Nice size

though I don't see how it would fare well against the current and upcoming competition.

These smartphones are still a tiny market. The Treo 600 and the sumsung clamshell models are possibly the only ones that will attract non-PDA users since they look like regular phones.

The lack of a keyboard is a major let down.

if it only had SD expansion card I'd sell my TG50 with 512MB ms pro in a minute and stick with this eventhough it only palm os 4 system
the size MATTERS!
it would be the smallest colour palm powered handheld :-)
i wouldn't mind the low res screen either
