I admit it, I have newdevicephilia!

Joel said a couple of funny things about me on Geek.com recently that Peter pointed out this morning and you may get a good chuckle out of it. To intro my MDA III (now PDA2K) review Joel stated:

“As you know by now, if there’s a cool handheld out there then palmsolo has probably owned it. He’s got newdevicephilia so bad that he frequently pays some large cash to get devices that haven’t made it to the States yet. Well, he took the time to review yet another of those great connected handhelds for us a while back, and I’m only getting to publish it now, so you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that the T-Mobile MDA III Phone Edition he reviewed has since been supplanted. But while he had it, he liked the MDA III so much that he gave it a Geek.com Pick. Check out his as-always comprehensive and photo-filled review–wait ’til you see how cool the thumb keyboard is!”

And then today, I wrote the latest issue of the PDAGeek newsletter and Joel started off by stating:

“Initially I thought palmsolo was just unconsciously making a reference to Neo in “The Matrix” when I saw the title of today’s issue of the PDAGeek Newsletter, but then I thought about it a bit. If you don’t know, palmsolo has had more handhelds than there were Agent Smiths in “Revolutions,” so to hear him get superlative about a particular handheld is not, shall we say, a rare occurrence. But he really seems to like his latest, and if you check out The palmOne Treo 650 may be the ONE! you’ll see why it may just be the Keanu of converged devices. You also get the usual site round-up and software recommendations.”
