New Palm, RIM phones will duel this fall
Prepare for a next-generation smartphone duel this fall: Palm is prepping two new Treo models for October, while Research In Motion has a new BlackBerry due in November, according to leaked documents provided to Engadget Mobile. The new "BlackBerry Stealth" looks similar to RIM's 7130C model, and Engadget dings it for lacking a built-in camera and support for high-speed 3G networks. The Palm Infocenter blog is more excited about the Palm models, noting that the two new smartphones round out Palm's promise to release four new models this year, including the earlier Treo 700w and 700p. The larger Treo Lennon will run Windows Mobile, support 3G networks, and includes BlackBerry-like software that pushes emails to the device. The smaller Treo Nitro runs the Palm OS, and could be priced under $300, according to Palm Infocenter.
Which would you buy -- RIM's latest, or one of Palm's upcoming models?
I prefer the model that just came out (700p) by palm running PALM OS. Internet, TV, streaming, phone, camera,organizer,works as modem,e-mail, calculator, alarm clock and more.
I've been waiting years now for a suitable Palm replacement for my Palm flip phone - the Samsung i500. I'll continue to wait until phone makers get the idea...
Do I want a BMW 5 series or Ford Taurus with a state of the art navigation system...I'll stick with the tried a proven RIMM...Thanks for asking.
