Will T-Mobile USA finally carry another Palm OS device?

Will T-Mobile USA finally carry another Palm OS device?

I enjoyed the short time I spent with the Palm Cento from Sprint and have actually recommended it to a few people who fit the profile for the device. These people actually LOVE the device and are pleased I told them about this compact smartphone. There is a GSM version available now from Vodafone in Europe and rumors of a GSM version eventually coming to the U.S. Most rumors had the device coming to AT&T in the U.S., but now Engadget Mobile has posted a photo of a Centro with the T-Mobile logo on it so we may see it from T-Mobile as well.

MWC08: Sony Ericsson announces two new UIQ smartphones

MWC08: Sony Ericsson announces two new UIQ smartphones

Sony Ericsson was busy making announcements at Mobile World Congress yesterday and two new smartphones that were announced almost didn't catch my attention because their model numbers are almost the same as a couple of Cybershot phones they announced.. The upcoming SE C700 and C900 Cybershot phones are actually full UIQ smartphones, but I initially had them confused with the two SE C702 and C902 Cybershot camera phones also announced yesterday. I found out from reading All About Symbian that these other two were actually UIQ devices.

The Palm Foleo: the beginning and end of the mobile companion category

The Palm Foleo: the beginning and end of the mobile companion category

The Palm Foleo is taking a lot of heat in the press right now and after taking some time to think about it some more I tend to agree that there really isn't a place for the device between a smartphone and a PC. There is a simple solution to add a full size QWERTY keyboard that has been around for years and smartphones are so advanced today that there really isn't a need for more. Do you think there is a market for the Palm Foleo?
