    The company I work for almost exclusively use HTC phones - no sign of a Palm over here.

    However I've got the Treo 500 for personal use, and for a low end smartphone, I have to admit it does the trick pretty well. Only problem I have is the battery life, which isn't great, but it does the trick.

    It would be sad to see them go if it comes to that - I remember as a kid playing with the Psion 5 and working out how it works - old times.

    There is no future for these companies unless they embrace a proper operating system (Android/OSX Mob)..

    I use a Treo 650, I was able to use Active Sync before the Windows Mobile devices was able to. It would be a shame if this icon disappeared from the options list.

    I personally think Palm must change their image because it is oddly unknown by the younger generation, and that is bad news because that will be your future target market.

    I had several Treos over the years and they weren't too bad. They were never a "killer" gadget, but I always preferred PalmOS to Windows Mobile, and I abandoned them once Palm started putting Windows on (almost) all their devices.

    Access looked promising, but once Palm started re-developing a competing OS I figured the game was up.
