Bummer...well, sort of.
I took to carrying a Clie and then a Palm Tungsten E after abandoning
my beloved 2100 for a couple of years (I'm back now and loving it!),
and I was interested in the Zodiac. A couple of observations:
1. Palm OS isn't "cool." Gamers aren't/weren't going to go "Finally,
a Palm-OS based gaming rig!"
2. The interface seemed screwy, not as bad as the PSP, but almost.
Really, what was the point? As a professional, you didn't really want
to be carrying around a gaming machine to check your contacts and
calendar. You can sync your mac with your psp, but I wouldn't want
*that* attention at work.
On the other hand, it was cool. It assumed some interest in the Palm
platform, though, and gamers weren't likely to go for it. I guess it
was a little to niche for its own good.
