    I really like the looks of this device. At first, I didn't like the silver, dividing band above the keyboard where the 5-way navigation button is, but I'm getting used to that. Plus, when you see all sides of the 500, you see that this theme continues on the sides with the silver border and also on the back where the camera and speaker are located. Very nice. I like the looks of the grey model much better than the white one. Sammy from Palm Addict does a of the Treo 500v too and his 500v is the grey one.

    I personally wouldn't buy one even if they were here in the states, but I do like to look. ;-)

    exactly....big today equals a pseudo laptop equivalent. most all other devices have become radically less bulky than the good ol' Treo while offering most of the same functionality. it's laughable, really.

    Just a few facts for you guys.

    1 - Everyone doesn't follow the thinner is better thing. I would much rather have better battery life and a good feel in my hand.

    2 - This phone was never trying to be top of the line. For that you will have to wait. Tough luck.

    3 - For many people this phone is not falling short to the iPhone in anyway (except GPS and Wifi). The iPhone doesn't do half of what most WM phones can do plus it has no physical keyboard. It still doesn't do IM right? That is becoming big among the regular people.

    Wasn't the Q just re-released with basically the same form factor as before. So it's a little thinner big whoopee. I think Palm was trying to be different on purpose. If the ultra thin thing has been done to death why try to follow suit. My 700w is still fine. A little smaller would be fine but I definitely don't need the world's thinnest phone. Listening to you guys you would think the Motorola Razr is still taking the world by storm. Regular phone users have gotten over the novelty of super thin along time ago. It's time for you guys to let it go. It's about features and from that standpoint as long as the iPhone is locked down this has it beat. Most people will not use Wifi on there mobile phone. I know it's hard for the uber-geek crowd to believe this but it's just true. Most of your friends/acquaintances don't care. Same for GPS. Although I believe this is closer to a mainstream feature than wifi. Maybe Apple and Starbucks will change the interest level of wifi on mobile phones among regular people. We will see.

    Guess what guys. When I start listing all the things I can do with my mobile phone people are interested at first but then their eyes gloss over. They just don't care about most of it. The one thing that gets a lot of people is the abillity to use TomTom on my phone. Everyone loves that. If I had to say they left something out it would be GPS but they had to leave something to get us to buy the "high-end" phone.

    You are so mistaken. We are trying to tell Palm why they are failing in the market. You are actually enabling that failure by given excuses for their devices looking 3 years old.

    BTW, thick is not the new thin.

    A European phone with no wifi is bad IMO. Data still may not be as accessible price-wise there as it is here in the US. US residents decide to use the "all you can eat" data instead of wifi only because it's accessible and cheap. Except for Verizon and ATT's PDA plans, but even they are cheaper than Europe's data rates, I've read on here.

    And more bad new Big Treo. All the new phones may not all be bone thin, but they're certainly streamlined and thinner than past phones. So YES, the RAZR may have changed perceptions even if it is somewhat crappy.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    Really? Looks faster than my Q for starting up...in fact it looked pretty fast all around. 30-40 second boot time seems pretty standard for these devices. I think watching a video of any WM booting up is fairly painful.

    If you want to see slow, check the new Moto Q9m from Verizon.

    Oh crap. I misunderstood.

    I thought she was saying the video was slow to start.

    You're not alone. 30-40s seemed pretty normal to me, so I thought she meant the video as well.

    Here's some pictures from the unwired of the 500v. Ignoring the thickness, it looks a lot smaller than its compatriots, which may direct some people in its direction.
