Sprint, Palm's partner announced the release date, pricing information, and plans today, with Palm's official blog following soon after.

Even contacts and the address book requires an internet connection with Google for Android.


Um, no, not at all. It will sync your contacts to your Google account if have a network connection (and you have the Google contacts sync software installed on your device, which is actually not part of the base platform at all), but other than that it is just a local contacts database that doesn't require any network access at all.
