Geez, that phone looks like it's needed to be in the US Store shelves.Powered by Palm OS since March 2002
I thought there was a rumour of a GSPDA phone shipping with Vapourware for Palm OS (sorry, Cobalt) towards the end of the year...
The primary focus of this week's PalmSource Developer Conference is to unveil Palm OS Cobalt to the world. Mr. Nagel called it "the most important piece of technology that we've ever created."
PalmSource re-wrote 80% of the Palm OS to create Cobalt. It brings to the operating system features it needs to remain competitive, including full multitasking ability, native ARM applications, and other high-end features.
An overview of the features of Palm OS Cobalt is available in this article, and one showing PalmSource's future plans for it is in this one.
The question on everyone's lips at the PalmSource Conference is when the first devices running Cobalt will be available. Mr. Nagel and the rest of the PalmSource executives who have spoken have declined to say anything about this, pointing out that this is really up to the licensees. Larry Slotnick, the company's Chief Product Officer, would only say that devices running Palm OS Cobalt are "coming, compelling, and many."
Mr. Nagel said he expects to see Cobalt running on a wide variety of devices, including ones with large, high-resolution screens like tablets and e-readers. He also mentioned the possibility of Cobalt-powered digital video players.
Time will tell, but I for one am not putting a lot of hope in what has up to now become, vaporware.

Sharp's Zaurus has also been quite successful in Japan and is a nifty device. The same Linux-based PDA platform is now also shipping on Archos.
