Honestly I wouldn't mind... Palm's software seems to have just stopped in time as far as advancements go... Windows Mobile seems to keep evolving and getting better while Palm hasn't changed much.

I'm hoping it's Nokia, i like their phones (i haven't managed to kill one yet).

Also hope Palm or whoever it is, gets around to getting the OS based on Linux finished, an officially supported Linux distribution for Palm devices would make it attractive to the hacker crowd.

Oh, never mind then. Well I still wouldn't mind, but hopefully it's Nokia because they make very attractive hardware.
