    It'd be hard to "kill" the blackberry without blackberry-like push support

    A new RAZR-like Motorola smartphone was leaked today. It looks really impressive, but it appears to run Windows Mobile on it. However, if this doesn't light an innovation fire under P1's ****, I don't know what will.

    Break out the Valtrex The Forum That Asks, "Are You Not Entertained?"

    Remember: "Anyone that thinks the Treo should just work right out of the box, shouldn't own a Treo..."

    Is it only up to that?

    One thing Moto has going for it is buzz, and that can't be underestimated. Look at Apple. They can make a crummy screenless mp3 player and people are all over it like Treo fans on a PPC supporter.

    Exactly. If Motorola can actually get this one out there (RIP MPx) and if it is stable platform, they will hype it and push it until it's the bees knees. That is what Motorola is good at.

    I think the Samsung 730 is a legit Treo killer. 7 months after the release of Treo 650, and countless vaperware dead bodies, there is finally a "Treo killa".

    It's now Palm's turn to one up the competition.

    Totally with you there. I was interested in the Razr until I got a chance to hold one and (try to) feel the keypad. I wouldn't see it as a selling point that they would translate that design to this device. They lose additional points for Windoze.

    Wow... so the news does get worse (not for Palm). But I do agree that with enhancements in smart phones and other PDA devices, maybe Palm will get off their porta-potty's and bring us a stable multi-tasking OS.

    bah... they probably based this on the same reference design as the HPaq model people have been trying to gush about elsewhere. Sure, they customized the keyboard a little... but no one plays in this space that doesn't drink the kool-aid MSFT puts out there.

    Maybe so, but I routinely tap the screen with my thumb in one-handed use. And for all but the smallest screen elements it works just fine. Fact is that if 5-way interfaces were the way of the future, your computer wouldn't have a mouse and you'd be using arrow keys all day long. For applications, a 5-way is a nice convenience but isn't a replacement for other interfaces.

    Funny... because as I read the first sentence my thought was "Yeah, like the RAZR". King of cool it may be, but king of usability it is not (IMHO).

    This one confused me. We want to chop the Treo in half. But we don't want to because it hurts functionality? Hmm. Actually I totally agree with the latter point... I find the Treo almost too small to hold in two hands for faster thumbing on the keyboard. A lot of people snubbed RIM for keeping the Blackberry's wide, but they forgot that it makes them easier to hold and type on.... you know, the reason we have keyboards?

    I think I'll wait to see a good speach recognition system before I worry about judging a device on whether it would be cool if we just had the voice recognition to go with it.
