    This site is a known "Phishing" site. So, should we believe what is posted here?

    It seems like too many things going on at the same time... What do you think? Does a buy out of Palm by RIM make sense?

    I thought RIM was not doing too good in the financial department after the lawsuit over the Blackberry software

    It's doing much better than Palm. And at least they own their technology. Remember, RIM had saved 450M on escrow a long time ago so the settlement only cost them an additional 160M or so. For me that's a lot of money but with a company with a couple of Billion in the bank it aint much. :-) I really don't get it if they do though. Because I would think Apple would be the one to buy RIM, as crazy as it sounds. That is in my opinion of course! :-)

    Palm addict is talking about it. I hope it's true.. The Handspring will end up running RIMM, just like when they were bought by PALM!!

    RIM's got money to burn and nowhere to go with their technolgy. First we see RIM complaining about mobiloe broadband ruining everything and now this. While it makes good sense for RIM if they can afford it, I think it would be a bad idea for Palm

    Notice the little blurb in the story (sec: RIM's Problems) about the "soon to be launched 750w". Hmmmmm

    Jack -

    Read some of the other threads in the Future Treos forum. Brandorr IS Stockoperator, so he is quoting himself as a reference.

    You can lay whatever weight on the stockoperator's postings you want but I was not the linl TO his article, I was referring to the links IN his article I am talking about what was published by:

    PIkesoft
    Bloomberg
    Engadget
    NYT
    MS
    SEC filing

    Like this little tidbit:


    Talking with John Starkweather of MED Division at Microsoft - Part 2
    http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/ar...,11333&start=3

    "
    John: ....Ultimately, every single one of our devices, I could pick it up and say, wow, I love that. There are some things that I love about the Treo the GSM version that comes out later this year, that will probably be my favourite device."
    And note this also, (my own link)

    http://www.newratings.com/analyst_ne...e_1306127.html

    Somethings happening.

    Over a month ago my Cingular major accounts manager told me they weren't doing the 700 p or w but where doing the next Treo....Late august - September time frame

    After the 700w was announced but not released, I was saying April 15 - May 15 announcement of 700p and release wiythin 45 days. Made that one by skin of my teeth.

    Before the 700p was released I said announcement of next GSM Treo August 25 - September 25 and release within 45 days. Let's see if I get lucky again.

    No argument there, Jack. It appears something is happening. I just find it distasteful when someone quotes what appears to be in independent speaker only to find out he is quoting himself in another venue.

    RIMM and Palm merging makes a lot of sense. There just isn't enough room for that many niche players in the phone market.

    I also think it would make sense for Motorola to join the mix. Palm-RIMM-Motorla in may be able to hold it's own against the Nokia-Siemens juggernaut.
