WOW, that's a LOT of stuff to cram in there.

I am amazed. Support for all this--"TI's TCS3500 solution and reference design supports all leading mobile operating systems including Symbian OS, Microsoft's Windows Mobile, Linux and Palmsource, as well as Nokia's Series 60 terminal software platform. The TCS3500 solution also supports multiple third-party Java platforms allowing the design of true next-generation Java phones."

Plus 2 MP camera and all the rest. Is this going to be the size of last year's Wanda reference design or laptop sized?

TI has really surprised me. I have expect Intel to just come into the PDA arena and stomp on everyone. After all Intel has all the money and processor design talent that any company could possibly want. Yet, TI's experience in the phone chip market and some real guts have given TI some big wins over Intel in design. Word is that HPs top new phone model will sport a TI chip and the old Jornada phone PPC was arguably far ahead of any phone out there when HP and Dell merged, killing it. (hope I have that right) Stunning work TI.

This chipset + palm OS6 + PalmOne resources = new Treo?

Would be a mighty nice communicator recipe.
