    Well, I remember about a year ago I swapped my old Visor Deluxe for a nice color Zaurus at Best Buy. I got it, and I loved the thing. It was great. Although at first I did miss some of the features and programs of the palm OS, I eventually forgot that which was missing. So for quite a while I had my Zaurus. I loved it. Although the trusty thing did have some problems, it worked great. I even got a nice leather case for it. Alas at this time last night, my beloved Sharp Zaurus died. No warning, no reason. Just died. A quick and painless death. The warranty from Sharp is of course up. However I did have the foresight to get a Best Buy warranty. Soon my Zaurus will be gone, and I will have a credit at Best Buy with which I can purchase a new PDA.

    So what I ask for here, are for recommendations. I have decided to return to the Palm OS because my experience with it and my Visor was a good one. Plus being a Linux zealot I really shouldn't be harboring items that utilize Microsoft's OS... My price point is ~$500.00 USD. The four most important things are:

    1. Color Screen
    2. SD Card Slot
    3. 802.11b (either through CF card slot or built-in)
    4. Thumb keyboard.

    Oh yeah, it has to be something they sell at Best Buy. Can't be from anywhere else...

    There's rumors that a WiFi SD card should be out sometime this fall. Don't know as I'd hold my breath for it, but it would increase your options quite a bit.

    T|C is your best bet.

    I've decided to become enigmatic.

    Well I guess I'm late to the discussion, but I would have also pointed out Sony's new UX 50 and the NX70 + Wlan card. Of course they use MS instead of SD, but at least the NX series als ouses CF... Also I believe the wifi range on the NX+Wlan card is much better than the T|C. In addition the new NX73/80 also have much better battery longevity than the earlier NX's... Anyway, good luck with your T|C!

    Yeah I looked into the Sonys but no SD slot wasn't really going to cut it since I have a 256MB SD Card that I didn't want the money I spent on that to go down the toilet.
