Personally, I like the look of it. I like that dark gun-metal color, and the design, while not a breath-taker, isn't bad.

That doesn't erase all the negatives about what you get for the price, though.

Interesting look at that Athena connector. Doesn't seem to be a regular mini-USB connector. Sort of a double thing, likely power and data separated, but why not use a standard mini-USB?

Supposedly they brought out the audio and I'm assuming the serial signals out as well as USB.

I guess this is so the pda can drive speakers through the cradle. (Not sure if this is a standard cradle or a specialized one.)

Ah, and this would be the cradle that doesn't even come with a $400 PDA? Nice, palmOne.

Compare the 4th and 6th picture. The mini-usb appears to be able to connect directly to the T5 and through the "double thing".

Actually, that link point to Palmislife.com which is a Taiwan Palm site. Thai User Group only finds the link.

I wonder why most people don't like TE like design. Isn't it beautiful? But it seems to be larger than TE. It would be a nice one if it comes without palmone's quality problems. I hope palmone would release os6 ROM upgrade we expected.

Cradles are, sadly, becoming optional. Sony didn't include one with the TH-55, and truth be told, I don't miss it because I sync over Wi-Fi instead of with the cable. I can't say that PalmOne is significantly out of line here.

Thanks for clarifying that. TPUG also states that in their site. I went to Palmislife but couldn't find the original post... anyway, their watermark is all over the pics at TPUG.

What do you suppose those graphs are saying? The one looks like battery lenght of charge. Does that indicate only an hour and ten minutes difference? If so I would hardly call that a big improvement.

You are talking about a larger battery that is offset by a slightly faster processor and more RAM. It is an improvement, not a big one but one nonetheless. From just that alone, it should be a good day's better when only doing moderate usage. For those with unlimited phone data plans or heavy doc editing and music use, you may get just a little bit better than the T3. But what else would you expect, it is not like they are using fuel cells or OLED displays.

Think about no cradle like this:
P1 is advertising the Drive mode, therefore carrying a PDA and cradle to and from everyplace would be silly. They sell it without the cradle and emphaize mobility. Now, they could have had a cradle, and the cable that would plug into it. That would be good, but would kill some of those important accessory funds.

Is $400 too much for no cradle for a device whose PR is mobility anywhere? Nope. For us who are used to getting cradles and then buying cables, which are usually $10 cheaper than the cradle, is it? Yup. But when P1 is wanting to pull a profit, those users lose out on that end.
