this is a sad story for a smartphone giant whose products have influenced the entire pda industry. i would like to see palm keep afloat and have their products succeed. it seems however that despite their development of a groundbreaking OS and a very sleekly packaged product, poor marketing decisions and a late submission in the new-gen pda class has taken its toll on the company. palm you idiots.... you should have marketed this differently. people buy cool, NOT functional. this whole palm saga saddens me.
