    The Group's web site has posted a spec. list and a piccy of the device, which is GSPDA's first Palm OS 5-derived unit. The device is said to run Palm OS 5.4, possibly PalmSource's smart phone oriented OS, 'Garnet'.
    No mention of bluetooth, though.

    Looks like a great phone! But you know what, I've gotten so spoiled by the keyboard on the Treo600, I don't know if I could ever go back to grafiti.

    Yup, looks nice indeed. It would certainly be great for us PalmOS users if more companies start licensing the OS, especially in the smartphone market. I only wonder if this model will make it past concept stage, if it is real at all.

    As for the keyboard, although it is not specifically mentioned, the specs do show the following:
    Dimension:
    - 106mm x 50.8mm x 23.5mm
    - 130.5mm x 50.8mm x 23.5mm (Slide up)
    So this seems in fact to have a sliding keyboard (meaning probably not comparable to Treo's nice clicking keys, but a keyboard anyway... and about the same size as Treo's KB, I'd say!).

    Hmmm. A 24.5 mm keyboard is awfully tiny!

    Well... I don't know about the Treo 600, but my Treo180's keyboard is 25mm in height... so I see no big difference there. I was mostly wondering about what type of keys a sliding keyboard can use...

    seems like they would be flush and not raised huh? to allow for the motion?
