Part of the problem is that we really don't know "when" in the game we are, aside from Palm's "1st half of '09" window - which they're 70 percent of the way through.

Palm is supposedly up against a new iPhone, but aside from more memory and the 3.0 software, nothing is confirmed there.

So all of these statements and prognostications are going to have be revisited once they start the marketing blitz. We won't have long to wait...
