My sources tell me that Palm has already tested this exact chip on the bench and will bring it to market probably in early calendar 07'. The Treo team has been doing final testing on their in-house solution which cripples the WiFi side of the chip. No use depleting a perfectly good battery with WiFi.

e-motion will help with the power issue. The access to power via car, solar, pedal to the medal (bicycle) and other mobile choices will offer more solution to the power issue.

If WiFi is the Broadband and bluetooth short range working together with the choice in disable the WiFi/BT (current choice) then battery life can/will be enhanced in stand by mode.

Some customers may want to choose separate chip sets, depending on application.

The question addressed now is where will we get all the energy if all people become e-tellurians? Solar works, pedal power works, these and many more choices will enhance the life time of fossil fuels and enhance advanced economies too.

:-(lol) i know a Little off topic.

Maybe we could filter the Natural Gas from all of your flatulent posts and channel it into a gas pipeline for the glory(hole) of a we-com solution. I'm already heating my house with some of your August 22 posts:

Well that is quite an idea. Perhaps you just invented a toilet with sustainability qualities - complete regeneration of all energy no waste. Bio diesel will never smell the same.

I have to agree with TVoR on this one: don't ever change, e-t!

Thanks

The reality of evolution is that e-t will change to we-t as a choice. My attempt at humour to defuse anger or add to a day will never change.

Choices and consequences

Peace,
