    I don't see Viking's posts as thread-jacking. It's all about "why should the Treo be more expensive" and I've yet to see a single substantive post justifying the price differential other than "because they can" or "the Q is trash" replies. There's NOTHING that justifies a 2x premium. Besides, look at the success of the Razr and Slvr - thin is in. This is the beginning of the end for Palm OS devices (unless the Hollywood they so strongly disavow is stunningly svelte and includes WiFi).

    The Q is trash is by far the funniest response.

    I am guessing that the Hollywood, judging by Palm's track record, will be another device full of hope and potential, but will be another $300-400 dissapointment

As such, I think the Q will become quite popular, provided other carriers besides the "king of high priced data" get it...
    Shadowmite makes a great point. My 2125 was much better one handed that my current 8125; but I just couldn't email from that T9 keyboard. A real keyboard, like the Q, is going to make life difficult for Palm, particularly at that price point.

    It will be a VERY COLD day in a VERY HOT place before Palm releases a high end device at $300-400.

    I use my thumb on the touch screen all the time. Holding it in my hand, my thumb naturally falls right at the base of the screen, so touching an icon is no further than hitting many of the keys.

    It is actually $399, not $299, for the Treo 700w on Verizon.

    You must have some very long thumbs.

    Do you realize that the keys on the Q are actually smaller than the ones on the Treo 650/700?

    The smaller keys have apparently provided more space in between each key, most likely preventing against pressing a specific letter accidentally and lessening the need to have each key so large.

    This most likely compensates for the size of each individual key.

    Yes. I was referring to the Cingular 2125 which only has a telephone dialpad, so you were limited to T9 input. Whether the Q has smaller keys than the Treo 700 is irrelevant as a justification for a $200-300 premium.

    I have to give creidt where it's due - I believe Palm uses an algorithm that compensates for multiple button pushes as you type in the letters, so they can be larger and closer together.

    Don't start that now. There hasn't been a PDA or smartphone I've owned since the 1996 USR Palm Pilot that WASN'T obsolete within 6 months of purchase (unless you stick to one parentage, because Palm now takes forever between releases - but other choices made the 650 obsolete in that time frame).

I imagine that situation has improved now. Yes, developers need to code their apps to be D-Pad friendly and not expect that a touchscreen is available, but 700w owners would want them doing that as well.
    Wait a minute - I thought WM apps DON'T run on Dumbphone OS. I know that Dumbphone apps work on WM5, but not vice-versa. And I had assumed the difference was more than just the touchscreen and inputs.
