Sigh... Palm OS 5 vs. Pocket PC - Page 3

"Dammit, Aries 1B, I was pretty much decided on the iPaq, then you have to go and mention this. "
Sorry about that. I've played around with some high end iPaqs and they are niiiiiice (for Windows contraptions). They have graffiti and sub-Newton 1.0 handwriting recognition options ( or, just to get you used to your apparent future: sub-N!wton #>+ h_Ndwri%ing recogn***on OPTion!)

What I really want to hear about is any update to a rumor that 'Fryke' overheard ('from a source close to Avie') about Newton OS 3.0, or "Navi" being ready to dance...

Note that fryke's thread on MacOSX.com is nine months old (it dates from February 2002). Of course, hope springs eternal, so nine months mean nothing. Anyway, it's good to see a fellow Swissman in the Mac rumormonging business.

Hats off to the rumor spreading Swiss!

Ms. Belle, you may want to hold off on the purchase, see:

...right over in Future Hardware. I'll bet Fran's breathing heavily right now.


I installed Palm Desktop 4.0 on my Windows contraption at work today. Nice interface. I linked it to Outlook (instead of Palm Desktop). Email from my Windows contraption (which I cannot yet do from my ibook.) Not bad, not bad at all. Still...

Holding my Windows infected Palm m515 is like handling a container of some awful virus....

Belle, here is some info on the <a href="http://www.bargainpda.com/default.asp?newsID=993&showComments=true" target="_blank">Samsung Nexio</a>. This is the NEXIO S150 I believe. The S160 has a flip cover keyboard.

Wow, that looks like a nice display! No US release date, but probably some time next year.

I suspect 2003 may be quite interesting when it comes to palmtops.

Very nearly useable, now it just needs a 90% key pitch keyboard.

As long as the handwriting recognition is useable, no keyboard needed for me. I'm sure samsung will have an accessory keyboard for it soon.
