Motorola drops supplier of MPX. Is the 2005 release in Jeopardy?
Motorola will no longer place any ODM orders for Microsoft Windows-based smartphones with Taiwan-based handset makers, according to the Chinese-language Commercial Times report
Apparently Motorola wants to bring the production in-house. That could be why this phone has been continually delayed. Will it ever see the light of day?
US release date?
Microsoft OS??? Question

Moto misses the mark... again!
When I first saw stories on this and saw the pics at my local Cingular store, I thought I finally found the perfect phone. Now I could consolidate my iPod, Nokia 6620, and Zaurus into a single device for work. But now, I think I'll just suffer with my 6620.
For a serious PDA/phone, it needs EDGE. Straight GPRS doesn't cut it. The keyboard does not look like it'd be easy to type on with it's messed up layout (why didn't they learn from the Nokia 3650?). And Windows Mobile is crap.
I was hoping they'd use Linux with iTunes/iPhoto support. And now with PalmSource's latest announcement, PalmOS 6 could run on top of such an OS.
And I wonder if Moto is going to pul...
Why keep the release date under wraps?

Treo 650: sdio wifi, EDGE
I would at least have thought that since Moto delayed release of the MPx, they would have done something smart like introduce UTMS/HPS... something or other to out shine all the others hands down.
Well, I'm going to take a wait and see attitude with the next generation of Moto products b/c dropping $300-400 (maybe more w/ contract) every 6-8 months for someones p...

What's the deal exactly?
Are GSM phones really so simple that you can pull any ol' GSM phone from anywhere, switch that SIM chip out and you've got a working phone in the US?
I know I've asked this before and been told "Yes", but it just so feels like there should be a catch.
Maybe I'll search thru the "Techs & Trends" forum and maybe ask this there.
Lame keyboard layout...
If you're hardcore enough to want this thing, are you really going to want that keyboard?
I am thinking about buying off Ebay
Does anyone on this forum think it is a bad idea to buy one at this time?
Has anyone seen the codes to put this on the Cingular network?
Any other input would be great....Thanks.
