Thumbpad for Palm Tungsten Series

My good ol' T|T3 is my fourth PDA and thusfar one of my favorites. Why not my favorite, you ask? I remember back when I had my Palm V and purchased a thumbpad for it - it was the single greatest accessory ever! Since then I haven't found any company, even Targus, that made one for later Palms. What's up with that? With a thumbpad you can stick it in your pocket and quickly snap it to the understide of your palm and tap out a quick message. Now all they have are bulky wireless keyboards. I would love to hear your opinions on the death of the thumbpad and whether or not you think they'll ever come back.

Thanks!

I love my wireless keyboard, but I admit there are often times where I've thought of a thumbpad. I've never used one, so I can't say a lot about it, but they certainly seem like a useful add-on and something that would be great to have as an option.
