PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If you're a Palm fan, you might want to look away - or not. Chris Ziegler has written a fantastic article on the short rise and eventual demise of webOS, and with it, Palm. I'm generally not a fan of companies, but I have my exceptions - and Palm is one of them. Correction - Palm was one of them.

I payed less attention to the opinion noise at that time. What was wrong with the T5? The chassis shape, the hardware on board.. for lack only of a wifi radio I still maintain that it was the best Palm device done. The slide away input area maximized screen viewing space, no moving parts like the LifeDrive, no hardware downgrade like the T/X (was that the one between the T5 and lifedrive?). I held on to my T5 until it died forcing me to choose a replacement from the options of the time (all of which meant a downgrade from the T5 in some way).
