I wish i could get one of those, but it's not supported in my country, as in..
I get no tech service or anything.. and I have to mail the device for any
inconvenience.. too much of a mess :P

I'm tyring to port my audio code to work on PalmOS 5 models and it's pretty 
painful due to how horribly designed the device is, and how it forces you to
keep backwards compatibility with m86k when I really dont want it...

Wish I could just install linux on it, hehe :)
