Good point. I was simply refering to list pricing and not including any
deals that Palm may throw at you. The real point to my comment was that
there are not that many Palm units that have a hi-rez screen for under $200.
I'd disagree that Bluetooth is a frivolous feature. I use it all the time
with my T3. It's quite handy for synching, connecting to the net via my PC
and soon I will use it to connect to a GPS device. If the TE had BT and
still sold for $199 (list) I believe that it would be even more popular.
