Ahem: this week, Psion sold their stake in Symbian to Nokia for GBP 135 million, and said they were going to focus on Psion Teklogix, their handheld computing arm. PT has been withering from neglect for years and the current Netbook runs WinCE, but David Potter (the boss at Psion) apparently is getting Linux religion and talking about making a lighter, better, more portable notebook machine.

If they build something like a Psion 5MX but faster, more memory, colour screen, and Linux ... well, I'll be breaking down their door to get one, and I won't be the only person.

Looks pretty definitive to me. If Palm isn't an option what is? I can't get my Palm V to sync with my iBook. I need to buy extra cables and if I am going to spend money I started thinking about upgrading. But with this news its probably time for a rethink
