Brighthand has some speculative information on Tungsten T6, Zire 73 and the Tungsten-E|2 (wish). Elsewhere, InfosyncWorld is previewing the most powerful communicator to date, T-Mobile’s MDA-IV.
PalmOne Readies New Devices
2005-03-16 Wireless 9 Comments
I want the Linux devices… until then I am keeping my IPAQ .
I haven’t seen any wifi feature. I’ve missed it or there isn’t? I think it is important and with the SD card we lose some features.
It’s somewhat ironic that Eugenia’s E2 wish list is probably more legitimate than the T6 wish list that the other sites are publishing as rumour.
no more PALM for me after the BEOS fiasco.
they couldnt reuse/handle the power of the great BEOS.
um.. they never said the the beos/beia was going to be used in the palmos. some of the multimedia stuff, maybe.. they most likely wanted the developers and patents and the like.
I really don’t understand this Palm OS / Beos discussion. a PDA has to do only two things in my opinion. Manage my contacts and calendar…..
Palm OS 5 is doing a great job. If I want a hardcore multimedia device, I carry around my iBook.
I second that … i never understood why one would want hardcore multimedia on a PDA. I would rather have a good quality, sturdy product without bells and whistle but for a reasonable price … personally i think the Palm Tungsten E fits the bill.
The most important feature is Cobalt is a vector based GUI, imo. PalmOS 5 has no support for this, so any application which wants scalable fonts, or any kind of graphical objects, zoom or otherwise will have to implement it from scratch.
The multi-tasking will also be much better on Cobalt, with mp3 players, alarm clocks or other applications running in the background while you continue to work.
It’s not all bells and whistles. It something which Palm really, really needs to become modern again.
Also, that T6 list is a joke. Camera and iTunes on a business PDA? What stupid little kid thought that up?
I’m not drunk, I swear… I need to grammar and spell check my posts better. Sorry.
Even that system is already a year old. It’s about time PalmONE included it in their devices.
Everything else just doesn’t cut it.
