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.

Well, there were a few things many people hated about the T5, mainly the slab-like form factor as opposed to its predecessors' signature slide out design and held-back performance. I personally loved the thin slab thing and didn't mind the slightly reduced snappiness in exchange for better reliability (thanks to the use of flash memory for internal storage).

The T/X was released after the Lifedrive but, despite its improved actual performance compared to the T5 and Lifedrive, it came out too late.

All my Palms are still alive and well, by the way... I replaced my T5's soldered battery with a new one a few years ago, and it still provides around 5.5 hours worth of juice, at least last time I checked.
