What the...?

So Palm's new Tungsten W, which is supposed to be a Handspring Treo killer (in the same way that Adobe InDesign was billed as a "Quark killer"), hasn't even been released yet and it's already outdated. There's no Bluetooth on the thing and it doesn't run Palm OS 5, only Palm OS 4.1.1. What the heck? For five hundred and fifty dollars, I not only want Bluetooth on the S.O.B., I want a personal communications system with a built-in MP3 player, 802.11g and Rendezvous support for listening to streamed MP3s off a local wireless network and a wristwatch remote control. I swear, one of these days I'm just going to build the damned thing.
