Modem also

Is there a modem included so you can surf the internet in your house wirelessly?

If not, I would rather just carry a wireless phone.

No kidding, what is the point of this gizmo? It will probably cost an arm and a leg, and for what?

The cordless phone I have works just fine. Even if it does have a modem, I'd rather sit down at my desktop with a real screen.

To me, this device highlights the springboard mania that we are about to be subjected to. Many of these devices are just expensive gizmos in my opinion.

So I buy this phone for a visor, my roommate makes a call and I need to go somewhere. I make them hang up so I can take my visor with me? And then my roommate has to use a regular phone anyway.

I just don't see the point.

What about us with III's

I have noticed the past couple of days that Palm III's are being
left behind in the accessories market. Cant use OmniSky, can't
use, can use GoAmerica but can only get a used
wireless modem. It seems all the cools stuff is comming out for the
Palm V's and the Visors, whats up..
