    I still have a Palm Vx or something like that somewhere around here. PDA standalone if anyone remembers. How old it that one, about 7yrs.?
    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!

    Older than that. The Vx came out in 1999.

    I still have a Palm III from 1997. I can remember taking notes on it in meetings using Graffiti. I really thought that was pretty cool. I'm sure others around here have older vintages.

    I sure would love to see Palm produce something competitive with the EVO. 4G is optional in my mind, but a pack-leading processor and high resolution display would be nice.

    Check this out I still have two CASIO ( Tandy) Z-7000's . one still in the box unopened. I think that was the first PDA ?? was 1994 I got it. and The Palm Pilot I have i think is from 1996 . Somewhere around my house I think I have a visor phone but cant fiind it. I loved PDA;s and Palm so much I built a little Display once. All the handhelds from the Pilot to handsprings to Treo to Centro.

    Edit : Just realized my Palm Pilot is branded US Robotics. Palm Pilot on Left and US Robotics on Right.

    Nope, no color. The V came out in Feb 1999 and the Vx came out in October 1999. Both were grey-scale. The V had 2MB of memory and Vx had 8MB.

    Palm's first color device was the Palm IIIc. It came out a year later (around Feb 2000). I skipped the Vx and went to the IIIc.

    I'm almost certain I have one with a color screen too. I must have 2 Palm PDAs lying around here somewhere. LOL!
    The problem was I then went to Windows CE and then to phones with PDAs built in(smartphones of course) and forgot all about these.

    Boy did things change within 10 years!!

    You probably have one of the m500 series that Palm came out with later. Those replaced the V series in the line-up. I believe they were color. I never bought any of those. By then I had moved on to Handspring and the Visor.

    the evo is great but there is no 4g period . it is a good selling point to the ignorant ..but the phone on its own is pretty neat,

    4G will eventually be more wide-spread. The same could be said for 3G when it first started out. Sprint has an aggressive schedule for deploying WiMax. Even though 4G has not officially debuted here in the Washington, DC area, it has actually been deployed. It's still pretty sparse, but at least it's here. (I don't have an EVO yet to test it out.)

    You're quite right, though. The EVO is quite enough phone in its own right, even without the 4G.

    m500 was color. I owned one, that was replaced 6 times by Palm because of either screen issues, or charging issues. I then got them to send me a new m515 that, out of the box, didn't work. I still have that replacement m515 somewhere in my home.

    Hahaha! I see the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    I think the Palm V was the most sturdy device Palm ever made. That thing was rock solid. Never had a problem with it.

    went to look at an evo today.. Android is almost impossible to use after having my pre. And I couldn't believe how awful the color and resolution of the screen were, I thought I had timewarped back to the nineties. As far as I'm concerned my sprint pre runs circles around the evo..

    Oh I still am. I love webOS more over than Android, but so far its the hardware that needs to be update. Pre compared to the Evo is just molasses the way things moved on there. Evo just so smooth with scrolling and doesn't lag much when I'm listening to music. Hopefully next year Palm will have something better so I can return to webOS.

    Well, after thinking and self debating I got me an Evo last Tuesday. I won't lie, it is too big for my taste (a 3.7 or 4 inch display would be better I think) and it is more difficult to use this dang virtual kb (typing this from my Evo). I kept and still use my beloved Pre, I think this Evo is going back before 30 days.

    In multitasking and many other things my Pre is way ahead of Android. In Android it takes 3 or more steps to do one thing that takes 1 or 2 steps on webOS.

    Now if the Pre had Evo-like features and better hardware many of us would be very happy. Android and this new Htc phone have many good things, but I am more productive and feel better with my Pre.

    Remember that HTC have always been able to put 100% of their resources into building hardware, because they get their OS for free. Palm on the other hand was struggling for cash yet had to split their resources into creating an OS and hardware alone. So it's no surprise that HTC have better build quality. Now that the finance issue is alleviated and HP can help with the hardware, things should be looking up.
    thanks. Installed, so far no TMC's. Still hoping we get a new top notch hardware by year end.

    After a week testing an Evo, I decided i'm going to replace my pre. I love the pre's OS but the lag and keyboard are big issues for me. I can type better and faster on the EVO and apps load without lag (I had overclocked pre to 800mhz) Also, Evo's battery life is way better than the pre. I can go 14+ hours with the EVO. My pre would only last 8 hours at most even with a 1400mah battery. Hands down, Pre's multitasking is far superior to Androids, but android is still doable. So if anyone is interested in the switch, here are my pro's and con's for now. I'm sure i will add more since i've only had the Evo for a week.

    Pros:
    More responsive
    Better keyboard (This is my own opinion. Try it for yourself)
    Better battery life
    More apps
    Widgets

    Cons:
    Multitasking isn't close to the Pre
    Have to download 3rd party app for Yahoo mail
    Pay extra $10 a month for "4G" even though i don't have 4G in the area
    My first theme - Mac OSX Theme Gallery or Pre Themer

    You don't need to use a third party app for Yahoo mail. Use the HTC mail and...

    Go to manual setup > IMAP account and change to these settings....


    Imap server - imap.mail.yahoo.com

    Yeah the built in HTC Email works perfect for Yahoo. Download Task OS and you will be multi tasking just like the Pre. As for the $10 well Sprint is going to be moving to 4G phones and they all will have the $10 charge . not much you can do about that other then keep your 3g phone.

    WHat's the point of me paying $10.00 extra now when 4G wouldn't in my area for at least a year or two probably even more. I basically use wifi more than evo
