Though not due out until next year, Handspring's cell phone/PDA is now official. Unfortunately, the two Treo models won't quite make the holiday buying season, but they do signal an important trend in the Palm vs PocketPC world.
As this article at the Wall Street Journal's personal technology site points out, Microsoft seems bent on stuffing an entire PC into your pocket. PalmOS-based manufacturers, however, seem to be trying to retain a smaller form factor, better battery life, and are moving towards wireless communications rather than multimedia. Personally, the Palm route seems to make a lot more sense, especially since it allows for low end models that can capture a much broader market segment.
Then again, there's something to be said for a PDA that can run Quake.
