Rumors of a New Palm Device

Surfing around my normal Palm/gadget sites today (MobileRead, PalmAddicts, MyPalmLife, 1src, etc.), the news seems to suggest that a new Palm device, either the Palm Tungsten T6 or Tungsten 2005, will be released at the end of April! Granted, this is all rumor and speculation. I have my serious doubts if it will happen, but if it did...well, it'd be downright gorgeous.

By the specifications, it seems like an incredible PDA (certainly a step up from the T5 which looks nice but isn't exactly my cup of tea...which is why I've stuck with my T|C for so long). Of course, there will be the obligatory "wait time" for developers to modify their applications (and make new ones!) that will work on the OS 6 (Cobalt) platform, which might be a little frustrating for some users. But overall, these specs look downright sexy! Guess we'll have to wait and see what comes...

T6/T2005 Specifications (RUMOR!)
* OS 6 (with scalable fonts)
* Bluetooth
* Wavelan
* 1 GB Flash
* 3 Megapixel Cam
* New connector (ethernet included)
* VGA resolution 640 x 480
* Graffiti 2 plus (with voice commands)
* Interface to iTunes (Apple iPod)
* The device is maximum 200 grams
* Automatic software update over internet
* Compatibility mode for pocket Windows is built in
* Initial price is around $400
* Launch date approx end of April

Thats a good summary. Good to see another person in the DC Metro area as well; I am in Largo-PG County, at least while I am working. Keep palming and be blessed.

The software industry is one of the world's fastest growing industries
with a net worth of hundreds of billions of dollars.

A lot of people have already made their personal fortunes from this
rapidly growing industry.

All this means that it's now the perfect time for you to start your
own software business.

You've just discovered the secret source for a complete range of
ready-made software tools, all of which can be private labeled with
your own details and then sold to generate a lucrative income.

Best Of Success
