    You got a point there... but there is another Palm Forum in China whereby their member sucessfully bought a unit in ebay USA and had it shipped to China.... the cost was US$550. The guy is doing a detail write up and even upload the 680 rom for the following members to play around...

    When has Palm / Handspring / Palmone / whatever shown any logic? They are always so terribly slow to market. What is revolutionary when it is pre-announced is always disappointing when it finally arrives. They ignore what the customers want, and ignore entire segments of their market. It's so damn frustrating!

    Not saying it's the case here but come on..... if you have credible information back it up with the source. The number of rumors will dramatically decrease.

    Then again, it's good for the forum for such open ended sources. Sparks tons of posts and conversations.
    The "Source" didn't leak anything. I saw it. The information is on a secured vendor site. I can't say who. It doesn't really matter as most people won't know who they are anyway. This is not an ego trip, believe me or not I don't really care. If you have to have "full disclosure" then wait for the announcement. This is to me a realistic marker that it is coming soon, reletively speaking.

    My thoughts, Cingular will release their version first, get some exclusivity. The unlocked versions will follow.

    Well that's a big surprise that you can't say who.

    Glad you don't care. If you can't reference your source, the realism of your marker has no foundation. I guess it's just part of the game that is being played.

    Found another location matching the UPC I have:

    Here is a link to the Generic 680, this information looks very very similar to what I saw.

    The guy didn't say exactly where he bought it in the thread.

    He provided the ROM, but I haven't check it out yet.

    He said that the 680 was already in the US market (which is clearly not true)
    and mentioned the price on ebay was 54X USD and plus express shipping it made up 600USD....

    I thought he mentioned that he got it from ebay USA and that is the reason he got it fedex with total cost at USD 600

    My feeling is he got from "special" channel and mentioned ebay to divert questioning of the source.

    He didn't reply any question about the source in the following post.

    Anyway, just wait for mine ...

    The the original in Chinese, the answer is vague to me ...

    价格还好了,美国上市了,在ebay的价格是54x美刀加上dhl到国内的价格要将近600刀了,所谓的200刀是签约价格。不过相信650会降下来

    The negative is the number of units reserved by a customer from that warehouse.

    Here's the Chinese posted above translated to English compliments of babelfish translater. Wonder what the deal is with knives

    The price fortunately, US went on the market, was the 54x beautiful knife adds on dhl in the ebay price to the domestic price to have nearly 600 knives, the so-called 200 knives were sign a treaty the price. But believed 650 can lower
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 700wx -> Mogul -> Touch Pro
