A fleet of new Windows Mobile boxen

As if Brad's announcement didn't taste bad enough-the German c't now reports about a herd of new WM5 boxen. Since little is known about these, this article has a more-less tabular style:

Asus MyPal A632
The FCC was the news leak here. This MyPal runs Windows Mobile 5 PocketPC edition on a 416Mhz PXA272. It has 64MB of RAM, 128MB of Flash and an integrated GPS unit.
Asus MyPal A636
This essentially is an A632 with Bluetooth 1.2 and WiFi. Price and release date of these machines isn’t known yet!
XDA Mini S
This essentially is a re-branded HTC device for the German carrier O2. It will run WM5 on a 200Mhz OMAP850. It has 64MB of RAM, 128MB of Flash, a miniSD slot, a keyboard, WiFi, a 1.3MP camera with flash and an integrated GSM radio. It will ship for 600€ in October.
XDA phone
The XDA phone runs Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone(read:no touchscreen) on a 200Mhz OMAP850. It has 64MB of RAM, 64MB of Flash, a miniSD slot, a 1.3MP camera and an integrated GSM radio. It will ship for 500€ in October.

It looks like WM5 is getting fatter and fatter. Garmin won't like the new GPS MyPals, while the XDA's will go for Treos and other smartphones. Will the PalmOS survive? If you posed this question a week ago, I would have said for sure. But now, who knows what will happen. If GSPDA/Hagenuk, Qool and the rest of the pack don't get carriers on-board, the show could be over soon.

Hi Dmitry,
this is not a real option IMHO, altough it would definitely be funny in a simulator!
