that's how i look at it.  my visor does a great job.  i couldn't ask for
anything more.  handspring going out of business really doesn't mean
much to me.  my visor still keeps track of my phone numbers, memos,
shopping lists, etc.

ooooooooo...... this is the first i've heard of it.  looks nice!

* it'll have a graffiti pad[1]
* it'll use palmOS
* voice quality will be good
* i can import my visor's palmOS data[1]

* LCD screen replaceable with screwdriver.  outstanding!
* at $200, the price looks good
* According to Danger, the agreement includes "all you can eat" data
  capabilities starting around $25 a month.  <-- can this be true?

* java on an arm... i have a feeling it's going to be suh-low.

if anyone gets one PLEASE post a review to vox!
