the technology simply wasn't designed with this in mind. Connecting to public access Wi-Fi networks is still also far from being a hassle free experience, especially if you don't have a subscription and need to purchase access on a session by session basis. In practical terms, therefore, a significant number of notebook users will, indeed already do, find the cellular option very useful."

    For BT vs. WoiFi see:

    Sounds lots like you knew this was a hoax right away. I think you got carried away with all the moronic hype everybody except slinky posted against your better judgment. Now you act like some kind of victim and join the crowd. Have the cahones to admit you knew you should have known better.

    I cant post it with my real name because maybe our moderator will ban me forever too. Now editing subjects on an obvious hoax. Every thread here is a hoax. You all got caught with yer pants down and instead of admitting it you are making somebody a scapegoat. No Cahones Central.

    I love your new name. Matches your message. We know you are not Perry.

    Sounded interesting until Shakespeare said they were able to get 128MB of RAM in it because of the good battery life. Flash RAM is non-powered 99% of the time.

    ... anyway, I thought it was entertaining. The rumors are much more stimulating than Palm's 700p realities.

    Ok, enough Slinky Sillyseason-- it's over. You're banned for a while, or longer and you had your fun, now let's move on.

    Does anyone wonder why Palm replaced Real with pocket tunes? I mean, I love it -- somebody finally wised up, but any clue as to why they made the change? I think it's a tremendous compliment to the ptunes guys. I'm sure Real paid Palm a bit to get that placement, but somehow, they figured out no one was using it? Did anyone confirm which version of ptunes is included?

    Keep it mind it wasn't confirmed if it was basic or Deluxe edition.

    Pocket Tunes did win the Powered Up Award for best Multimedia. Palm would have looked like idiots if they used Real Player again instead of the contest winner IMO.
