Small but beautiful :) - I have one from O2 (UK) on trial at the
moment; just seems to work really well, and the latest software (as of
weekend just gone) makes other phone interfaces look a little tired.
And the parallel operation of applications makes the iPhone look a bit
of joke ;). Highly recommend having a look.

And the homebrew applications is encouraged beyond anything I would
have expected. I've been at a promo event and had product managers for
Palm tell me about solutions that use Homebrew (and tell me why those
apps were not in the official store).
