    Hey,

    Anyone heard of the possibility of Nextel introducing a Nextel/Palm
    combo phone in addition to the blackberry lineup? I currently have
    three devices (nextel phone, palm, blackberry pager) and would like
    only one. The blackberry model that palm offers looks nice but: a. I
    really like Palm's power and functionality; and B) blackberry won't
    sync with a Macintosh.

    I would think a Palm-based phone from Nextel with a QWERTY keyboard
    would be a big hit.

    Anyone hear anything? Is it "never going to happen" because of
    nextel's offering of blackberry items?

    Thanks,
    Damon

    Yep, although I hear it will probably be released late this year. One
    interesting thing I have heard- there may be a bluetooth phone on the market
    before then. Certainly not the same as a smartphone, but a nice thing to
    have available.

    Hmm ... but will any of these be Mac compatible? That is my real
    selling point. Trying to consolidate my three items into one. Just
    getting the phone and pager into one may be good enough -- I just
    didn't want them to release a new Palm Phone after I went and got the
    blackberry.

    I can only assume that Microsoft PDA's aren't mac compatible.
    Although: maybe they should be with the Office X software ... who
    knows?

    Feel secure with your Blackberry- no plans for a Palm Phone.

    I just bought an04 Acura TL which has Bluetooth capability...After 4
    contacts in to Nextel & 1 directly to Motorolla...Nextel has
    unofficially indicated that they will indeed be releasing some
    Bluetooth phones, but no date was available.

    When you ask Nextel if they have any phones that are Bluetooth capable
    (built in)....they answer with a list of all of the phones that will
    work with the JABRA Freespeak which is completely wrong & misleading!
    The $179 JABRA Freespeak has an external Bluetooth that plugs in to
    the phone and only provide Bluetooth functionality with the earpeice.

    Anyway...they say they will have some B-Tooth phones out, they just
    don't know when.

    that's what i heard as well! altho, there are no definites but you should look for it on the i930 even tho it wasn't on the presentation sheets (maybe on the i860, but i kinda doubt it).
    also the 930 may sync w/the mac by the time that it's released.

    You had posted a message to someone to be happy with their Blackberry as
    Nextel has no Palm Phones planned, that's all.

    Smartphone is not a Palm phone- Palm phones run on the Palm OS, not
    Microsoft. Smartphones are a Micorsoft driven product. My statement
    stands- Nextel has no plans to offer a Palm phone.

    No problem- you had me believing that I done the same for a minute or two.
    No harm, no foul.
