Are PDB's (Palm data files, as opposed to programs) not going to be copies
from the Desktop PC to the new handheld if full data restoration is as-
sumed? How about synchronising the T2 with the Desktop, then synchronising
it with the Tungsten 3 right after a hard reset. Will the Desktop be able
to tell that the Palm unit is different? Even though there is no profile
(user) associated with it? I suspect the no PDB's are lost in case of a
hard reset with complete data loss. Why not 'fool' the Desktop and have it
believe that a T3 unit was used all along?
