    How right you are. Paying beta testers. Pick me first, please. These guys must be doing something right. Hey, I'll even pay to alpha test the damn thing.

    I guess this is as good a thread as any, is the 700p going to take the SD wifi card ala 700w?

    Well I'm just speculating of course...but on the 700w, the device actually accessed builtin flash on the proc instead of separate doc nand chip/HD like on PalmOS NVFS devices. For example, on the LD the compressed rom is actually on the HD which has to be uncompressed and loaded onto ram everytime it boots up. This is one of the reasons why the LD is so much slower than nand based devices like the Tx and 650. However, if a NVFS device uses builtin flash on the proc instead of separate doc or HD to load the OS etc, this could significantly increase performance and the nand/HD could then only be used for storage...
