Really? Palm? I looked at some and I think they use windows mobile as the
OS. I have a hard time buying anything with a widows based OS (HP has an
interesting GPS but it's windows based and I can't get passed that). They
are also expensive if you don't sign a contract and I won't. $400 or more
for most but I did see a 650 for about $250. Maybe I can find a used one.

So despite the windows OS these work with Linux, huh? Well, I just wish
Google or whomever would get busy on an open phone.

Thanks for the info.
