In advance of the broken laptop

I have to admit, this latest example of Palm coolness is awfully tempting, but since I owe way too many people way too much money, it's not going to happen for a while. Actually, I would have been happy with a wifi version of the Tungsten III, but for some reason they went with Bluetooth instead on the E2, which I don't think was too smart. And now, sadly, they've succumbed to the lure of Redmond. I suppose if they did bring out a wifi smartphone version of the Treo, though, Cingular and Verizon would cut them off at the knees. Well, I'm still holding out hope for a cross of the Treo and the Rio Audio MP3 players, because I'm not all that impressed with the Real Rhapsody software, at least not in the desktop/laptop environment.

In the meantime...the question is whether to keep a separate cellphone until next year and get the wifi-enabled TX in May, or whether to wait until next year when my contract with Cingular expires and just go with a sled-assisted Treo with phone service through Verizon. edminster's dad swears by his Treo, so that's one vote in favor of holding out.
