There any rumors of a TG series PDA but without that annoying keyboard on it? I Love OS5, but dont want that silly keyboard, and am not a Tungsten fan (my NX60 is holding me over! :) )

Well, the TG50's keyboard is very nice. If you can hold out for a Hi-Res+ screen like on your NX60 just wait a while. I think that one will come out either in August or September so the TG50 has a good five month lifespan.

I agree. I think an OS5 tablet clie with vg is inevitable.

Don't expect to see a VG T-series until the following has happened:
1) The current NX series is discontinued.
2) The next NX offers a brand new extremely important feature (besides what it already has today). This needs to happen because a $399 VG T-series would cannibalize its sales performance otherwise.
3) NZ90's price will have to drop to today's NX70V pricing ($600). This needs to happen for the same reason as above. The NZ90 already has compelling reasons for its price premium (2MP cam); all that needs to be done is to close the gap a bit.
Once these things happen, Sony will be comfortable with releasing a VG T-series. I'd say by Fall or late Summer.

fall or late summer of 2003? that's what i think, except i think it is more the marketing reasons than because of the NZ/NX series. i agree that the NX series will have to be discontinued first, however, because it isn't Sony's style to have that many options on the market at one time.
i will make a prediction: the TG50 and it's Hi-Res+ counterpart will most likely pair up as the SJ22 and NX/NZ series are. this way, Sony will have three price ranges and two options in each-- six handhelds on the market in all.
