Wake me when someone releases hardware to run Cobalt...

Dude, wake up. The hardware has been around for some time.

Looks like they got these products to the market pretty quick after snatching up that Chinese company. I'm impressed.

1) These products were already in the market - the Chinese market, with both Chinese and English support. Bringing them out in the US /other markets wasn't a lot of work.

2) This is the interesting "other shoe" dropping from PalmSource. They now have two incompatible OS products (3 if you include Cobalt, which I'm not as there are no products with it yet). As they have committed to integration it will be interesting to see how they carry it out.

Ugh! Does any of this stuff run on Palm OS?

This article probably won't get much notice, but it doesn't look like any of this stuff runs under Palm OS.

This, IMHO, is not a good sign for us Palm OS fans. Why is PalmSource wasting their time with this stuff?

More B.S. for Wall Street

Gekko @ 2/16/2005 8:50:53 AM # Q

This is merely another attempt by Nagel et al to throw some more shiit against the wall so they can have one more B.S. story to tell Wall Street analysts and try to get/keep the stock price up so they can continue to milk everything to the last drop off the teat.

They have nothing real going on so the Investor Relations Dept. directed by Nagel comes up with these BS Press Releases so they can continue to tell some kind of story rather than everyone see they are STAGNANT. I repeat STAGNANT. Nobody wants Cobalt, nobody will want PalmLinux, and nobody wants any of this crap. It's all SMOKE AND MIRRORS.

Nagel's Motto: "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with BULLSHIIT!!!"

So where does that leave YOU? When that T3 breaks, what then? You realize that every forthcoming p1 device is not only going to have that T5 "RAM" arrangement, but that garish OKey interface too!

Where does that leave me? If my T3 breaks, I will try to find a new one somewhere - retail, P1, or a used one - ebay (in that order). I will NOT buy any Palm device with NVFS. NVFS is the work of SATAN! Perhaps P1 may put out a new T6/T7 with *REGULAR* RAM? If so, that would be doable - but they're ain't no way I'm dealing with NVFS - no way. I really do think that the T3 was the high water mark in the P1 era.

BUT - Another option is to see what PPC 2005 offers (coming March 2005?). Perhaps MSFT has cleaned up the OS and polished it up. If they have, I may pull the trigger on a Dell Axim VGA/WIFI.

So I'm basically playing it by ear.

Et tu?
