    Nice cute device with a lot of features, but no keyboard is a deal breaker for me.

    Put Palm OS and a keyboard in it and you may have a winner IMO.

    This is eye catching to me. Not only do you get 90mb, they include a 128mb card in the package. Hmm, now I wonder what Palms problem was??

    I mean I REALLY want a Treo 650, but when I see specs like this, and then wi-fi included on the MPx, I have the urge to keep waiting. Only thing I see is that the software availability for the Nokias, except the Smartphone which will have more then the 7710

    While I agree that the treo650 is indeed a bit skimpy on the memory side, you can't really compare the two 1 on 1 the different architecture of the OS makes the memmory usage different so 32Mb on a POS device can be more usefull than say 64Mb on a PPC device. Not sure about the OS this nokia is using though..

    There is talk that P1 is offering a free memory card too.. nothing official yet AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK..

    I look at the 'Palm OS' as the 'Mac OS' of the smartphone world. Mac's always lag in specs compared to PC's (ie. proc. speed, etc...), but for way they are made to do they kick major ****. I could never do the type of work I do with better with a PC than a Mac (Video, Motion Graphics, Sound).

    The open platform of the Palm OS makes it very hard to switch for me.

    the mpx looks very cool, but with electronics i've made a life decision to deal with reality, not vaporware. i've been reading about the mpx for over a year now.
    Change is a challenge to the adventurous, an opportunity to the alert, a threat to the insecure.
