Memory, CPU, screen res, basic storage ? All mysteriously absent from announcements and reviews.
OTOH, I am a big Palm fan, and still using my Palm Pilot.
If this baby is running enough power to host a compiler so that I can port a few essentials over (WiFi hacking tools, proper browser, basic development environment) then I would be interested. But only if, and it's a fecking great big if, it actually costs me $500, eg about 250 quid. I can't buy a laptop for that sort of money, and it's a bargain for a nice lightweight linux hackers toy with a five hour battery life.
And I'm sure that the linux jihad will waste no time in porting all manner of stuff accross, especially if palm is cooperative, and the machine packs enough punch to run a couple of desktop apps. I'm still hapily running linux and Win98 on my old Thinkpad P90, so I know it doesn't need that much punch to be a useable enough machine for mobile use.
If we get the standard dollar price gouge, eg it costs me 500 quid, then I wouldn't touch it with a shitty stick, since I can buy decent enough laptop for that sort money that will be capable of hosting multiple OSes, incorporate a DVD burner, 3D graphics, etc etc.
Maybe a bit heavier, and bulkier, maybe not as good looking, but far more bang for your buck.
I suspect that the device will sell a few thousand units to the type of techy that will buy anything shiny, and another few thousand to linux freaks in the US and then die a death.
It will surely bomb in the UK and elsewhere, unless Palm shows the good sense to fix the price point. 500 quid is just to expensive for something with such limited functionality.
As a linux toy, interesting, as anything else, expensively pointless.
