Palm to go Linux
I was a long time TREO user, now switched to T-Mobile DASH (windows mobile).
- much, much, better form factor
I thought I'd miss the touch screen in Treo, so far I haven't. Only thing I miss is the ability to natively sync (calendar, contacts) in Linux; I have a windows machine for this - not ideal but works
After using my DASH for a few weeks, Treo feels like a BRICK. Also PALM put off doing a real WIFI mostly bowing to the pressures of phone companies.
Palm should get in gear and start innovating in hardware front, as opposed to slapping on different OSes on top of the same old phone.
I have waited for a better form factor Treo from 650. And after seeing not-so-exciting 680 and 700, I have moved on.
To me this 'palm linux announcement' just feels like the last ditch effort to appeal to 'developer community'.
