Comments on: Upcoming Windows Mobile Palm Rumor Analysis

The second half of 2008 has long been considered a very uncertain period of transition for Palm. The embattled handheld maker will presumably be attempting to tread water on the residual sales of the popular Centro smartphone alongside a handful of new Windows Mobile-powered devices, all while presumably prepping the Nova OS for release sometime in 2009. What exactly Palm's upcoming Windows Mobile device lineup looks like remains the most pressing question facing the Palm faithful as we kick off the beginning of the summer months with just a small handful of rumors to contend with.

As usual, all of the information presented here combines a great deal of speculation based largely on Palm's past releases plus a handful of leaked images, specification and online chatter. Of course, we've had a few leaked images, roadmaps, and specs over the past year to go on as well. All of the content of this article is essentially speculation and conjecture based on Palm's traditional device history and should in no way be interpreted as an actual Palm release schedule.

Faithful?

Is there such a thing as "Palm faithful" nowadays?

Not on this site. Try Brighthand or PalmAddicts.

We (I) remind me of fishing for Crappie in Weiss Lake, AL last weekend. Those minnows started sucking air and got more and more sparse as the day went on. Faithful? I don't think so. More like a few remaining minnows desperately clinging to the remaining oxygen (Palm OS devices), while seeing the probable end, but hoping for a miracle. Something like that maybe?!?

C'mon little fat 680, can you make it another year? Looks like at that point it will be breakthrough or sell the furniture. I'm afraid to say which is more likely.

I'm still faithful to my Palm TX running Palm OS. It's just too bad Palm isn't faithful to any Palm OS. Yippee more Windows Mobile devices, the world just can't have enough of these. Is it really a Palm when they technically don't make the hardware and the don't make the software? The only thing that's truly Palm on these devices is the shape and the sticker. If you want to be faithful to a sticker then be my guest.

PDA's Past and Present:
Palm TX (Number 2)
Palm - IIIxe, Vx, M500, M505, Tungsten T, TX
Handspring - Edge, Platinum, Deluxe
Sony - SJ22, UX50
Casio-EM500
Apple - MP110, MP2000, MP2100

Don't we all really just come here out of some misguided sense of hope? We have a want and a need, and we just keep stopping by to either:
1) Spew venom about being abondoned
2) Keep hoping that there will be some rumor or spy shot of that next Palm device that is a worthy successor to the POS devices of 3 years ago?

I was a Palm user from the U.S. Robotics Pilot 1000 I bought in June of '96 to last year when I stopped using my T3/T610 and bought a Nokia e61.
I still come here because my ideal device would be a modern Palm smartphone, and I hope it is created some day.
The Nokia has a modern OS (doesn't crash) but is weak on the sync side and doesn't support any PIM except Outlook.
I also remember the heyday of the Palm developer community and would like to have a device with that kind of support again. Maybe I'll end up with an Andriod phone.
