    The O2 Atom is coming to USA as a rebranded HP PPC-Phone.

    For those who are not addicted to a keyboard, and who use their PDA for entertainment, it certainly deserves consideration.

    Cool! I saw that but wasn't sure they were going to release it here.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    I'm so used to using the stylus on my PDAs, it doesn't bother me anymore. But I see what you mean.

    If you love Transcriber, you should check out its big brother, Calligrapher by PhatWare. It rocks.

    Where should handwriting recognition software be installed? On the device or card? I found trials for this one and another, and both are over 5MB each. I hope I can get away with the card.

    Oh man, now you got me off my game (waiting for a Cingular 8125). I think no keyboard is definitely doable - and it sure looks small by comparison to even my 2125. This year is REALLY going to be tough.

    Did anyone else notice it has a built in FM radio?

    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    No keyboard is a no-go for me. That's why I gave up on the non-communicating PDAs in the first place. My handwriting is bad enough that these things never know what I'm writing so my input slows dramatically. Worse, I don't want to pull out a stylus to reply to an SMS.

    Wow... what a phone. I don't know if I can do a no keyboard phone. I'm with you driven although I have nice handwriting and am not a doctor. I hate the recognition issues and like typing. But wow... what a nice phone. With all those features it's in a whole new league...

    Will the current O2 version (unlocked versions for sale on ebay) work in the US on Cingular?

    does that mean it will also ship with the MSFP update for DirectPush? I read somewhere that HP would not be releasing any phones this year without DirectPush.

    A2DP appears to be coming throught without MSFP. The Eten M600 also appears to have gotten A2DP in a recent ROM update, with no MSFP.

    Just read on another site that audio is very poor. People are complaining about being able to listen to MP3s. Oh well, I was considering giving the Atom a try.....

    Read this thread here to see whether A2DP on the Atom is worth your while or not. Most people seem happy enough with it.

    For those who have used the real O2 Atom - how is the screen size? Can you easily use the on screen keyboard; is handwriting recognition as least as good (or pathetic depending upon your view) as a standard size QVGA screen?
