    PalmOS 5.x cannot run on the older Dragonball CPUs such as the i500 has.
    I don't know of a version of PalmOS appreciably newer than what the i500
    already runs that actually could run on the i500...

    ANyone have any word on when the next Palm Smartphone will be coming from
    Samsung? I just hate the Treo 650. Sprint's site has stopped selling the
    i500.

    Well the rumor is that Samsung has disbanded its Palm phone development team.
    And of course PalmSource (PalmOS) has been bought up by Access.
    And there is the Treo 700 running WM2005.

    And LG did sign on to PalmOS...

    So the best hope now is that Access won't destroy or inhibit PalmOS and
    that LG sees fit to develop a good PalmOS phone, AND (biggest and...)
    that the carriers will actually decide to adopt it (seeing as Sprint was
    the one that killed the i550 (and ultimate Samsung's PalmOS line), not
    Samsung itself..., just as VZW killed the i640/i645).

    Thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to stick with my i500 as long as I
    can.

    Samsung A900 Coming to Sprint

    Today, 3:39 PM source: FCC

    The FCC today approved the Samsung A900, an ultra-thin clamshell CDMA phone
    for the U.S. based on the Korean SCH-V740. As rumored, FCC documents confirm
    that the RAZR-like phone is intended for Sprint. FCC documents also confirm
    that the phone will be dual-band digital-only, have an internal antenna,
    Bluetooth, a swivel camera, a color external display with media keys, and
    EV-DO high-speed data. The Korean version is only 14.5 mm thick and has a
    music player, a QVGA display, and a 1.3 megapixel camera.
