Paul, did you get a chance to see the "Project Legionnaire" at the i-mate booth? This also looks quite interesting, even if it is a Pro phone. It is tinier even than my Touch Diamond, so they will have to have some significant finger optimizations (6.5?) if it is to be useable. ADVERT LINK REMOVED
have a couple of pics:

Hmm... Curiouser and curiouser. WMPoweruser
is now reporting that the Legionnaire is
a Windows Mobile 6.5 handset with modern specifications like WVGA screen, HSDPA, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, microSDHC slot etc and it is supposed to act also as a touchpad when you slide it in the Warrior.
So, what is the Warrior? Well they say it is
actually a very innovative device, as is it is basically a dock with a 10-inch XVGA screen, a dedicated battery, SD Card reader instead of a Hard Disk and an array of several ports, including HDMI. As for the for the task of providing processing power, this is up to second device that i-Mate revealed, the Legionnaire.
So, something like the Redfly but even more integrated? The estimated price is Warrior $199, Legionnaire $500.
