It looks to me like it has a lot of features for $299. I look at this as the value geek model. I, too, am sad about the state of the Palm OS. I am a Palm Developer! I think I will have to switch to another platform, and I really hate to switch to CE/PocketPC/Embedded Windoze. Maybe micro-java is the way to go!

Well, if you switched to the Pocket PCs.. you can always install handhelds.org on it ;) ... The Linux for PPC ;) . Also, I just bought the TX, it's a pretty good PDA, web pages on Blazer render better then IE does ;) ... I like and I hate palm... I see no point in things such as the "Palm Store" because all they sell is palm crap... If I want crap for my Palm, I goto a Palm BOOTH or Franklin Covey ;) ... I wonder if I'll be able to upgrade to the newer Palm OS when it comes out =/... It'll be like OS X. `Cept this time it's Palm OS + New Palm OS Interface + Linux instead of Mac OS 9 + New OS X Interface + FreeBSD. Haha, OS X isn't all that bad, but I still prefer me OBSD, FBSD, and Linux boxes. Anyway.. Why stop programming for Palm? Go Open Source! (if you don't already).
