    what does that mean?

    It means some guy is simply speculating, and nothing else.

    Someone calling themselves "Alexandra Norkin" purchased it and set it to send everyone who went there to palm's treo600 site instead.

    If palmone registered it, the "WHOIS" information would look more like...

    It's all public info available to anyone. At least he stripped off the person's phone# and email address which also displays in a WHOIS query.

    IMHO, no harm done.

    Ok, so I was at the Treo distributor's office earlier today (I live in Southeast Asia) to check out some accessories that they had and managed to have a casual conversation with someone higher up in their office.

    I mentioned the rumours going around on the net about the next generation of the Treo600 and asked if he had any info about it. He did not divulge any details, but did say that they expected to see it by the end of the year (presumably means that it will be slightly earlier in the US).

    He did mention bluetooth and higher res but no wifi. If I heard correctly, wifi it seems may be available as an SD expansion slot thing. He did not have any info on the name for the new device but did say that from a form factor point of view, it would look 80-90% like the Treo600, whatever that means. And yes, there will still be an antenna. I also remember him saying that it will be slightly more expensive that the Treo600 (don't know if this will be the same in the US).

    Finally, I asked about whether they would consider implementing a trade-in program for Treos since new devices are released every year and he mentioned that that is something that they are looking into (that's better than an outright no I suppose). A trade-in offer would be great for those in my country wanting to upgrade. I left the conversation at that as I was in a bit of a hurry.

    Thought that info was worth sharing.

    & before anyone tries to discredit what I have said above, please bear in mind that I have been on these forums since the days of owning my Treo270 and I have never posted rumours or nonsense on these boards.

    As they might have done last quarter just before the end of the quarter, PalmOne might have shipped off the last of their old devices to those who contractually had to get some - and maybe agreed to a contract mod getting rid of any other purchase obligations for them - etc etc etc.

    Giggle.

    And eat crow you shall my friend. While I can make no statements as to whether or not the new Treo will be out this year(God, I hope so!) I do know this. The LG VX325 will be out by the end of October. How do I know? Because I just returned from a meeting in Atlanta with my Regional Director where we discussed products that will be heavily advertised in Radioshack flyers, radio, and tv adds. They were very adamant that due to the Motorola V710's success at Radioshack, we would be rolling out our first Sprint Bluetooth phone, the aforementioned LG. Now just for some clarification, Radioshack does not make statements like that off of POSSIBLE phone releases. After six years with this company I can tell you we don't say we're carrying a phone unless our buyers have already purchased them. We have also NEVER failed to rollout a phone when we said we would, ergo Sprint will have a Bluetooth phone this year. Now, a little backstory that I have yet to see discussed regarding the T608. There was one reason and one reason alone Sprint launched that phone: To be the first CDMA carrie to market with a Bluetooth phone. In order to do that they had to purchase a phone that was such poor quality that it's manufacturer had already written it off as a failure. Sprint purchased the remaining market ready units (and I use that term loosely) in order to beat the V710 to market, and rolled the phone out very haphazardly because they had not put any thought into how they would protect their precious Vision from being used as a modem. They told their CSR's to make sure people had their unlimited Vision removed if they purchased that phone. The CSR's weren't ready for the onslaught of rightious customer indignation, and many caved in the face of angry customers, thus leaving the Vision service intact. Sprint did not pull the phone because of this, they simply didn't have enough units to make it a mass market launch to begin with. They sold what they had, told their board and Wall Street they were first to market, and moved on with life and their plans to launch real Bluetooth products down the road. This is typical of Sprint in its quest to ALWAYS be first to market with any new product category (Samsung Uproar, anyone?). No big deal (unless you BOUGHT one of those pathetic phones), kudos all around for being first, now let's go rush out to be first with something else(Audiovox PM8920, anyone?). And there you have it.

    So here is what I know as Facts:
    a. There is a new model in production as we speak and it is based on the 600.
    b. M-Systems definitely have something to do with it since there were several M-Systems people in PalmOne offices in the last months

    Thatís all I know for now.

    FWIW, I own a Sony-Ericsson T608 and while I'd much rather have a great convergence phone, I wouldn't call this a "pathetic phone." YMMV.
