    So this week, I had to find a new home phone solution. My Sun Rocket went out of business suddenly, leaving me withh no home phone and cutting of alot of my friends and clients. I chose TMobile @home, which is working well. But of course, my Treo 680 doesn't do wifi, so it can't take advantage of the free calls. Here is what I'd like my future Treo to support...
    - 128 megs of ram
    - legacy palm application support
    - wifi and Unlicensed Mobile Access calls
    - highspeed data (UMTS)
    - GPS built-in
    - SD card support for at least 8gb cards
    - video and mp3 playback
    - priced under $600 and unlocked GSM

    Palm, are you listening?listening?listening?
    Palm III -> Palm V -> Blue Palm Vx w/Omnisky -> Treo 270 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 680

    You'd have more luck channeling Helen Keller than getting someone at Palm to listen.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Impressive listing of specs. But your price range is very unrealistic. Even devices such as the WM HTC Atremis are better than $600 before contract, and that doesn't have SDHC support or UMA access support.

    In addition, you are asking for TMob @ Home, sheesh. That would mean that it has to be a carrier-branded phone. Which while knocking down the price, will usually criple itin ohter areas such as UMTS (nothing on TMob there just yet) and Palm program legacy support (TMob doesn't want to support the Palm OS ecosystem, else they'd be selling Treos).

    Still makes for a nice wish list. Very decent one too. Beside Palm, I hope LG, Moto, and SE are listening too.

    Legacy Palm Application support is almost guaranteed, as that is the goal of POSII.

    Things like GPS and wifi are carrier dependent, but no reason why it couldn't be done.

    Video and MP3 playback are easily done.

    You can learn a lot via Palm's own slides about their plans.

    As far as them reading this, I can assure you they do read this forums and are taking notes. Doesn't mean everything will be done but they are aware.
