    Read news reports recenty on CNET about a Russian spambot farm in operation that is massively increasing the global spam traffic. Everyone is getting more spam these days.

    I don't know. All the signs seem to point to a web developer mistake. It looks more like an unfinished page that somehow got pushed to the live server than anything else. We'll find out soon enough.

    Still, you'd think that if someone had pushed the page accidentally, someone else would have noticed it by now and taken it back down. Especially once orders started flowing in. Unless no one works at Palm on Sundays (joking).

    I don't know how store.palm.com could be a phishing site. I don't think it's possible to hijack the real domain like that, unless you jacked the actual Palm server.

    Either way, I wouldn't order it until it became official. I can't imagine that you're going to get it before they announce regardless. Better to be safe.

    And I'm waiting for the unlocked colors, anyway.

    It is possible to hijack a domain like that without hijacking the actual Palm server. It's called DNS hijacking.

    store.palm.com is 63.240.110.207. It is also the 'Palm' Store. web.palm.com is 66.54.39.105, which is the 'Treo' store. It may well be legit.. although unintentional. If you put in 63.240.110.208 you can get to another store front, the palm canada store. 63.240.110.206 get you the 'Sport Chalet' ;-)

    Looks like they put the lid on pre-orders for now though. Sure seems encouraging though.

    I recieved this e-mail from Palm this morning after placing an order last night. Phishing sites don't generally send follow-up e-mails or wait to charge your card until an imaginary order is sent. E-mail was as follows:

    Dear Alex Day:

    Thank you for shopping at store.palm.com, your business is important to us. We received your order 8xxxxxxxxx-xxxx, which included advanced sale items that are unavailable for immediate shipment. Once the product is available for processing, you will receive a new order confirmation email. The following item(s) will be shipped when it is in stock.


    Item: 1049NA-CN
    Description: PALM Treo 680 Cingular, GSM
    Quantity: 1 @ $ 349.00
    Shipping Method: Overnight
    Arrival dependent upon the shipping method selected.


    Please remember that your credit card will not be charged until the
    item(s) has shipped. When the item(s) becomes available for shipment, you will receive a confirmation email with the shipping details.

    Please visit our online Help area for answers to questions about your order. If you are unable to find the answers you need, you may contact one of our Customer Service Specialists through our online e-mail form, also found in the Help area of our website. Please note: This email message was sent from a notification-only system that cannot accept incoming e-mail. Please do not reply to this message.

    Best regards,

    Customer Service
    Palm, Inc.

    That's interesting. The message I received from Palm didn't have the phrase about advance sale items nor about not charging the credit card. A charge from "Store.palm.com" was posted to my credit card yesterday.

    As of 6:15am PST my order on the Palm store website still reads "Submitted and processing."

    Did you have to sign up for a particular minute or data plan to get the 680?
  15.    #55  
    Palm doesn't sell plans, just phones. I'll take the SIM card out of my 650, pop it into my 680, and I'm good to go.

    That's if Palm ships me the thing!

    When you buy a carrier subsidized phone from Palm, it will ask what plan you want.
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 700wx -> Mogul -> Touch Pro
    You may like to flash, but your phone shouldn't. LED Killer

    The $349 price is for a phone without a contract. The site didn't ask for me to specify a plan and the charge detail shows only the phone plus shipping.

    $349 totally unlocked!? I assume that is the graphite you ordered, no? I doubt they charge more for the colors like Apple does sometimes. Coming soon I hope!
  19.    #59  
    No, I don't thing it's unlocked, just not subsidized. I got my 650 unlocked after a 90 day waiting period. You just have to call Cingular customer service and insist.

    Palm® Treo™ 680 Cingular, GSM
