    did anyone else notice sprint is now offering an additional $100 off the T6 with a new activation? the promo runs until 7/31/04. i'll take a wild guess and say that on 8/1/04 the price will be lowered by $100 and by 9/30/04(?) we'll see the Treo 6XX. just my hunch.
    where do you see an extra $100 off?

    I honestly believe the 320 x 320 Treo is still 1 to 2 years away.

    The pictures I've seen are not even Photoshop quality.

    The competition continues to dissapoint and come up with clueless products. The HP is too big, the MPx keyboard was designed by Saddam in his hole, the BenQ is a rarity.

    SO it leaves Palm One alone. Mark my words, people will still be buying Treo 600's in July of 2005. No 610 no Ave no 660.

    And about the lack of wifi in the fake announcements. Why not a wifi card like in all other devices?

    The Sprint price point for the 600 is now roughly where the 300 was last year when the 600 was released.

    You know the Sony P800/900 out sell the Treo (which is only available on Orange in G.B.) by at least 20 to 1. Most people have never heard of the Treo yet nearly all have heard of the Sony P900 and even more curiously Blackberry. I just do not understand the adulation that Blackberry has received here.

    Palms failure to make the Treo available from all networks severely limits it's place in the market, most people are reluctant to change network and all that that involves.

    So what's the scoop? Why was the article pulled? More importantly, when is the device shipping?

    Okay, I read the back posts (I'm lazy) and saw what happened. Still to the other point, though - shipping when?

    In the US they have all the carriers except Verizon and they are in testing mode with them. In Europe they have Orange, Canada they have AT&T/Rogers.

    What failure are you talking about??
    Waiting for Palm Pre on AT&T then can replace my iPhone. Needs Doc To Go and Flash

    I was wondering the same thing.

    Failure to make the Treo 600 widely available accross all carriers in Europe. In G.B. for example this phone is not available via Vodaphone, O2 or T-Mobile. So to put it bluntly the vast majority of mobile phone user in G.B. are not offered the choice of this phone unless they change carriers and even then very few Orange dealers stock the Treo. Frankly distribution of this phone here is a joke.

    That's a failure by any sensible measure.

    In addition, you can just buy an unlocked Quad-band GSM Treo600 and it should work on any network over there!

    PalmOne's real problem is a lack adequate supply to meet demand and marketing to educate people about the device. The wireless carrier relationships have acutally been its strong suits...

    You've probably highlighted the exact problem P1 will have to deal with: the mobile phone market outside the US (the "Rest of the World" ) is at least one order of magnitude bigger than the US market. P1 doesn't understand the dynamics of this market, it is as simple as that.

    Many people here in Europe these days will buy a phone from their current operator as an upgrade with a huge discount. There are only very few people that will shell out 700 to 800 dollars (at least) for a new phone. AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK $the$ $situation$ $is$ $pretty$ $much$ $the$ $same$ $in$ $Asia$.

    The wireless carrier relationships in Europe and Asia are virtually non-existent.

    What are these Sony phones you are talking about. Never heard of the honestly. I will be looking them up. The Blackberry/Blueberry deals are great for email/calander and thats it. Everyone was switching to one device to the Blueberry and loads of them have turned switched back to a phone and Blueberry while I am quietly laughing enjoying my Treo - too bad no support for Goodlink. Come on I need wireless syncing of calander /contacts/email.
