In related news, Palm Computing is expected to announce their new Palm i705 wireless PDA any day now and has been sending a teaser email to select customers: “Dear Valued Customer. All we can say is that the newest Palm? handheld is coming. Very soon. Stay tuned for more details.” If you are interested in being the first on your block to get one of these pups fill out this form at the Palm Web site.

The Palm i705 is reported to feature “always on” wireless access which means it has the ability to check e-mail (for example) even when the handheld itself is off. More information on the Palm i705 is available in this article at PalmInfoCenter.

Rumor has it that Palm is also working on the i725, a PDA that can do double duty as a mobile phone but that isn’t expected until later in the year.
