Seeing as I am the first post, let me start by saying how much I LOVE MY PALM....

Ok, now down to it. Why are all of these companies releasing products for the Vx. While I have three Vxs, I have moved along witht he times and my primary device is my 505. Why have developers been so slow to develop add-ons for the 500 family, it does have the new universal connector after all so you wouldn't think it would be wasted development cycles.

Also anyone that would pay that much for this device is going to be the consumer that already has the top of the line Palm device.

Sheer numbers. There a many more Vx users out there than 505 owners like you and I. If the peripherals sell for the Vx, we should see them for the 505 sooner or later.

smaller mp3 player

There is a Springboard module which doesn't increase the form factor of your handspring at all. I'd say that qualifies as the "smallest mp3 player" for a palm device.

Plus the Saso can work independently. Can the mp3 player on the HS do that?

Yes, it can. Energyclip for soundsgood player.

Missing the point ...

I think many of you have missed the purpose of this device. It is primarily a digital voice recorder - that can use a PalmOS device as its interface. And as a bonus, it plays MP3s.

This device is not going head to head with the likes of the MiniJam, or a Rio, or a Sony ... it is up against devices like the Olympus DS-320, DS-3000, or DW-90 (or equivalent models from Sony, Philips, Hitachi, etc). These recorders get used in boardrooms across the world on a daily basis - and that is the market and pricetag this device is targetted, not the college student with the Visor Deluxe that wants to play back the latest bootleg.

can find a better one

With a same price, I think we can find a better one with similar features but more powerful...
