Curious. A smart phone with drawing

I was looking over the various smartphones, especially the Palms, like the 680, and one feature I am interested in seems to be missing. I am hoping to find a smartphone that also has the drawing capability like the Palm Notepad has. It does not have to be a Palm, and it does not have to be exactly like the Notepad there, just something I can do a very rough drawing and store it for later downloading to a PC.

Any ideas? Oh, and if the smartphone also has GSM - Cingular, preferably, service, so much the better. I may switch services if I have to. But I'm hoping I don't have to.

Thanks for any ideas.

More curious. Since it's a Palm.

Why must the phone come with this? I could install a drawing program.

This phone is not for me, but another person who will not be physically near to me. If there is a drawing program that could be loaded on the smartphones, not only am I not aware of it (but I profess no expertise with any of the smartphones anyway), but also I don't want that very non-techy person to try and figure out how to load such program, but how to use this non-standard program. It will be tough enough to get the person to learn the firmware applications, I really don't want to go through explaining how to use non-norm programs.

I don't have the 650 handy.

But the drawing program was loaded on it.

If your vendor can't show you this, they don't deserve your business.
