The media reports I've come across indicate that always-on internet connectivity, a "Blackberry killer," is the true next step, as far as product releases from Palm and Handspring are concerned. Palm is slated to release an i-mode handheld this year, but there's been nothing specific about the technology behind Handspring's wireless devices, also expected to be released this year. Of course, we all want to color Edge, but I haven't come across an article yet that comes close to substantiating that hope.

If the wireless device rumor is true, I just hope that one of those devices is an always-on wireless springboard like a GPRS VisorPhone.
