So, what cool stuff are you guys drooling over? I like the Vaio P - as I stated in the Netbook thread. This new Palm phone seems pretty snazzy too. What else? OLED's...more netbooks...Just because the economy's in the tank, doesn't mean we can't drool.

Wow. Palm have really pulled it back from the brink there, haven't they? I'd love to see one, but this is the first "iPhone killer" that's come out that looks like it stands a chance.

Good work, Palm.

Yeah, maybe I'll think twice about getting an iPhone.

Just wanted to post a link to a Vaio P story.

Wow, that's a nice device. If I hadn't already moved my life over to Windows Mobile I'd really consider it. It needs to go over to AT&T to for me because I'm not going to be changing carriers either.

Overall the article certainly reads the praises of this new device. It sure would be nice for Palm to survive. I've got a little bit of love for them still from all my years using Palm Pilots.

Good work, Palm.
Jon Rubinstein just showed that a lot of what what made Apple great in the past decade probably had a lot more to do with him than anyone realized.

The Palm announcement was very incredible.... it's the first innovative response to the iPhone and the first that is truly well thought out and well rounded.

I would prefer if they lost the slide out keyboard though. Otherwise, very impressive, and sure to be on more carriers than the iPhone following its initial release.

...in the US, apparently so. But they are planning a GSM version for "other markets."

Good to see a competitor that's more than "me too!" Hopefully the Nokia Tube will be good too.

On initial release. Not sure if it is an multiyear exclusive... the reports made it seem like it was just a launch exclusive.

Just looked it up, it appears to be a six month launch exclusive, in the US.
