Which Palm should I buy?

Hey, BoDers. Long time listener, first time caller.
Not really my first post, but I've been on hiatus for 3 years, so...
I know this topic has been beat to death, so forgive me. I just can't get used to playing on my iPhone. I miss buttons! So I'm going to buy an old Palm on ebay just for BoD (What is it about this game?)
I used to play BoD on my Treo, which I loved. But I'm wondering if I can find:
1. A non-phone Palm with a color screen
2. A button layout that will allow for better two-thumb controls
Does such a device exist?

Mr.pickle.
The best palm I ever played on was a Zire 72s, I played it with two thumbs. The downside of that particular model is that eventually you lose the ability to charge it, I have had two of them and in both cases the charger port was messed up after about a year of use(they can be repaired fairly easily if you have a tiny screwdriver and steady hands to straiten out the pin) but if you can find one that works, I think it is the best system to play on.

I climbed the ranks of BoD with a Treo (600, 650, & 700). Even after switching my cell to an iPhone, I still carried my Treo around just for BoD. I decided to retire for awhile. When I came back, I played only on the iPhone. It took quite a while to get used to 2 thumbs instead of 1, and to get used to the virtual buttons.

Before long, I was beating the times I'd earned with the Treo. In fact, all of my current golds were earned with the iPhone. I just looked back and was surprised to learn that of my current golds, Cave Dweller is the oldest (4/28/09) and Love Maze is the newest (March of this year). Here is the list of all golds (thanks to Casey): http://www.songerfamily.com/bod_golds.php?SortIndex=6

Good luck in finding a Palm. In the meantime, continue giving the iOS version a chance. Play levels that don't require too much turning around (Sequence, Sharper Than Glass, Ice Skating, etc.).

This past summer, I opened a CrossFit gym near where I live. Unfortunately, I haven't had too much time to play since then. It is definitely fun to check in.

You opened a CF gym Brian? Nice! What prompted this... Diet choice?

I've been doing CrossFit for a couple of years at home (since we didn't have a CF gym near my house). My wife and I decided to enter the world of business owners. It's going great so far. As for nutrition, look up the Paleo/Primal way of eating.

BB. That's why I ask. Because I have been eating Paleo for a couple years now myself. I've devoured all the blogs like Chris Masterjohn, Chris Kresser, Dr Harris, WAPF, Mark Sission, etc. And I am a prominent person on PaleoHacks. That's pretty cool that you do CF and eat Paleo.
