Cobalt - market dates?

When do we anticipate Palm OS6 being available (in the UK specifically) ?
I see PalmSource shipped it some months ago.

I'm keen to ditch my PPC and get a Palm or Sony PDA again, but am loathe to
do that with a better OS due if "soon"....

Expect a Sony Clie using a palm os6 soon. Possibly this summer. This
is my personal guess as they seem to come up with PDAs at a rate of
one a month and don't really stick to a release cycle.
Palmone, on the other hand, have a spring and fall release cycle.

that would give Palm a 3 month window of which there are still 6 weeks
of hope for a Spring release or a minimum 4.5 month wait till Sept.

I read somewhere (probably Brighthand, but I'm not sure) that it's
highly unlikely Sony will come out with an OS6 machine this year. That
would put the earliest possible release date at the start of next year.

My bet is that PalmOne will be the first to come out with an OS6 and
that its release will be in October. Then again, they released the T|T2
in the middle of summer, so maybe they don't keep a strict spring/fall
release cycle anymore.
