There's got to be more demand than that around here even in
original form (B&W), though it's not *really* a PDA in that
form.  Rather, it's a phone with AIM and a web browser that
has a thumbpad--despite Dave being enamored with the mail client
;-).  No calculator, can't get the contacts *out* much
less sync to anything else, etc.

In a color form and the ability to add other applications, it's
progressing somewhat.  We'll see how fast the apps roll out, and
decide from there.

The T-Mo rep from when we had the store going also expressed
dismay.  We had to traipse halfway across the East Bay to get
my B&W--I paid full retail for it b/c my master agent didn't
carry the damned thing (see above).  I ended up buying my
leather "racing stripe" case on Amazon.
