    Okay, I so need one of these. Right after ditching my TC. But it’s still missing two critical things. 1. A damn phone. 2. A keyboard. Nirvana for me? A Treo with bluetooth and wi-fi. Then AMB will be a happy person.

    Say it also has a camera. Then it would be the dream PDA.

    I’d really like to see the addition of a keyboard as well.. either a slider or a clip-on piece would be great. I love my T3, but find for email, you really do want a keyboard so you can just do more…

    These rumours are getting better and better – I have to get one of these!!

    Does it have a slider or not?

    802.11g? That seems fake. 450Mhz processor? Why not 624? Zire 72 uses 312Mhz, just like Dell’s lower end x30, so why doesn’t the T4 take advantage of doubling the clock speed to 624? That seems fake too. Also it makes more sense for the T4 to go to 128MB. People need to do a better job if they want to make a believable T4 rumour…

    Actually, according to Geek.com, the 802.11g PDA solution has been conquered recently. As for the CPU speed, I agree with Donald…the Xscale 2’s are 312 and 624, unless this is a new I.Mxl development or another Omap CPU, which I have heard of neither in the 450 Mhz arena. Here’s the link to the Geek.com story:

    I really need one of this
    eu quero um deste de qualquer jeito

    1100mAH battery?? OK if removable; otherwise only a minor improvement, unless-with multitasking, will opening up several items once and keeping them open save power??

    802.11g?? On a Palm I think that is a bit of a waste considering the processor isn’t even that fast.

    Make sure that SD slot is SDIO compatible and I’d still like to see a keyboard and phone to make this perfect.

    I am currently using a Treo as my main Palm and can’t live without the full integration.

    Nice ideas, but I do not believe them. Here is what would make a nice tablet PC:
    CPU type: AMD Athlon or Turion 64 processor running at a minimum of 3GHz
    Wireless: 802.11 a, b, g, or n and Bluetooth
    full QWERTY keyboard (at least six rows (you will see why below))
    Operating system: Windows XP professional Tablet PC Edition x64 (if it exists) (This is why the keyboard should be at least six rows) with eraser digitizer pen
    Hard drive capacity: At least 120GB
    Screen size: Large enough to support a maximum resolution of at least 1280 x 1024
    It should include a touch pad
    It should include a full copy of Office Professional 2003 or 2007
    It should also include a full copy of Virtual PC 2004 or 2007
    It should include Windows Live Messanger 8 and Internet Explorer 7
    It should include a double layer DVD-±RW drive
    It should have two speakers (one on the left and the right) with stereo sound
    It should have a card reader for at least SD cards
    Keyboard layout:
    Row 1:
    Escape
    F1 – F12
    Print Screen/System Requests
    Scroll Lock
    Pause/Break
    Row 2:
    Grave accent (`)/Tilde (~)

    So, I guess that I actually made a tablet PC, not a handheld PDA, oops! Here are the specs for the handheld version of that tablet PC.
    CPU type: Intel ® Pentium ® 4 Prescott processor running at a minimum of 3GHz
    Wireless: 802.11 a, b, g, or n and Bluetooth
    full QWERTY keyboard with at ast six rows and smaller keys than that of the full-sized tablet PC (you will see why below)
    Operating system: Windows XP professional Tablet PC Edition 2005 (This is why the keyboard should be at least six rows) with eraser digitizer pen
    Hard drive capacity: At least 120GB
    Screen size: Large enough to support a maximum resolution of at least 1280 x 1024
    It should include a full copy of Office Professional 2003
    It should also include a full copy of Virtual PC 2004
    It should include Windows Live Messanger 8 and Internet Explorer 7
    It should have two speakers (one on the left and the right) with stereo sound
    It should have a card reader for at least SD cards

    Oops! That ast on the handheld tablet PC was supposed to be least, not ast.

  18. 12/1/2006 at 11:59 pm

    You realize that this was written in 2004 about a Palm handheld and there’s no way to even do an UMPC with what you are suggesting.
