    What exactly does that mean, can you be more specific. Does it mean:
    (a) T600 can be ordered on TMO website.
    (b) T600 will be available in TMO stores
    (c) T600 not available through TMO but can be ordered through HS and will be supported by TMO.
    (d) all of the above
    (e) none of the above
    (f) TMO still needs to figure it out

    I hate to wait! I once waited for a squeezebox to be hand made for me in Germany for 27 months. I am still no good at waiting. But I would pay $500 for this but NOT the $850+ for GSM from overseas! Crikey!

    We just have to wait!

    I phoned TMo early last month and they said support was already launched for the 600.? What gives?

    Yeah.. "support" is way different. I talked to someone in wireless support for almost 45mins one night (the guy was bored and we got into a cool techie conversation) and he said they have been supporting 600's for a WHILE now. He said they all had training, and even test units. He couldn't tell me why they were delaying release. He even suggested I take a look at XDA 2 because he liked it better.

    This was Oct26. So you know they have been "supporting" for a long time. This "release" delay HAS to be handspring. Notice how the Cingular modles wont even begin proccessing until Nov17? There is somthing going on at HS, and I bet you that it has ALOT todo with the fact that they were just pushing for this merger.. and infact they are not ready, or capable to handle the demand for the product.

    As someonen mentioned... do they care? I dont think so. When Treo 700's come out they will have all the financail of PalmOne to handle it. Also, all the loyal customers of Palm will probably jump onboard.

    Ow well, this just means we get to suffer. Its the situation we are in, and if we want this type of device.. its just how its going to be. The bottom line is that this device is still bleeding edge, and this is the quality of service we should expect until these things are mainstream.

    XDA 2 review. If it only had a keyboard and was as small as the Treo. I would be sold on it.

    Nah, it's Pocket PEECEE . I have way too much invested in years of Palm OS experience and programs! I try never to spend my money to enrich Bill Gates. It can be done.

    Kind of like flutecake, I won't move to from Plam to pocket pc for the same reason I won't switch from Windows to Mac or Linux: programs and experience.

    I hear Mac (and Linux) is better than Windows in many areas. However, I have spent years learning Windows (the good and bad), and have spent a lot of money on necessary Windows programs. Could I have the same functionality on another platform? Probably, but it would cost me a lot of time and money to make the switch.

    The same with Palm vs. PPC. I have nothing against PPC devices or programs, but I have invested a lot of money in many good Palm programs over the years which won't work on PPC. Also, I have a good general knowledge of the Palm world, and I know virtually nothing of the dark side, er, I mean PPC. It's just not worth the time, money, and effort for me to make the switch.

    ...I won't move to from Plam to pocket pc for the same reason I won't switch from Windows to Mac or Linux: programs and experience.

    I can respect that and I am glad to have my friends & associates that are Windows saavy and I am, after all, writing this post on my work PEECEE!!

    Laugh with me, not at me, please!!

    I am a multi-platform kind of gal, Unix, Linux, Windoze here on my servers that I am the Admin for here at work but MY money gets spent on Palm & Macs. It's just my choice.
