Palm Needs OS 5 Update, Bad

I’ve been a long time Palm user, but the new PocketPC devices are starting to look really appealing. Mostly because PocketPC devices have better support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPRS. Trying to get GPRS to work on my Palm is a pain. I helped a friend set up his PocketPC device with Bluetooh to access GPRS and it works great. Hopefully Palm OS5 will help Palm catch up, otherwise they will lose users who are lured by wireless internet access. Palm is a better PIM, but PocketPC is a lot more capable when it comes to wireless.
