I don't think this is Photoshop work. Actually, this would be a really nice device to have!

Definitely, especially if they got the wi-fi/bt combo finally! The price point is pretty darn good too. I may need to get rid of my T3.

Thumbs up Good price

I agree that it's a good price for the feature set. It won't make me switch back to Palm, but it's definitely a model that will keep existing users on the Palm side. I doubt it will have a camera, though. (The leaked photos don't show one, but that device might be an early prototype.)

Now let's just hope the device is relatively stable right at its release. I think most issues with NVFS have been worked out since the Tungsten E|2.
