Will they still use Palm when they will step on Mars?

Would you want a blue screen on a red planet?

LOL, I admit thats a good one... I'm no rocket scientist but as far as my imagination goes, "I think" it may work! Anyone care to rebut that statement? *grin*

"Would you want a blue screen on a red planet?"

Wouldn't that be a more appropriate comment if they were asking about a Pocket PC?

Tungsten & cold

Did they have to do anything to protect them from the cold? I would think that the unprotected screen would freeze.

Me too. The screen would crack because it's going to be brittle in extreme conditions. Not to mention the vapour that is forming under the screen since it's reflective...

Looking at the picture, I think there were no protection installed for the T.

Got Palm? Don't keep it, flaunt it!

Just how "liquid" is an LCD? is that just a convenient tag, or is there enough liquid in it to freeze?

LCDs do contain liquid.. but it's not water. Different liquids freeze at different temperatures, you know.

Do they use solar batteries? Or something else?
