    This is part of what Palm could/should have done, without having to modify the whole OS.

    These pictures are from the new , which is drawing rave reviews due to its eye candy in the main.

    This is the default screen.

    This is with the new plug-in, which makes the device a lot more consumer-attractive without reducing the abilities of the platform, or making major changes to the OS.

    It probably only took a handful of engineers a few months to make this, well within Palm's reach. Not doing something like this in the face of the iPhone challenge is just lazy. I suspect the buyers of the Centro are just the usual suspects, and mainly upgraders, whereas Palm needs to grab brand new customers. They are really not trying hard enough.

    Ultimate Phone tries to do a few things as a nice skin. It succeeds in some things but not in others. With all the launchers and such out there, why hasn't some 3rd party tried to do something slick with a skin by now?
    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    I think even if Palm just bundled a few 3rd party custom skins and launchers it would be enough. Instead they are not doing anything at all.
