    I think you'll be pulling a Rip Van Winkle on this one, sir.

    What's with this nano-keyboard?

    I can barely understand a small numeric keypad for a phone, but small keyboards reek, and this is even smaller that the reeking small keyboard on my current admittedly terrible phone. Palm still hasn't got their eye on the ball--they need to simplify and quit trying to do non-PDA non-phone things on their devices.

    When my ancient Clie started misbehaving earlier this year I tried replacing both my phone and PDA with a single device. Bleah. The Treo was too kludgy and the N73 was pathetic as a PDA and the synch was awful. So I went back to a phone phone (with teeny camera) and a Palm. They really need to solve the form-factor problem. I'd have thought they'd try an all-touch phone years ago but now apple have beaten them to it ... on the other hand now might be a good time to be a follower? (I believe the TX already does everything the iTouch does and more).
