    Well, I wanted a Palm OS, in a flip phone design, so I went for it. I should have it in a week or so. Anyone else with an Xplore? I am waiting patiently and hopefully...

    Well, they shipped it. I will be happy to post my experience with it, but be warned, I am a pretty low level user compared to many of you, so be patient. I currently have a Treo 270, but I didn't want to pay for the internet access for such an old phone, but I will upgrade my service once I get the new phone. Bought the 270 used on e-bay about a year ago. The 270 was my first phone/PDA integraded device and I was definately happy with it. I'm on T-mobile.

    GSPDA sells another palmos smartphone with BT called M68:

    http://www.gspda.com/product_1.htm

    The M98 looks suspiciously like the Chinese market XPRO P338 PalmOS smartphone which would make sense is GSL is a leading Asian ODM with significant chinese presence...

    In any case, it does look like a nice alternative to those long sufferring Samsung users pinning for the erstwhile i550 which never arrived...

    Are you 100% sure the phone will work in the US? I thought it was a Tri-Band phone that was made for Germany... I hope it does work for you though!

    What is a trans flash card? And does 65,000 colors equate to high res?

    Well at least this in an option. I love Treo but I will always be a Kyocera 7135 refuge. Clamshell will always be the way to go for me. I would hate to leave sprint and my $10 unlimited data. I guess I can wait a year or 3 for something like this to hit Sprint.

    Is this the only high res, palm, clamshell with external storage?

    Hello James, I started another thread "I just got my Xplore M98", where I give a few reviews, ext. There is another clamshell design, the QDA-700 which I was also looking at, but I really like this one. You can see my reviews under the other thread. I have pictures, but I can't figure out how to post them...

    Cool i'll google the XDA 700. I was pretty hyped I saw that thread 10 min ago.
