    "According to PalmSource PRPRPR $MAX$ $will$ $support$ $the$ $concurrent$ $operation$ $of$ $multiple$ $applications$ $and$ $tasks$ $and$ $provide$ $easy$ $access$ $to$ $background$ $tasks$. $It$ $has$ $been$ $designed$ $to$ $deliver$ $a$ $predictable$ $and$ $intuitive$ $navigation$ $model$ $for$ $both$ $one$- $and$ $two$-$handed$ $user$ $interface$ $schemes$ $with$ $support$ $for$ $five$-$way$ $navigation$ $and$ $two$ $dedicated$ $keys$, $as$ $well$ $as$ $touch$-$screen$ $and$ $stylus$ $input$ $mechanisms$.

    Maureen O'Connell, PalmSource's senior director, Corporate Communications later clarified that this does not mean that it will necessarily look like the traditional Palm OS UI.

    'It's not particularly our intention that MAX inherit much of the traditional look and feel of the Palm OS,' she said, 'while this paradigm works fine on PDA-like devices with touchscreens, it's not as effective on more "phone like" devices - MAX is intended to address both effectively.'"

    ummmm it apears to me that Maureen is trying to wake up Palm folks in Ca. Hello.....????
    Technological superiority has never won a product battle. If that were the case we would all be flying in supersonic Concordes and using Apple computers.

    The key to winning the battle is a combination of price, convenience, marketing, sound business model and a bit of luck.

    Uh oh, that's usually code for "neither efficiently".

    I think what they are trying to deal with is similar to the desktop versus mobile formatting for web sites. On a limited capability phone, the whet will be normal by then 480 x 480 screen on a PDA will need something different from say a 120 x 120 Razr
