    I have to laugh, have you seen that new MPX from Motorola? I thought it looked impressive. But get a load of the screenshots here:

    This thing is out of control. I'm telling you. Don't bother with the design work fellas and don't waste time being original. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, don't be clever. Just copy the thing and stick Palm OS on it. Oh yeah and put a 320 X 480 screen on it while you're there. Thank you and make it CDMA so I can get a signal with Verizon, ok?

    I mean it. This thing has everything except the Palm OS. Yeah, the keyboard is funky. Yeah, it's big. But HOLY COW, is there anything it can't do? WiFi, Bluetooth, portrait or landscape screen; 1.2 MP camera!!! I mean really.

    About the only negative I see is that the thing is probably so powerful that it will suck the battery dry in 30 minutes.... Which leads me to another point..... REMOVEABLE BATTERY. It actually has one..... hint hint

    HA! Well, I'm still waiting for my Treo 600 on Verizon. No sense getting a device as cool as the MPX when it runs on GSM (thank you but no thank you) and runs on Pocket PC (nah, been there and done that).

    So cool......

    You did HoFo? At those prices, I'll bet he was a very nice man.

    All kidding aside, well worth it if you've got it. That's my feeling.

    Such a cool unit.

    very cool, but I can't believe the battery could withstand more than 60 minutes.

    I'd also be a little nervous about multiple hinges - more things to go wrong...

    I agree, the lack of 850 is a huge mistake IMO. I don't know why they would let that slide. Yes, only AT&T is rolling out 850 MHz at the moment. But still, on a top of the line device like that, you would think they would be going all the way. I mean, heck, the Treo 600 can do 850 MHz.

    GSM phone frequency band. The Treo is quad band which includes 850 MHz. Most devices in the past have been tri-band and have excluded the 850 range.

    I am not aware, PALMOS has any OS with capability to run camera and WIFI plus web browser at the same time.

    Can you show us please? (no, save state ain't it) thanks.

    It can run alpha version of POS emu. And the strength of PPCPE is NOT the hardware, but the software. PPC has far more advance software than any POS softwares by now. Palm has not improved in the past 2 years.

    GSM has bigger market, the CDMA will be served by XDAIII.
