I'm guessing that it will be a lamed PDA for students. One more reason for kids to carry around nifty stuff and instill greed and envy in their peers (or get the crap beat out of them
On the palm board at Brighthand.net I'd say 50% of the people are students, and quite a few of them are in elementary school.I guess if you have a yuppie mom who schedules play dates, you need one.
I honestly don't think that it's entirely a bad idea, but I got my sons laptops instead... which instead of "playdates" lead to sessions of them busting security on people's dialup and BB sites (this was 20+ years ago...)
Anyways, there have been attemps at PDA type software for GB and GBC. I forget the name of the GB one (I've got it at home), but there was this one called the SharkMX which was a mail system, contacts, and scheduler. I have one of those here in my desk. You could actually up and download email with the software (simple pop and smtp clients). I had to hack the cart to change the phone number from the dead server IGN used to run.
The one on the GB couldn't remember the current date (it didn't have a clock), so you had to scroll to the current date. UGH. The MX was much better, since it did have a clock! I actually used to take it to meetings with me (on the lime GBA) to irritate my boss.
If they put out decent software, I'll use my ds in meetings just to have the fun of watching them make faces. Actually, I end up taking my laptop to most meetings...
