    I wondered the same thing myself. Here is text from the email I received after registering:

    Right you are. Except they didn't specify WHICH Treo smartphone you could get a 50% off, so as far as they are concerned you are getting a 50%, ...if you purchase a Treo 600.

    These marketing people never ceases to amaze me. I wonder if this goes in front of a judge, which side would win?

    the 50% was for the 600, the 650 was added later, but not for the 50$ price break.

    yeah, I never heard 50% off either, $350 is what I understood it would be all along.

    The 50% email came to me shortly before the Nov NY show (~11/2) when I registered which was well after the 650's were made available to attendees at the earlier shows. The email never stated it was for the 600 and not the 650 however the 650's were always listed at $350 when they first became available. The email was never changed to reflect the 2 different prices. I really don't care about the $50, but it was a point asked and answered.

    Did you save a copy of the email you received when you registered (I posted a cut and paste of my email a couple messages back which clearly stated 50%). I did hear from others at the earlier shows that the price would be $350 despite what the email said so it wasn't unexpected. Frankly, I'd pay $450 right now if I could get a GSM model.

    This is what Jeff sent me on my question about my GSM order #113x:

    Quote:
    No update yet from palmOne. We hope to begin getting GSM devices from
    palmOne toward the end of this month. Yours will likely ship some time in
    February.

    Say goodbye to any kind of customer loyalty program when the Treo 700 fixes (we would hope) the problems inherent to the Treo 650. (Well, we would hope for improvements but that may be too much to ask for!) Those who purchased the Treo 650, bugs and all, will get to have this fun all over again in about a year or less from now, and at full price no less.

    In all honesty, I think we partially brought this mess on ourselves... think about it... Palmone put on the roadshow for these people:

    "I'm trying to run a business here. I've heard a little about this Treo from Palmone, but I'd like to learn more. What can it do for my business?"

    NOT for these people:

    "I'm a Treo geek that has been waiting impatiently for the release of the "ACE". I want to buy the new Treo as soon as it becomes available, and I want to buy it at a discounted price!"

    Come on, stop fooling ourselves. For all the claims to be "decision makers", I'm sure the majority of the people that caused this shortage just wanted a discount. We are partially responsible (by somewhat "taking advantage of" this "program") for this situation.

    Someone had to say it.
    I think I sorta did, in post #474... quoting:

    I spent a lot of time with Joe at the Chicago roadshow. He's a real nice guy--go easy on him. I'm certain when pa1mOne launched this program they didn't count on every Tom, ****, and Harry who surfs TC coming to get their discounted 650's. It's nice so many showed interest and excitement, but most did come for the discount. It's simple--either the wait is worth the savings, or go buy one at retail and sell the discounted one to make up the difference when it arrives.

    All this bi***ing and talk of class action suits is ludicrous. Please, spare us... I'm on the slow GSM boat, so I'm not just preaching from on high as I use my 650, either.
