There is a new toy in the chest: palmOne Lifedrive. I will give you a short tour after the jump.
First impression: Holy cow, this is a fat mother. It holds nicely in your hand, has a great screen, but it is a bit unwieldly to take with you. Which is the whole point of having this kind of device, isn't it?
The screen isn't actually any larger on the Lifedrive than on the Tungsten T3 after you opened the slider. Which is still my favorite design for a small device with a big screen.
Lifedrive and Treo share the same connector, so your power supply, car charger and other accessories should work just fine.
Both the Livedrive and the Treo use standard 3.5 mm connector so you can get yourself a decent headset to listen to MP3 files:
The Lifedrive finally brings back the voice recorder that went missing in the T5. Notice the small holes for the microphone left of the recording button:
This concludes the quick overview. I will be talking more about the features of the device soon. What I can say today is it ain't going to win the prestigious Editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award. And that has nothing to do with the fact that I do have to give it back. By the end of the month at least three of the devices in the top picture will go back to the friendly people who provided them.
I'd take them as well :-)
