What did we get? The Centro.
I think Palm was fixated on the idea that a smartphone needed a thumbboard for email replies and SMS. I know other Palm users who would really like a Treo with a 320x480 screen. It will be interesting to see how many manufacturers start coming out with phones that have neither thumbbaord nor keypad in response to the iPhone.

I'm waiting to see what Palm OS II (or whatever they call it) based on a Linux kernel will look like. I'm also curious to see if Palm decides to use it in something that isn't a smartphone.
