    Same for my 8125 - $299 with two year contract at the outset; beats the pricing on the 700p hands down, and although it is one of those dreaded WM5 devices, no problem in dealing with big docs. Again, nto a complete comparison, because it obviously lacks a 3g radio, but does add WiFi (probably because Cingular has been slow on HSDPA).
    I'm not saying the Q isn't going to be a great device. But, like so many of the "misunderstandings" we have around here -- ultimately it matters how you're going to use the device. We all have our perspectives.

    I think the Q is a beautiful piece of technology. In all honesty - if it had a touch screen and full WM5 I'd be very tempted to jump -- even for $200-300 more.

    From a pricing perspective -- does anyone know if manufacturers see a price breaking using the DOS version of WM5?

    Oh boy - Munk offering DOS5 with Doom;
    Palm offering Frankengarnet 5.xxxx with Bejeweled.

    How will I ever be able to make up my mind? Rome, can you help me discern the difference?

    Funny, jerks....

    Rome, i'm still waiting for that comparison. So far, you've had Haggar do all your debating, & invited Geatches smart Arse comments...

    Totally OT (OT from me? getoutta here...)...

    Have you ever loaded DOS/Windows 3.11 on one of today's Pentium 4 machines? Wow...makes you realize how much bloat's been added over the years!

    I ain't going to kiss nothing, but that is a good point. I suppose using smartphone is cheaper, and no touchscreen simplifies development. HTC has plans (HTC Blizzard?) for a smartphone candy bar type phone using full WM5 and a 2.4" touchscreen - but I'm not sure my bifocals are ready for that.

    Surur is right about one thing - convergence is moving full steam ahead, and the days of a stand alone PDA are about to be numbered (they'll be like those $29.95 blister pack calculators fro a couple of years ago, right there on the 7-11 counter next to lighters and lottery tickets).

    I did check my facts...did you? Does the Q really have twice as much memory(flash) as the 700w?...
    The 700W has 32mb of ram memory - a large part of the problem causing its heartburn.
    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...0w+32mb+memory

    That's what you should be concerned about. All of the manufacturers fudge on memory count (just like EPA gas mileage - it may vary). But the key is 32 v 64. I can't imagine less than 64mb of ram in any WM5 device - PPC or smartphone. It is the one place where Palm OS has WM5 beat hands down is in OS utilization.

    Can you get me a Quarterdeck EMM card to go with it too?

    You're giving up Palm's huge library of software if you go with the Q.

    I'll see what I can do.

    In the meantime, add this to your config.sys file

    DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
    DEVICE=C:\EMM386.SYS RAM
    DOS=HIGH,UMB
