    Hey everyone, seems like Handmedia might not be a bluff after all. For now it seems they have their code up, but no pictures for it to display . Hopefully it will be up all together soon, and we can see pictures of their new units.

    They're probably not very good at Photoshop yet. Amateurs, at the Photo Lab I could doctor a picuture in less than a half hour.

    Umm....yeah. Their "site" is partially up sans gif/jpegs. I think this company is a hoax. I find it more than a little suspicious that their site is being hosted by Freeservers.com. These guys can't afford their own server? Very suspect.

    Look at the code at the site. It doesn't appear to be their code...it's just a frame pointing back to freeservers.com

    Not to mention that the code at the freeservers site looks like pure boilerplate.

    Even if they are for real...they are obviously unprofessional. To post a website that has nothing is so "mid '90s". Any self respecting company knows you don't contruct your site online, you do it offline and then post it when it at least has information to share! A sixth grade class could probably create a website good enough for the web in less than a week!

    They people are hacks, slackers, bluffs and unprofessional. Therefore, to ever consider buying a handheld from these people would be a waste of money!

    Did anyone consider the post that came from the COO? He said "the R&D's role was completed much faster then anticipated and the Website team was still on track for the May" yet the CEO does not know what version of Palm OS his PDA will use. What has R&D completed, lunch? These guys are blowin' serious smoke...just buy a Clie and get it over with. The more we buy from Sony, the more creative they will get and the better off we will be!

    Maddog..why on Earth should we do something as sensible as this when we can **** away our hopes and dreams on a fictional company who's products don't even exist?

    These kids aren't trying too hard. Anyways, if you are bored, you can get to the images by typing in the filenames lowercase:

    http://www.handmedia.freeservers.com...preview_10.jpg

    The brains behind this forgot that the server they are using is case-sensitive.

    I particularly love the quote: "Handmedia produces a breed of handheld computers unknown to the world..."

    Yes, it's called the "Alice in wonderland PDA", or "Jack and the Beanstalk PDA, or [insert fictional story here_______PDA]

    End of story.

    Or they intended that to be like that until the products, information, and other pages are up.

    As far as whether I believe them or not, I am not planning to get a new PDA until I graduate in May anyway. If this is real, then by golly I will pick one up. If its not, I will pick up the latest Sony. But I am not holding my breath on this one. If you are looking to get a new PDA right now, go ahead and get one, they won't release their stuff until May, if this is real.

    I just ordered a HandMedia baseball cap for $39.99. I wonder how long it will take to get here....
    That IS a Palm III form-factor in my pocket, AND I'm happy to see you.

    I don't think anyone actually believed this company existed to begin with. At least, most of the folks around here anyway.
