Nice, so Garmin is still supporting PalmOS. Where's the successor to the flagship: iQue3600, then?

Seems like they've got a better GUI for the GPS app.

Something strange, though. It is said to have a microSD slot, but why did the package contain a transflash card? Also, a handheld isn't as cramped as a phone, why not just use the standard SD, which is cheeper and easier to find?

I'm pretty sure that transflash and microSD are the same thing.

Agreed. Why 320x320 on such a large device. Why microSD? Very weird if you ask me.

And you posted the wrong processor, it is: Bravo 2.0 200 MHz with built-in GPS correlation not ARM 9 200 MHz with built-in GPS correlator

They might as well have used XD. The only difference is that XD isn't usable in phones.

Why in the world would any manufacturer use a "standard" like microSD, XD, or even MS Duo? I wonder when they're going to come out with a nanoCF.

edit: microSD is the new title for Sandisk's transflash technology.
