    Coming Oct. 28

    A very reliable anonymous source has supplied much more information about this model, including some images. This device will have a 320 by 320 color screen and a built-in keyboard. Also, it will have a 4-way directional pad (a D-pad) with a Select button in the middle.

    Handheld
    Palm has added support for the D-pad to the built-in applications. Users can navigate through the Launcher with it and open apps and use it to look up and dial a phone number.

    The D-pad may become standard feature on future Palm models. It is rumored that the company's other high-end model will also have a D-pad.

    It will run Palm OS 4.1 on a 33 MHz Dragonball processor and have 16 MB of RAM.

    As mentioned earlier, it has a hi-res screen. According to the source, Palm appears to have used the hi-res API from Palm OS 5 on this model, in the same way Acer used it on the s50 and s60 models, which are also OS 4.1. This means apps written in the future to take advantage of OS 5's hi-res screen will also run on this model.

    It has an SD/MMC slot on its lower-right side.

    Big problem: like the Blackberry, you can't use it as a normal phone but only with an earpiece That is a 100% deal killer for me. Moreover, it's bigger than the Treo. Nothing is on the horizon for matching the unique blend of form and function in the Treo. I'm happy with my 180 until Handspring comes out with the next generation one.
