    Um, you are aware that pretty much every phone is made in China, right?

    Now, I don't know about anyone else, but when I think of the concepts Nature, harmony & simplicity... in my mind these trigger the concepts of "Zen" and "Budhism". And now this/these commercials being filmed in China...

    Palm is building a theme around this phone. A theme that permeates every aspect of the phone: design, marketing and user experience. The "subliminal message", if you will, is "natural (intiutive?) simplicity". They want to say something along the lines of, "The Zen of Palm is back," or "Look at the new Zen of Palm."

    Brilliant if they can manage to pull it off. Doesn't seem like anyone other than myself is feeling this theme though.
    I'm with you, I think you've nailed the marketing theme.

    It's OK. Economic models aren't contagious.
