    Yep I agree. Sprint is CHEAP. I will probably stick with them until Cingular gets HSDPA in my area and the Hermes is released/reasonably priced. EvDO is too fast to go to EGPRS.

    EDIT. Just looked at a pic of the S200 and the buttons in question seem much better differentiated from their neighbours than those on the Hermes. Can't be sure from pics of course.
    I understand what you mean...if i understood you correctly the buttons look like they have a similar feel to them and such...and yeah that could be difficult...especially placing those in the middle of 2 other sets...should have followed something like the prophet...this is very well done

    I'm pretty fired up for this device. Too bad it's not expected here until late 2006 at the eariliest.
    I so want HSDAP and WM5 and we've had HSDPA here for a while. I'd have gotten the 8125 by now if it had HSDPA. I've played with a few people's T-Mobile MDA's and I really like it.
    At this point even if Palm releases the "Hollywood" (WM5, HSDPA) or whatever it is/was, I'll probabally hold out for the Hermes. I'm liking the screen real estate.

    MicroSD belongs to a tiny cellphone, not a big mofo like this. With all that speed, you can literally fill up the microSD card in minutes.

    Another gallery of pictures, probably from the older model. Note how much thinner it is than the HTC Wizard.

    I dont know about that Mini-USB headset, seems a little odd to me. No biggy, might have a nice set of A2DP headphones out by the times HSDPA and this device are in my area. Also what was the comment about this phone having enough speed to fill the transflash card in minutes.

    What are the dimensions of the Hermes - I thought it was the same size as the Wizard?
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    I would also like to know the dimensions. Any idea when Verizon might get it?

    Its about the same, but slightly thinner.

    HTC Hermes 111 x 57 x 21 (+1 mm for a small hump)

    HTC Wizard 108 x 58 x 23.7

    Thanks Surur. If those dimensions are correct thene that makes the phone smaller than te Treo all around. That is great news I'm really liking this phone, but I don't see it coming out on Verizon anytime soon. Hopefully my 650 won't fall over dead by then. It's truly on it's last leg thanks to some abuse it has taken by accident.

    The Hermes will never be available for Verizon. They may get a similar model,but it will be the predecessor to the HTC Apache (PPC/VX-6700).

    Isn't the Hermes the base model for all carriers and they will build around this base model?

    Just like the Wizard is the base model for the current gen phones, right?

    The big deal breaker for me with Sprint is the lack of international roaming. If you travel to europe several times per year this is a must.

    (The SIM card portability and lack of carrier tie-in with the phones are VERY attractive features as well!)

    Yes and no. The Wizard and the Apache are similar, but they have some key differences. Namely processor, form factor, and keyboards. They are not the same phone but are considered very close relation.

    Thankfully they have been repositioned so they're like the Prophet now:

    This, however, is not so good:
