    Geeze..... Palm really thinks they can hang on to the POS user base for that long. Maybe we will see a Treo 800P with our old buddy Garnet afterall.

    No new Palm OS until end of calandar year 2008. No new form factor until mid 2009. Palm fans have to wait yet another year and a half for something innovative from the people who pretty much launched the smartphone market. Sad.

    The conference call says that Palm's current progress on their Linux OS will allow them to put products to market by end of 2008. Further, Ed made a statement that it has been encouraging to see their new OS running on actual devices. This seems to indicate that Palm-Linux is in some kind of alpha or beta form right now. Given the amount of testing a new device would require and with the need for carrier approval, Palm would almost certainly need to have functional unit(s) ready to go by spring.

    While dates and deadlines are important to meet, what really matters for Palm and its future is if this new OS is any good.

    If it's just "ok" that probably won't be enough to rebound. If it's outstanding then they could. Sprint will pick up the device no matter what, so that's their foot in the door. Verizon, continuing the CDMA envy rivalry, will get it soon after along with an unlocked GSM version.

    From that point on, it's all about whether it is a compelling OS, which remains to be seen.

    There is still a large gap between everyday feature flip phones and high end, business smartphones that needs to be filled. Things like iPhone and Centro work towards that but there needs to be something more ubiquitous, powerful and user friendly. I don't see RIM doing that; WM with Photon might, but they have a large order to fill too; iPhone is locked to AT&T for the next 4.5 years.

    Yep, but in some ways the longer it takes them to release it the more impressive it will have to be.

    .
    I disagree. Getting their OS out is as important as the quality. If they dither too much longer, it won't matter how good their OS is.

    I really don't see why Palm is taking so long if they have been building this for some time... what do they have 3 people working 2 hours a day or something like that?? it sure seems like it...

    Palm needs to do something like surprise us with a GSM smartphone by the end of the year with a new Linux based OS... I don't care if it has the basic smartphone specs.... 802.11, EDGE, UMTS, 2.0MP camera, 1200MHz battery, etc. Just a new OS and a little thinner with actual 21st century specs would be nice!

    Like it was said before, its sad that a company that basically launched the smartphone business, is now playing catch up in last place...
