iPod Touch is a decent product, im sure with superior WebOS, a Palm WebOS PDA would be great. I have no problem putting out $300 for it.
Would Palm ever consider this?
A smartphone have many aspect that are not device related (network, contract, plan, etc), a PDA would have no problem at all.
It should be easy to adjust webOS for a PDA that is not always connected. think about it, WebOS is the closest thing to a real computer that any Mobile device ever be, a truly multi-tasking device that can in many situations, replace a computer in finishing the task.
This would be a huge hit. I don't believe PDA market is dead, its just nobody had come up with right product. iPod touch has nice UI, but fundamentally is not multi-tasking so it can't in anyway be used to replace a computer. But WebOS CAN.
This is right product to revive the PDA market. Palm should do it.
What do you think?
