    With the recent annoucement that palmOne owns the name "Palm" again, I thought I would bring up this question: "Have your Palm OS devices always been from Palm?"

    I know that a lot of people think of all PDAs has "Palms", but I have always owned "Palm Branded" handhelds.

    I created a "discontinued Palm OS device" page.

    I though it would be nice to walk down memory lane.

    In addition, I create a poll that asks the question too. You can vote from the front page (right column).

    Have you too been loyal to the Palm Inc (PalmOne) brand?
    Looking for a way to earn additional income? One that allows you to not only market services people use everyday, but the services of the future too? This opportunity provides outstanding earning potential with ongoing training and support. You are in business for yourself but never by yourself. Stop imagining and start living.

    Ok but your survey needs a few extras. For wireless palm, add Yes - CDMA. Also Treo 650s have both bluetooth and GPRS/CDMA).

    For palm loyal, both 1 and 4 are true :

    1000, 5000, Professional, VII, V, Vx, Clie N610, Clie SJ33, Kyocera 7135, Treo 600

    Handspring doesn't count as being non-Palm , as it was started by the guy who started Palm after he left the USRobotics fold. Then he's back. Now he's gone again? Help me here people . . . what is his name?


    P.S. (All Palm.)

    But Handspring and Palm were two different companies. I don't think they should be counted the same.

    ...and his book On Intelligence is very interesting. He's founded a new company called Numenta that is working on giving machines human-like intelligence.

    Back on topic. Prior to my 600 and 650, I owned the Samsung i300 and i330.

    I agree, but it was his creative energy that created Palm, then Handspring, then saved Palm's bacon by "merging" back.

    We owe the man a great debt of gratitude!

    Cheers, Perry.

    Nope, the first one was from 3Com, then I had a Sony (still keep it actually). So technically, 650 is my first Palm device
    Pilot Pro > 2Mb+IrDA upgrade > Clie T615C > Treo 650

    Palm III > Sony N760C > Palm Tungsten T3 (Still have) > PalmOne Unlocked Treo 650 GSM

    My original Palm Pilot Personal was branded US Robotics. IIRC, the III was branded 3Com, and the IIIx, Palm. The Prism was a Handspring of course, and the Clie, a Sony.

    So technically speaking, this is only my second actual "Palm" device!
    Palm Pilot Personal -> Palm III -> Palm IIIx -> Visor Prism -> Clie TJ37 -> Treo 650 -> GSM Centro

    If you count PDA, then yes; if you count gadgets, then no.

    m100->PalmIIIc-> (some nokia phone->Samsung s307->Gameboy SP-> SE K700i)->Treo 650

    All my PDA are/were made by Palm directly.
