    Here it is (after there was a rumor about it having a vertical slider qwerty):



    Rumor: Palm Nova to Be Touchscreen + QWERTY Slider

    It goes to show you how uninspired Palm's hardware designers were until Rubinstein and his team joined Palm.

    I'm not saying the design above is Palm's (it isn't) but from previous product launches, it seemed clear that Palm was going to keep their poor design choices from the past.

    1. the forum member that created that was somewhat close in terms of functional design but way off in terms of aesthetics.
    2. damn that 600/700 series is so ugly now and looks like a dinosaur compared to the sleek minimalist beauty of the PREEEEEE.
    3. i recognize that OS in the mock up as ALPOS and it's just as ugly.

    Funny...a Windows Start button....and on Verizon.

    I'm the one who predicted Nova would never exist! I said it was vaporware and that Palm simply didn't have enough left in the tank to actually finish it. And I have never been happier to be DEAD WRONG! I went from total skeptic to total convert.

    I'll be porting my # from AT&T, selling my GSM phones (about a dozen) and embracing Sprint and the Pre. Never thought I'd say any of that, but here we are, and I'm sayin' it.

    I do think I'm going to miss the 5 way, though.

    I'm out of my mind. But feel free to leave a message.

    Indeed... I do believe this is the first thing we've ever agreed on. Heh.

    There was a guy on these forums who complained that he had to touch the screen to use one of my Treo applications instead of the 5-way.

    It does suck not having buttons sometimes. Makes no look changes (next song especially) nearly impossible. Not to mention I can get from locked to web, messages, calendar, and a number of apps on my Treo without having to look at the screen...I am going to miss that.
    Phone: 700p > Pre
    PMP: Archos 605 (30GB) and iPod Touch (16GB)

    Truth
    Treo 650p --> Treo 755p --> Pre

    +1. I'd take a little function over iphone copycat form any day.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing a secondary groove along the sides to make slipping into a cradle and using the slider that much easier while in the cradle.

    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    I searched 'Nova' here at TC and here's one of the early discussions I found:
