Haji To Shirei--What a Disgrace in Japanese.

Sprint is USA. Samsung is South Korea.Pat Horne; www.churchoflivingfaith.com
It's a shame that both P1 and Sprint feel compelled to put all of their eggs in the Treo 650 basket. It's a nice unit, sure, but NOT worth the $ and still has a number of glaring flaws that have not been rectified (No, a free 128mb SD card doesn't count!)
I wish Verizon could somehow deviate slightly from their stringent policy to at least get a few more smartphones out faster. I wonder if Samsung'll try to shop this one to Verizon?
My guess for why this decision REALLY happened is that Sprint doesn't want to invest a ton of $ into new handhsets until all of the details are worked out for migrating at least some of the Nextel users into the Sprint fold.
Also, I wonder if this a harbinger of a clamshell Treo to come later this year from P1?? Hmmmm.
Palmsource claims Samsung is working on Cobalt 6.1! This is the thing I don't really understand, if Samsung now produces a great PDA/Phone based on cobalt 6.1, they could steal Palmone’s business easily, so what are they waiting for? Why, as a palm OS licensee, hasn't Samsung taken Palm OS seriously considering it's huge customer base?
I played with the Samsung Palm flip phone (CDMA version)in Korea long before it came out here (this was years ago). There are many phones that Samsung makes that I'd love to see here. Unfortunately, making the phone we all want doesn't always work out in the end because of all the work that has to go on between the carrier (in this case Sprint) and manufacturer...
Cancelling Sprint account.
Leaving Palm OS.
Going Cingular most likely.
Going Windows SmartPhone 2003 OS.
Stupid moves but no other option is no other option.
I can not stand holding a tablet to my head to talk to, can not stand open face devices, can not stand thumb keyboards, and can not stand Treo design.
For me the only thing missing from the Samsung SPH-i550 is Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi but I can do without either one happily.Seize the moment!
