Is the palmOne Tungsten T5 boring?

Is the palmOne Tungsten T5 boring?
PalmOne is promoting a roadshow in Australia and New Zealand, showing the newly introduced Tungsten T5 handheld. The new Palm OS based PDA comes with some interesting features, like a considerably sized flash memory, flash drive capabilities when plugged into a Windows or Apple Mac OS X based computer, but that's pretty much it. This is not the so expected palmOne device with built-in Bluetoth and wireless LAN.

Anthony Caruana attended the product launch in Melbourne, Australia, and reports in his blog:

"I felt a little let down by the T5. On the upside, the device ships with a monstrous complement of memory - 215 MB usable memory of which 160 MB is non-volatile. The really cool part of this is that the T5 can be connected to any PC, without special software or drivers, and be used as a removeable flash drive...

Aesthetically, the T5 is pretty bland. It lacks the T3's slide out base and just looks plain."
