    All I can say (and know) is the 890 will have built in GPS and some kind of mapping feature.

    Interestingly, the age of GPS PDA's may be over by the time Palm brings anything to the table. As GPS chipsets become cheap enough to include in handhelds, they are also now becoming a cheap-enough option to include directly in cars, or to buy as an add-on. Stand-alone removable dedicated devices are now going for $400, and built-in car options with larger screens are now getting cheap enough to feature as cheap options for mid-range cars, along with the metallic paint.

    In two years, when this GPS device arrives, most of us wont need them anymore.

    Shouldn't people search for existing made up speculation before posting the stuff they've made up??

    I've also seen a new Treo coming out in the future. It's called the Treo 9000WPRX

    It comes with a 1600x1200 res. screen, 32GB of execution memory and 1TB of storage memory. It's got a CDMA radio w/ support for EVDO rev. A and 0. It also has a quad band GSM radio that supports EDGE, UMTS, HSPDA. It has a bluetooth 3.0 radio and Wifi supporting 802.11a/b/g/n. It sports dual SDHC/IO slots. It even has a built in USB2.0 controller chip so you can connect external hard drives and peripherals like keyboards and mice to it.

    Battery life is an incredible 5 minutes w/ the included 30,000mAh battery.

    Price is TBA.

    that's nonsense. the battery life was slated as a qualified TEN minutes. and there's no 30,000 maH battery - its a 4 pound fuelcell. holy cats, how the story gets twisted every time!!!

    Those of us who occasionally need directions after we leave the car might disagree!

    In fact, I'd like to see a big expansion of location-based services. For starters how about Vindigo that integrates with GPS and your navigation software? Want to find an ATM/restaurant/shop etc? Search in Vindigo or similar (which knows exactly where you are) and it will navigate you there by car and/or on foot as appropriate. I know some of the carriers (Orange anyway) provide something like this already but as I understand it the location information from mobile phone towers isn't good enough for exact positioning or turn-by-turn directions.

    They have been for a while, but why would a car manufacturer stick them in as standard when they can charge you 1,500 as an option.

    (Hopefully) a little thing called competition. It still exists in the car space, especially with cheap Asian cars. If they can do a cheap option for say 200, the rest will be forced to follow.
