    You can also check out The Clie looks pretty cool and since it has 320x320 resolution and color TFT it's making my Prism look bad.

    How and/or what did they do to get the resolution of the Clie to 320x320???? I hope that the next color version from HS will be able to use whatever Sony did with the Clie.

    When pics of the original Cli were first circulating the web, I read somewhere that the additional silkscreen buttons had to do with entering text in Japanese. They probably won't show up on the US release, nor will they probably have any use for English speakers.

    I have to hand it to Sony. I was less than lukewarm about the first Cli, but it looks like the company got it right this time. I love the design of the unit, and I especially love the fact that Sony was able to double the resolution.

    This is a great time for the Palm platform: higher resolutions, slimmer form factors with color, cheaper entry-level models, an upcoming i-mode Palm. Now all we need is a color Edge.

    The price is not as bad as I thought it would be....., Actually, I would say it quite......CHEAP!
    According to a Bloomberg news item, it will be priced at about 50,000 yen, ($416), considering the high price of gadgets in Japan, I would think this is the best buy yet. It's got speed, beauty, great display, great features, good brandname, expansion... Its FULLY LOADED! If it is as good as it seems, I probably would ditch Handspring this time....
    We love the competition! =D

    Great research, meitsjustme -- you should think about starting a site!
    Now we see once again why Sony is Sony.
    You don't stay on top for, what, 30 yrs? for nothing.
    (Hey, James -- guess it's time to add SNE (Sony) to the stock-trakcer on the VC home page. 68 right now; they're worth it.)
    Gotta give 'em credit.
    Blows the whole mkt. open.

    I was completely off guard, did not know Sony has something, too...

    I guess I have to have little more time to look at the thing, but personally I don't dig that design that much, which is rare for me being die-hard SONY fun since first Walkman...

    edge, Clie, and new Palm's coming, too? what a %#$@ is going on!!? can't catch up with stuff!! I feel like being in Japan again, where you have to buy new cellphone once a year or two to just keep up with new stuff, you know...

    one thing we have not yet seen, and probably won't see here in the State, is Sharp's Zaurus MI-E1. it has every feature the new Clie has, plus built-in keyboard which slides out. I like to see that thing here, too, stirring up this whole PDA thing and make it more interesting!!

    forgot to mention, did you notice the design of the remote for headphone? two cords coming out from same end. you know that is a good design. and from that you can tell CLIE is meant to be in shirts' pocket rather than in bag.

    This is hurting me a lot. Personally, I can't stand anything sony ever made, everything. But this...this is....looking great. I had no idea Sony had the talent to make such a great handheld. Built in mp3 playback, wow. Headphone jack, good speaker (from what people are saying) and a jog dial (WHEN THE HELL ARE MANUF GONNA REALIZE THIS SHOULD BE IN EVERY HANDHELD!!!). MS isn't really half bad either. I was looking foward to getting a MS adapter for my VDx. Everything on this handheld looks great. Did I mention it really hurts to say this? :P Sony would be a bunch of idiots if they didn't release this baby in the US/Canada. Its exactly what the palm platform has been looking for, a real move to multimedia. Handspring started it, but looks like Sony did it better. If this pops up in US/Can, I will seriously consider getting this over a new Visor. Damn this hurts to say. I wonder, Springboard to Memory Stick adapter, possible? COME ON HAND, LETS SEE SOME INNOVATION. Lets see you guys top Sony with something totally better, and lets see it soon, cause....its getting harder and harder to resist that silver sony devil.

    Oh yeah, anyone know how the new clie plays back mp3s, does it go right through the dragonball or does it have a seperate mp3 decompressor?
    I swear, she told me she was 16!

    They are supposedly using a DSP for the MP3 playback.

    You probably don't want to load an english Palm OS into the Clie. Sony has modified their Palm OS to support all of Clie's added features...putting a reg. Palm OS would be...unwise.

    so no matter what I can't get this pda

    Sony always knew how to design. That's a beautiful PDA, and, at 320x320 resolution, will probably be my next PDA.

    Any plans for a ClieCentral?

    Boy, do Palm and Handspring look bad with this one. To all the nay-sayers: It is possible to increase the resolution without having to **** around until 2002 with OS 5! I'm so pleased with Sony on this. Leave it to the underdog to do come up with real innovation. If they release it in the States I might just buy it. I figured changing the resolution to 320 x 320 would be the easiest way to increase resolution. Everything set to 160 x 160 will just have four pixels dedicated to rendering 1, and we'll leave it to developers to create apps that can take advantage of the better resolution probably Sony themselves for a while. HA!

    This is hilarious. I just love watching all of this unfold. First the Edge. Now the Sony CLIE PEG-N700C (320x320 LCD!). Next the Palm M-whatever.

    I live in Malaysia, and believe it or not I see very few Palm痴 around here. But I do see a lot of HP痴, Compaq痴, and Casio痴. (In Europe HP and Compaq痴 market share jumped from 18% to 31% last year).

    All this said, it will be interesting to see who痴 left standing in, oh about five years. I think it痴 safe to say that Psion won稚 be with us much longer.

    It looks and sounds great. That said:

    (1) They aren't selling it here, at least not yet, and

    (2) I seem to recall that when the original CLIE came out, everyone was predicting Sony would eat Handspring's lunch. Hasn't happened, obviously - in fact, I'd go so far as to say the current CLIE kind of sucks. I've played with one at my local CompUSA, and was very unimpressed - although I confess to digging the jog dial.

    By the time they get around to selling the thing over here, I'm willing to bet Palm and Handspring will have more or less matched it feature-wise.

    One other point - I read on Reuters that the new Sony does not really support MP3s, but some proprietary Sony music format. To quote: "Sony's PDA, however, plays audio files in the ATRAC 3 format it developed, rather than the widely used MP3 digital audio compression format." Not really surprising I guess, given the fact that Sony is a big music distributor.

    Not to mention if Sony repeats history there will be no mac support. Just out of curiosity, how hard is it to ship the devices to America and add a page to their website? If nothing else I hope Sony's innovations slap some sense into Palm and Handspring and get the ball rolling on real features. Keep a low-end device that services as a pda, but be willing to do something with higher-end devices besides changing the packaging.
