The Palm folks have announced that they will be building machines using their own homebrewed version of Linux with Palm OS 5 compatibility, by the end of the year. Good thing I didn’t buy a T|X this winter, eh? What seems to be missing from all commentary is the question of non-Treo Palm machines. I’m one of those people who have no desire nor need for a cell phone. Since my Clie has a battery that is now only capable of holding a charge for a few minutes, is my only choice for handheld geekery going to be a UMPC? I hope not.
