    I got an email the other day with an invitation to another in a series of Treo Road Shows. The thing is, none of the links in the email point to palmone.com so I'm a mite suspicious. Anyone else get one of these?

    One link in the email points to http://palmone.r.delivery.net ... Another points to http://www.treoroadshow.com ... these smell scammy to me.

    Anyone know if these are legit? They're finally coming up here to Vancouver, so I'd be excited if they were. I can't find mention of them at all through palmone.com

    i am curious if there is going to be some big announcement.

    does anyone know why this roadshow is happening. everytime i have seen a road show, it has involved delivering a new version. could this be possible so fast?

    Is Tundy seeing this?

    Tundy, I sure hope with all your complaints that you will go and be heard. You have a better chance of someone legitimate listening to you at one of these shows than via your website.

    Before you go you should practice making your case in the mirror. Send us all the video so we can help you hone your argument.

    I dont think they are coming out with a new version. During the last set of shows I inquired about one in Atlanta, and they said there would be a second tour that would include Atlanta.

    It means corporations deploying several units in the workforce. My guess is at least 10 maybe 5 units

    Yeah I actually saw this and signed up a month ago, in Los Angeles. This will be my first & should be a lot of fun....I think.

    I just got back from the Santa Clara one-- I actually left early on. VERY few vendors there. I was quite disappointed.

    I registered for the morning session for the Los Angeles Roadshow. The site didn't mention what time the afternoon session starts.

    Nothing. I went because I wanted to see some of the alternative email sych products (ie- besides Good) in action, or at least talk to a rep from some of those companies. One of Goods competitors was there (company name withheld to protect the innocent), but the guy really didnt seem to know much about his product, which looked pretty bare-bones anyway--his "demo" to me consisted of him showing me his email, clicking around and essentially saying (real fast) "see, you can forward mail, reply to all, delete..."-- uh, wow. Does it support Outlook Folders? "Uh, maybe. I dunno". Uh, yeah, thanks. Bye...

    Some vendors with very niche products (some bluetooth barcode scanner thing, a wi-fi sled...) were there, but that was basically it! It became obvious to me in a big hurry that Palms' presentation was going to be VERY basic. So I left.

    I'd really be surprised if anyone on this forum were to get anything out of attending.

    I was at the Santa Clara morning session today. Very few people and ~6 vendors. The "coupon" this time around is purchase 5 Treos and get 2 free, any carrier. This time the coupon is just a card with the 800 number to call to place the order. Then they cross ref to the email address of the attendees.

    No new info, one guy did let them know about the proplems that are coming up on the forums.

    If you have a few friends that are looking at purchasing a Treo, it may be worth while to get the "2" free phones if you can find 5 people that want to purchase a Treo.

    Too bad. Doesn't sound like it was for the individual buyers.
