Yeah, Palm

If palm even thinks they can sell many 5x's (or 3's or 3x's, or 3se's for that matter) in light of the handspring Visor announcement, They're gonna be really surprised. Sure, the 5 will always have the status-symbol I-paid-more-than-you-so-I'm-better status that magizines like Hamakerschlemer and Sharper image live off (as well as certain auto makers), But as far as actaul useful cost effective technology goes, Palm's gonna have to either do better or accept their status as a software only company. I mean, Symbol and Handspring both offer more functionality than the Palms, and the IBM Palm clones look _much_ cooler in black as far as the corparate market goes.

and yes, I do own a IBM Workpad 20X

Great, I spend $450 on a Palm V w/2MB of memory and now they come out with a 8MB model. Isn't wonderful how hardware vendors always make you chase a moving target? Nothing like staging your product line to boost revenue, huh? Give us a break 3-Com!!!

I don't think it is true!

This move doesn't make any sense! Therefore I do not think it is true that Palm will release a Vx in October. At least not at that price. They know they need to compete with Handspring on this level now. They are not going to just release a more expensive item without anything comparable to the new Handspring features included in the device. Remember, the person that wrote that article didn't exactly have things straight when the original Palm V was introduced. She claimed that it would have a color display and 4MB of RAM.

Comfortable, Confident, & Complacent

3Com is suffering from the 3 C's: Comfortable, Confident, & Complacent. The devices may have the market share but 3Com had better make some serious improvements from a hardware standpoint and do it at an affordable price. I'll be impressed with a faster processor, more expandability, a color screen and keep it the size of a Palm V.
