Most Palms with 320x320 screens cost more than $200. The TE is the only one
that I know of that is under $200 at $199. Also, the smallest Palm units are
the Zire 31 and 21 at 4.4 x 2.9 x .6 where as the HP 4155 is 4.47 x 2.78 x
.5, a very tiny bit smaller.
As for Treo, I think there are some Win CE phones out that are very close if
not better than the Treo 600 and even the 650. My associate has a new
Motoroal smartphone that is much more compact than the Treo, has decently
sized number buttons and overall is a nice unit.
I am a Palm user and fan, but I feel that Palm is loosing ground to PPC and
Win CE smart phones.
