To answer your questions, I do work for Bell. That is how I know these things. Unfortunately Annapolis, I am not as knowledgeable about the specifics, as these units have not been released in Canada. I would imagine that being Windows-based, they would have the same handwriting input as previous PDAs. However, I will at least try to find out and give you a reply.
As for price ranges, I again have no idea on the Palm. The Moto Q based on what is distributed to Bell employees is that the price is listed at $649 regular price subsidized. That is of course, the no contract price. The standard rebates apply on 1/2/3 year terms with savings of 50/150/200 respectively, putting the 3-year term price at $449. Of course there is likely to be some sort of additional savings upon launch, likely to match it up to Telus' pricing.
