    I am really dissapointed with this thing. I was anticipating it for the longest time, but looking at it, I dont know who would want it. First of all, with the specs it has, it is at least a year and 100 dollars behind the competition. I dont know why you would include bluetooth, but no wifi. They made that mistake with the T3 and did it again here. No OS6 like promised either. Plus they dropped OSX support. I currently have a Tungsten C, and was looking forward to this. I am now looking at the Dell X30 and a few of the iPaq's. the only reason for me to stick with Palm, is that there is more medical software for the Palm, but I heard that it changing. Anyone have experience with the Dell's or HP's and Panther?

    They still did not drop Mac support.

    I like the Tungsten T and the T|3 better than the T|5...my opinion.

    Its been stated before in many a forums, do a search. Also, they are a pain in the ass to synch anyways already with OSX.

    They stated quite a while ago that they were dropping the Mac support. The company I work for doesn't make any mac software too and we have a Palm unit out on the market.

    PalmOne have already said they're NOT dropping Mac support.

    That TE2 wannabe doesn't deserve to be called TT5, it's remarkably lame :eek:

    And where are the POS 6 PDA's:confused: are they waiting for St. Valentin's day?

    Well, I think the 160mb flash drive feature is a really good idea. All PDAs should be able to do this and to save all of their data to a flash disk instead of to ram, which almost always gets erased at least once due to the battery losing its juice.
