    Dammit, I was checking European sites, and the Asian sites came in under the radar!!!

    http://www.handspring.grandtech.com/

    Hot Diggity!

    btw: PalmInfoCenter hinted me.

    edit: Can't buy it off the site, so I suppose "shipping" in this case means "it's on the way to the stores, where you can buy it." Still, nice to see this thing is finally going out to consumers.

    While I'm at it, looks like Handspring HK is spreading disinformation, take a look at this visorphone image:

    does HK have smoke prisms?

    I care... did you read any dates on when they start shiping in Australia?
    The aussie site says 'early 2002'...

    Lord, no. Except for that FCC debacle and their "slips" WRT release dates, I've found nuthin.

    I will care when they start shipping it in North America!

    I couldn't tell if it was a treo or one of those Nextel phones. My guess is the nextel, but I'd love to be proven wrong..

    ...are you talking about the one that "Josh" uses?

    It was actually "Sam" that I saw potentially using the Treo. It was hard to tell for sure, but they like to showcase the latest tech products; one week they are using Dell laptop's, the next, Mac's.

    I just realize that the treo's that are being shipped are the 900/1800 models.

    Maybe the 1900 components are the ones they were having trouble with....

    could be... I have to say that for some reason I can't keep track of who uses what GSM freq (or is it band--aw, what's the difference anyway?). Does Europe use 900/1900--I know it's more than one...

    sigh.. I suppose I could actually go looking around here for the euro-wireless-guru post...

    At this point, I'll just be happy to be wireless again before the end of the semester.

    FYI European GSM networks use 900/1800 MHz frequencies.
    I think all countries have at least one 900 network (legacy frequency) and most of them also have 1800 network(s) (newer frequency).

    Europe uses the 900 and 1800 (900 being the original). The US uses 800/1900 (GSM800 is a new 'standard' which AT&T and Cingular will be rolling out RSN).
    sigh.. I suppose I could actually go looking around here for the euro-wireless-guru post...
    heh...yep, I even put a link in there explaining the evolution of the current global hodgepodge. The US started out as a single monolithic standard and then mandated competing standards whereas Europe started out with a multitude of less-than-compatible systems and then mandated a single standard (which later spanned two frequencies). It starts to get even more ironic in that 3G services for the current wide-coverage carriers in the states (Cingular and AT&T) are likely to adopt the EDGE standard (next generation GSM) whereas it looks like Europe is leaning towards the new CDMA standard (Verizon and Sprint are rolling these out in the US probably around summer time - don't be fooled by the current 3G hype) last I checked.

    That's right, in the US the 1800 band was allready used so they went to 1900.

    Personally I wonder which one to go for... I am in countries with 900/1800 networks most of the time, however I travel to the US occionally too...

    How good it the 900 network in the US? I thought you needed 1900 for us, hence the motorola triband phones..

    There is no 900MHz cell network in the US. The US uses 800 and 1900 currently. There is some lobbying currently, though, to get the DoD to relinquish the 1800 frequency (well actually, it's the 1700 MHz spectrum which they have, but that's part of GSM1800, so...).

    Thanx for the info... that means for me to let my cell work in the US I need to get the 900/1900 model. That works in just about all places with a GSM network...

    Now the wait is for the color treo....
    Aaaarrrrhhhhggg where did my patience go?

    That's right, when I said every country has a 900 network, I meant every European country...
    So your best choice is obviously 900/1900

    Hmm...that's quaint. The 'Ugly American' attitude from a Luxembourger.

    Don't even go there! It's a mighty big can of worms, and completely off topic for VC too, I suspect.
