    Aside from the Treo 650, it has been a long time since I have seen a Palm OS Smartphone. Samsung seems to have gone to sleep. Are there any other manufacturers of Palm Smartphones?

    Both are tri-band GSM so they might not be of any use to you. Probably best not to wait for the Samsung i550:

    Just checked the Group Sense web site and it seems there will be two versions of the M68, GSM900/1800/1900MHz and GSM850/1800/1900MHz, the latter targetted at the US. Sorry if my previous post misled you

    Thanks for your comments. It seems that most of the Smartphones are Windows Mobile. Palm OS must really be on the way out. Oh well!!!

    I was waiting for Kyocera to come out with a replacement/upgrade for the 7135 which I enjoyed very much, except fot the outdated Palm OS 4.1 and the slow processor, but when they didn't move, I had to move on.

    The smartphone (Actually PDA phones and smartphones are not exactly the same) movement seems more active using the PPC OS instead. So, I joined the PPC crowd. I still have palm devices that I use, like the IQue3600 Palm PDA with built-in GPS navigation.

    Iforgot what the Samsung I7030C will be, Palm or PPC based

    Samsung i-730 is PPC, if that's the model you're referring to.

    Most computers are Windows, does not make them better. After all the loudest person is the most correct person. I'm looking forward to new Palm OS phones and the Cobalt OS that is going to run with Linux. The Treo 650 was pushed out the door and had a few bugs, but it is still the best smartphone out there, the Treo 600 being the second best. Everyone is trying to emulate the Treo's and are a step behind.

    Some of us like the versatility of Palm OS or have applications programs that have not migrated to PPC which discourages us from making the move. I am the latter. I love Microsoft and truly appreciate all they have done but have come to like Palm OS as well and the implementation on the TREo 650.
    Competition encourages companies to progress with new features or be left in the dust. Would love to see some competitive Palm OS products or, I fear, Palm OS will be left in the dust. The proliferation of Windows Mobile Smartphones will cause many to not consider Palm OS phones.
    We love the latest most powerful feature-packed gadgets. Is PalmSource sleeping in addition to Samsung......
