    My first computer was a Apple IIE... but the first PC was a 286 16 Mhz, with 512 kb RAM, 40 MB HD, DOS, and a 2400 baud modem.. I then ungrade to the 14.4 which was lightning fast, and then a 28.8 (cost me $300), That was back when a 1 gb HD was $1000...... Ahhh the good old days...

    Now the Treo 650 is like 300 times as powerful..... (just to stay on topic)....

    And what are you using it for?! Wordperfect?

    I have a question! I ordered a T650 from VC and used a credit card. I just realized that I recently cancelled a couple credit cards due to high interest rates and I'm afraid the one I used to order my Treo may be one of them. Is there a fast way for me to contact them to check my billing?

    Thanks

    Actually I can run Word 3.0 for DOS on it! IMO, the HP 200LX is still the reigning champ of PDA's. Unfortunately, it's just not very connectable to anything very modern and cannot support Bluetooth. Therefore, I just use it for speadsheets (Lotus 123) and various vertical market software for my civil engineering work.

    If someone knows of a BT card with a DOS 5.0 driver, I'll be back using it every day to connect to my Treo.
    Best,

    I just visited my local Cingular store (in the Chicago-land area) and spoke with a twenty-something young sales rep. He said he had just checked the computer and his inventory for what they were expecting for shipments and he said that nothing was in the computer or in the inventory list for the Treo 650 GSM. He said that now the expected date is mid-February and that they pushed it back. Granted this may not be the 'end all' to the release. Perhaps PalmOne will release it directly? I don't know. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, trust me I want the Treo 650 GSM as bad as the next guy, just thought I would post this and see what everyone thinks.

    The only release information that has been posted as somewhat 'reliable' is from B2B and that is that they will have it for Cingular Thursday, and with overnight shipping ($15) you can have it by Friday... They have said from the begining that they have no idea when stores will recieve them. Other managers have said that the treo 600 stock must be gone before the store carry it. Just my take on the informatino that has been given to me..

    SpiralEx,

    We haven't been talking about getting this phone from Cingular stores in this thread. Ours are "hot right out of the oven." Welcome to the bleeding edge.

    I could not have said it better. Had it not been for the dismantling of the Apple Newton project, Palm (later PalmOne) would have never been born. Former Apple employees founded Palm.

    Guess you haven't heard the horror stories of the PowerBooks G4 keyboard problems.

    Okay while we continue to wait (for the Treo 650, thus staying on topic), I will demonstrate my age:

    My first computer was an Apple II Plus with 48K. I had a 300 baud modem. I was 30 something at the time . . . .

    So that I could do dBASE II programing, my company bought me a Z80 card, a 16K memory card, an 80 column card, and a second floppy disk drive. I performed the “shift key modification” so that I could get upper and lower case! It ran CP/M 2.2 which was a predecessor to DOS. (long story there, BTW)

    Bring back the Newton! I would love to see an Apple branded Palm type device. That would be awesome, but I'm relatively sure it's not going to happen.

    So I tried to search this gargantuan thread but couldn't find an answer: I'm not familiar with GSM but if I where to buy a gsm phone, does that mean I could use it pretty much anywhere worldwide? Are all gsm phones the same and do they all accept these "SIM" card thingies or are there different types of sim cards etc? Finally, how do I go about finding a service provider when I travel to another country? Thanks all.

    Well, yes, My thoughts are that my third party vendor is about to to ring the necks of both VC and P1. They will release together within 4 days is my prediction. I also go with my previous assumption that the VC units are sitting in boxes, waiting for charge confirmation and labels and they will be out the door.

    Other people have reported that they will send you an email saying that your card unable to be charged, was there another way for you to pay.

    I would contact them prior to avoid delay, shipping is going to be a hectic time and you wouldn't want them to put you in a stack of "issues".

    Can we revitalize the discussion on data plans? cglaguna and 100thMonkey: give me the break-down again. I'm sorry to ask, but I think a strategy is order. Some guy started a new thread and says he has a GSM today. Let's find out what data plan he has and see if he will let us probe.

    Spoke with B2B on the AT&T side of Cingular and everthing is still a go for tomorrow. The data plan is the pits. 39.99 for 3 megs and 49.99 for unlimited. "I Will Wait For The GSM Model. Who's With These Prices?" Perfect if I do VoIP was possible, but it is not. I will look closely at PalmOne tomorrow for unbranded/unlocked phone at retail price.

    You've got to be kidding me. $49.99 for unlimited data?????? $20 on T-Mobile and $15 on Sprint. Unbelieveable if true!
