Mmm-okay, I reread a fourth time. He did say "a
handheld running Palm OS 5 that is capable of making phone calls."
I still don't think that implies the other two will run 4.x. But then again this is Palm.
For the record, I want:
wireless (but not necessarily voice)
-Mac compatibility (obviously)
-a processor faster than the Dragonball
The Treo 90 comes the closest short of the processor.

Actually, the Treo 90 misses on all three counts. Here's an email I got from Handspring regarding current and future Mac support:

What is your timeline for Mac OS X support for my Treo 90? Do you have a
firm date for the release of an OS X native palm desktop? Currently I'm
having to resort to virtual pc as my computer does not and will not have OS
9 on it. Thanks.
My Treo was returned last night. Handspring is no longer getting my money. Now I'm back to my newt, waiting for something from Apple...
