    man thats a great article. im not surprised that the have a great os, yet still find ways to stumble when they are ready to make it big. i do thick some are bitter about the folio cancellation. if i remember wasnt that supposed to be like the atrix 4g, but in a more roundabout way?
    samsung i730 - blackberry storm- palm pre plus - samsung omnia - palm pre plus - palm pre 2 - ????

    i refuse to buy anything apple with there asinine standards, especially when theres a perfectly good standard that everybody else is using. bah.

    It was a trip down memory lane of all my Palm (and Clie) products...

    Remember paying $500 for a phone on contract?

    Great read! And the Folio was suppose to be a laptop/netbook that worked with your Treo. It's more like how the BlackBerry PlayBook works with your BlackBerry phone.

    I bought a Clie, paid almost that for it, and it was just a PDA (and camera) - no phone.

    Thanks for sharing a great article!!!
    I started with the IIIe... and had several including a couple Treos.. In fact, still using my Treo 680... revived it from a broken screen incident a few months ago.. but love it, including its integration with my Lotus Notes client... So... will probably keep it until it ultimately dies.. (My kids have been pushing me to evolve... will see how long that goes.. :-) )

    I still have the Tungsten T3 and nonfunctioning handspring visor. I agree that the T3 was probably palm's best device. Great form factor and the build quality is incredible, slider works as well now as the day I bought it. In fact I'll probably start using it again for epocrates access until I decide on another smart phone platform.

    Amazing Article.

    Now I understand why the bidders were interested in Palm.. I am not surprised. Look at Touchstone. such technology is not even available with apple & the others.

    Best part of webOS is it's interface is still simple yet powerful.

    Oh About the Rebirth That's gonna happen with all the bells & whistles.

    I had high hopes for the Palm WebOS when everyone heard the news of the HP acquisition. Well, we all wished that could have been true specially with HP leadership and deep-pockets. But in the end, it all turned our to be a nightmare with HP running the efforts of WebOS into the garbage. Let's hope that WebOS finally goes into being an open source platform, we could see better days for the forgotten Palm OS.

    good read, too bad it wasn't updated
    I remember waiting for a wi-fi palmos based treo back then (I was in elementary school I think)
    then one day, my dad came in and mentioned a Palm iPhone thing, where I went to, and BEHOLD. there was pre.
