So if the details coming out about the PalmOne LifeDrive PDA are legit, it really does look like an interesting product, albeit one that gives me that weird 'why wasn't this out three years ago' feeling. Still, for devotes of the traditional PDA form factor, it looks dreamy, with almost everything Palm users have asked for out of a new PDA (besides Cobalt, the new operating system). I don't know that a built-in hard drive is going to win over any new Palm fans, but for the already-converted, I don't see why they wouldn't want one of these very badly.

Oh, there's a reason I'm posting: new pictures and a supposed price ($550). They don't really confirm anything—especially with the always-questionable lens flare—but it's the only truly interesting product on PalmOne's horizon. It better be real.
