    Surur,

    Thanks! I never thought of running multiple POS apps that way. Hmm...

    You know, it won't just be a 900p. It will be a whole line of Treo's, Centro's, Foleo's. Maybe things that haven't been thought of. By late '09' Palm will need a big infusion of cash headed its way.

    late 09 is 2 years away, by that time htc is making phones with double every specs, nokia has probably a 10 mp camera phone and iphone 3 might already be out.

    Unfortunately they have never kept up with the competition! Maybe Jon R will help. I prob will get the 800W and use style tap.

    We will have 3-4 choices next year.

    1.The company in Israel is coming out with a linux device (prob not CDMA)
    2. We have the Android phone (hopefully it will have a Treo Look)
    3. The Palm Linux OSII

    I currently am using a BB 8830 (miss my wealth of programs) and I am trying out the Motorola Q9h (nice phone with the exception of no touch screen)

    Glad to see that Perry is posting again.

    I am new to this site so I would like to say hello to everyone. I just got into this whole wireless communication age and didn't know the complexity of it. I must say reading these posts are very interesting. I have an offering down below that many of you may already have looked through. Itís regarding the (A)ccess (L)inux (P)latform and the push to keep the wonderful world of Palm based applications alive. Please enjoy, and I apologize if this information is old or has already been posted.

    The screen shots below may be an indication of what we can expect on future Palms using this platform.

    I'll be kind, since you're new. ALP was developed by Access, and Palm no longer really deals with Access. Palm is creating their own "next generation" OS, and will not be using ALP.

    It's possible that there will be devices using ALP, but they won't be Palm/Treo/etc.

    I don't know how much we can rely on past experiences with Palm to guide us in figuring out what is next. The new investors and top management seem to be wielding a lot of influence and shaking things up quite a bit. Personally, I'm very hopeful and excited about what they are working up there.

    Is that a release date or the date Sprint goes out of business?

    truth is, my 650 is getting tired and i have no desire to buy anything that is currently on the market- $ vs. improvement- no bargain...
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe...

    If you're suggesting that Palm make a device without a hardware keyboard, you obviously don't understand Palm's strategy. I wouldn't buy a Treo without the famous Treo Form Factor, something that is unique in this WM Pro world as of right now.

    As far as I'm concerned, both the Centro and the Treo 500 have abandoned the "famous Treo Form Factor", what with the loss of top-mounted ring/vibrate switch on the 500, the loss of the "smile" keyboard on 500 and Centro, and the chiclet-sized keys & screen on the Centro.

    Now, the 500 is just a cheap "me too" rehash that has decent hardware specs but is in sore need of the Palm "special sauce". The Centro definitely has its audience & market but Palm MUST address the market for an iPhone-style larger-screened device....or a TX Treo, if you will.

    Right now the biggest criticism I hear from people is that all Treos "are the same". Like it or not, that sweeping generalization is what makes a lot of people end up with BBs or feature-laden dumbphones instead of Treos.

    I would say that the Treo Form Factor includes a QWERTY keyboard (smile or not - the smile didn't appear until the 650), a square screen, and a top mounted ringer switch. The only one that doesn't fit that form factor is the 500v, which is only lacking the ringer switch.

    A lot of people switched from touch screen to qwert keyboard. The iPhone makes everyone wants the touch screen.... Is it a cycle?

    I don't have a iphone but I have a iPod Touch. Definitely the screen and the software are excellent but I have problem in typing the URL...

    It also has a landscape screen.

    I just don't get the full screen thing for people that are message/email centric. If you're typing a lot, the full screen is crap. I'd take something a little wider than the Centro (for some space on the keyboard) and a little thinner with a slightly bigger screen to get all the goodies that are being talked about.

    And it's amazing to see that so many think that the Palm Linux phone is going to be antiquated before it's even released. And that people have so much faith in WM, BB and HTC. HTC makes crap. It looks good and nice, but their quality is overall crap. And WM is still Windows no matter how they try to make it slick. I'd put faith in BB especially if they make a touchscreen phone with a qwerty keyboard.

    Name any rebranded WM phone and there's a good chance HTC made it. The T-Mobile MDA, SDA, Wing, Cingular 8125, 2125, 8525, Star Trek, Verizon/Sprint 6700, 6800, and so many more.

    They know what the are doing, but they didn't make the 755p or the Centro. Word is that Palm is going to have them build their next handheld (WM and Palm OS alike)
