The m105 and m500 are discontinued models. And the m105 was never a strong
seller to begin with. I'd say they're just trying to clear out discontinued

However, Palm and Handspring are having a hard time right now. Handspring
especially as many users are moving away from them now that they've
announced the discontinuation of the Springboard module.
