TOPICS:
The gang’s all back, even though we all have big projects going on at the same time.
Did folks overhype the Apple WWDC announcements? We don’t think so….
A quick thank-you to the sites that helped us out with support for the recent Podcast Awards nomination for Best Mobile Podcast:

Is Sony’s new mylo worth $350? What is the core competency of the device? If it’s instant messaging, why no support for AIM or MSN Messenger? Hey, where did the OGO go…go…?
Matt’s trying out a PPC-6700 on Sprint’s network; get his thoughts, likes and dislikes. Is he following the “yellow brick road” to mobile technology? ;)
Sprint goes 4G with a WiMAX announcement. What does this mean for the mobile user?
Voicemail from Steve over at Carrypad: what’s the big deal about USB EV-DO options in the U.S.; can’t you just tether your 3G phone? How about the Nokia 770: does it qualify as a “UMPC”?
Samsung updates the Q1 BIOS and several other apps, but they don’t seem to be telling anyone. :(
Freeware of the show: TypePad Mobile for blogging on your Palm, Symbian or Windows Mobile device. We tried it and it works well!
Pics of the Treo 750 expected for Cingular are out and about as are shots of the Palm OS Treo Nitro.
E-mail from Susy with a potential case recommendation for the Samsung Q1 or other UMPCs: check out Waterfield Designs!

Thanks to everyone who voted for us the last two weeks and enjoy our shows. [...]
