Has anyone heard the latest MP3 player? I heard it in Vegas and it sounded great. Is this the real deal??

I've tried the MP3 player and the sound quality is quite good. I was wondering if the PalmOS would have the ability to store prc or pda files on the player's memory card (or even run applications directly from the card), but the Shinei rep I spoke to couldn't confirm this at the time...The only disadvantage to using this pda/mp3 player combo is that the entire unit would end up being twice the thickness of a normal m100.

Cool... But what about...

Sure sounds good. But what about the last bastion of the III series, the IIIc? I suppose you could see it quite clearly which direction Palm is heading for.

Would you believe a rumour flying around that there will be an M9xx series? Apparently this is the one that introduces Palms with the ARM chops.

I have my faith in Palm that they ARE listening to whats being said in forums like this one...

"The only constant in life is death..."

what about the III Range

i am presently using the IBMC3 Workpad,which is basically a Palm V.Although it is supposedly the top of the linemodel that Palm can offer,thereare no upgradesor add-ons fr it like an mp3 playeror something like that.Personally,i am waiting for a hardware add-on that can play MP3s.I hope that Palm hears this.
