PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Access has released screenshots of its Access Linux Program (or ALP), a successor to PalmOS based on Linux, with the ability to run legacy PalmOS applications (not to be confused with Palm's own attempt at building a new PalmOS, also based on Linux).

that may be true, but like it or not the iphone (like the ipod before it) have put touch interfaces in the radar of joe average. so in a sense, its become the new baseline that one will compare everything to, even if there where similar devices before it.

In USA, maybe. In Europe SonyEricsson UIQ-based smartphones are common even for the average Joe, so touchscreen interface is nothing new here.

the number of people waiting for an iphone in europe will diminish faster than OS/2 warp users if they dont get 3G.

mobile tech in europe and asian regions is far more advanced and in the hands of more average joes than in the US.

Most people here wont pay over 200 if it doesn't have a reasonably fast network connection (not including wifi) why would they be prepared to pay 500? (and yes, even fanbois have a limit)
