    To be honest, I'm more concerned with whether or not devices can be upgraded to Cobalt 6.1.

    Sure, if you can get somebody to write Cobalt 6.1 for the Treo 650, have him contact me and I'll buy a Dell Axim X50 for him to reprogram.

    If you're thinking that the t650 might be upgraded to any version of Cobalt, I'd suggest it's unlikely. More likely that an as yet unknown high end device in the Treo family with more RAM and a better processor will sport this, or at least be upgradable.

    Not only will it 99.9999% not be upgradable, I don't think I'd want it to be. From what I hear Cobalt is so different that such an upgrade would likely cause major instability with existing applications and such. It's not the kind of thing that I'd want to do with a phone where reliability is key. Imagine all the people complaining about network searches complaining that for whatever reason the upgrade process didn't work completely or some of their applications stopped working and they want to go back. All these people running to Sprint, T-mobile, etc. for tech support. It would be a nightmare.

    So then Cobalt comes out people will have to re-buy ALL of their Palm devices to use it? That is the height of stupidity!

    I read earlier this week that Palmone has repeatedly mentioned releaseing multiple Treo devices in the fall to flesh out the family. I took this to mean next year and that is when I expect a Cobalt device. It all fits nicely with P1's product release scheduals.

    Cobalt has featured PACE from the beginning. PACE = Palm Application Compatibility Evironment, the same thingy that lets you run POS 1-4 software on your POS 5 (or Garnet if you prefer) device.
