Then put it on sale for less than an off-contract Pre.
    Once again, you prove my point. I really don't give a crap about all of that. When that guy gets up on the stage with a device in his hand, I look at the device, whereas you're just drooling over the guy holding it. Brain goes off, wallet comes out. Do you have the same reaction with Bill Gates or Paul Allen? Didn't think so.

    if that's his point, then ok.

    but if that's his point, then why would he say it's easier to do on an iPhone than a Pre since Palm actually does make it easy, to the point of encouraging it?

    Except that wasn't what got the MP3 downloader's attention. What got their attention was the copyright owners suing. If you think Apple would not sue over something like jailbreaking, you haven't been around the industry long enough.

    While the iPhone/touch can do many of these things, the larger screen allows for a better experience in MOST cases. If you don't agree that's fine. You can continue using your netbook and kindle, or hoping for the hybrid amazon/Palm tablet that in your own words will "kill many devices".


    Okay, Agree the pad is good.
    but this



    Would do everything you listed minus the APPS and iWork.
    Missing APPS is a huge blow, but look at the positives

    Can multitask
    Has a physical keyboard
    Can be used as an external harddrive
    and
    the swipes

    Yeah, it's a bummer, but I'm not really expecting Palm to get into the "licensing the OS" biz again. Sure did pump up the stock though about 9 years ago. Anyway, the device fragmentation is Android's problem. Ask Symbian and WM guys about that one.

    PALM can do a similar one. If they really want to be in the game , they should partner with Amazon.
    You know, this all really ticks me off. I got my start doing dev for PDAs, handheld data collectors, and all that jazz. I got really good, and got really good paychecks from companies to do that stuff. Then, suddenly, sometime around 2005, everyone began saying "PDAS ARE DEAD". Then I had to change my resume to a "Smartphone/Mobile Developer". I struggled to find work in my location, and ended up becoming a "generalist". At lower pay than I had made before.

    Then, after everyone quieted down about PDAs, Apple had to go and release the iPod Touch. It's a PDA, no way around it. It does a lot of the same stuff my old Tungsten used to do, but with built-in wifi and an updated screen. I had a music player, a wifi card, etc. If that's not enough, Apple has to release a BIGGER PDA. The iPad. Yeah, right. PDAs are dead. Tell that to my freaking paycheck. Of course Palm can do a PDA. They can do all sorts and sizes of PDAs. They can make big flat ones, or small portable ones with nice music playback. But if THEY did it, everyone would scratch their heads and say "Why is Palm getting back into doing PDAs?"
