That's beyond. Palm has always been on the radar...

    I wouldn't buy Palm. That's a dead deal if I ever saw one. Just look at the stock and where it's headed. It's not even a good OS for a PDA anyway. Why would Apple waste it's time with that?

    Palm OS is a good PDA OS - it is small footprint, the GUI is strong, hardware integration is strong, however, it is limited and it is not what Apple wants at this point.

    Plus you also get the added bonus of Be. All the Be technologies that were good get merged with OSX, and we get a PDA that works with OSX better than any other PDA/OS has before...

    I agree with Bogie. Palm makes some great stuff. They market it right. Now they can't improve on it, and people want more...apparently they've run into a brick wall at Palm. Personally, I don't think a PDA should ever cost more than about $300, because once you get into the realm of $600+ PocketPCs it's silly. Palm needs to work on more features without just casually updating the specs every once in awhile. Sony makes a much better PDA IMHO...thin, sexy, love the jog dial, good screens, and MP3 capabilities.
