  1. I am a Sprint user and am desparately waiting for a PDA phone that is small with a camera, color screen, and works like my Palm VII. This sounds like the phone I have been waiting for. Could you please send me information on this phone along with the estimated time that is will be before Sprint will put it on the market.

  2. Yes – let me get right on that.

    This is my personal site. Why don’t you contact Sprint yourself? I can’t tell you what their exact business plans are…

  3. I like this phone. Tell me where I can get one. Is it compatible with GSM. What service providers offer it?

  4. You’ll never become a pro internet site with a attitude like this, i won’t come back, Grow Up!

  5. Love it. It’s not GSM compatible (hardly any of the models in the U.S. are as far as I know). But, they will be.

    Regardless, you can get one for $300~ “fell off the back of a truck and found it’s way to ebay”.

    I got some pictures on it, and really like it. The only thing that sucks, is the lack of service that Sprint provides (rather lack thereof) when it comes to SMS.

    Other than that…. the form factor alone is worth this thing. Can’t stand bulky blackberrys. Furthermore, this model does not have a camera on it, an it only works Palm 4. You need to wait for the next generation for that crap, which according Samsung’s sites…isn’t too long away for Europeans…(we in the U.S. tho.. who knows).
