Has anyone ever considered that it is well within Apple's abilities to throw another staggering blow into the armor of Microsoft with the release of a powerful mobile os that could be formatted to replace Pocket PC with all its warts. Only software R+D necessary. Format the memory of the IPAQ unit with its first connection with isync. Compaq/HP should be extactic with all of the addidtional sales. This would certainly work in Apples favor with little if any risk at all...you know test the waters without falling on their proverbial sword (or stylus). Use all of the great bits from the newton...and the IPAQ has shown itself as more than capable of handling media. Just a thought...or maybe I am more in the know than I want to let on....I am sure iphone will happen soon....but this could be really useful as well.
