The 73 has a 320x480 screen!

Frenchie @ 3/28/2005 1:19:42 PM # Q
Whoa, that is one nice looking handheld. It is good to know P1 is rolling out the hvga screens. I might actually *consider* the 73 as a good handheld to upgrade to.

The world will end in 2006. Just as it was predicted in the bible along with the release of Microsoft Longhorn.... :p

Did PalmOne switch the logo on the TE2? Or does it mean that the FCC photo is a hoax? I'm really confused on the TE2 photo. Could anyone clarify this?

After seeing the pictures on the Pocket Solution website. The only real answer may be palmOne switched the logo. The accessories page also shows that the 73 and the TE2 use the Athena connector. This actually looks like a good lineup for the summer!

Photoshoped jobs. Just enough to get an idea. No real means to tell if they are real or not because there is no accessory that they sell that will tell you (lest they say screen protectors).

Also, these appeared quite a while ago on quite a few forums. Rehashed images..tisk tisk tisk.

The FCC pics are real. These, however, probably aren't. Look at the bottom left of the Zire 73 screen: the graffiti area was obviously digitally removed.

This smells photoshop work

There's no way that palmone ships a handheld with a Palm logo. And I doubt that they ship another handheld with that deplorable coating. My guess is that we will see the FCC T|E and a QVGA Zire 72s (the silver edition) pretty soon.

These are not real photos, but mockups. Maybe a "73" has HVGA, but never will the "E2" have a Palm Logo on front, The agreement is "Palm Powered" on various devices. "Palm" is non-existant as a PDA maker.

The coating is actually very nice for the 30 days that it stays attached. The 73 ad shows the header with a silkscreen area. Obviously they are photoshopped images and for some reason I fear P1 will stick the "73" with yet another square screen.
Let's see now, the iPaq had ful screen in .... 1932?

also...if you look at the 73 hard case, you can see that its not really virtual grafitti. or they just forgot to edit it out

opps...sorry
didnt see that

Sorry about posting too soon. My jump for joy was too great. They are photoshopped. If you look at the hardcase in the listings area you can see the Zire 72 silkscreen. The Zire 73 picture also looks kind of cartoonish.

photoshop but a good markup either

oneself @ 3/28/2005 3:04:36 PM # Q
This one is very rough photoshop, but do you feel, how people want big screen Zire's? This would be very useful product - because all PPC VGA highend's are heavy like bricks yet.

For sure PalmOne people feel it. In my opinion - there are 2 ways -

1. they release big screen and wifi products along with present cheap range
2. or they fail to get good technology and continue release square screen handhelds. and keep falling=(
----

another thing is, that one company actually makes all successful PPCs (HP, Qtek, XGA, MDA etc) and Palms at the moment - HTC. am I wrong, or this is competition inside one company? =)

The two best VGA PocketPCs, the Axim X50v and the Loox 720, weigh less than the Treo 650, and are thinner than the Zire 72.

>>>and are thinner than the Zire 72.

You need to put some more salt in p1's wounds: Those two PPCs also offer TWO SLOTS (SD *and* CF)!

RE: photoshop but a good markup either
oneself @ 3/28/2005 4:10:38 PM # Q
Yes, but 136g and 170g is a big difference for Zire72. Phone and keyboard make same difference for Treo 650.

Actually until CF and SD slots are together only in High End PPC - there is good space to make a popular smaller product without CF and with 320x480.

Most successful products always count on medium price and high value, not on "high specs no matter what".

By the way:

Does anyone know the size of T5 screen? Or no one is interested?=)
