    I don't understand why a company would spend all that money on R & D, not to mention go to shows with a protype and not release the product...Someone just needs to figure out how to make that stupid Palm wifi card work. I don't see how the battery drain would be any worse than on the Tungsten. If you turn of the cell radio and use an extended battery, I'm sure it would be fine.

    This whole thing sounds all to familiar, though, with Palm promising things they knew they would not deliver on the T600. Palm may have a great product, and I've had a ton of them, but if they keep pushing their users away, it will be RIP palm, not just Enfora. Just my 2 cents.

    Company ran out of money or product was not really production ready, still in QA or pre-order sales expectations did not materialized, so rather than proceed with the production and lose more money, company decides to shelve the product.

    Sure smells like it.
    Also, their projected time-to-market schedule was probably too long so the product would become obsolete with the likely introduction of an integrated Wi-Fi Treo.

    Yes, but if all of this is true, than why are these sleds still showing up on Enfora's website? If they are indeed not going to be released, they need to at the very least take these down, and preferrably actually come out with some news item that tells people they are not coming out and at least ends our misery. Otherwise we just get more and more pissed at the company for not being up front about the whole thing...

    You really should not be feeling like that. This is typical of a start up company. For a non-publicly traded stock company, the last thing that gets updated is the website. The company may still be trying to secure financing to continue business via the banks or private investors.

    Note that the last news on their site is early July and the one prior to that was in March. Forbes news carried information on them sometime on 2003. These are growing pains of the business. Since we are on the outside, all we can do is speculate. They did the marketing and technology announcements, all they now need is the financing and the market demand to support the product.

    Is that a speculation or fact...
    BTW, I have yet to come across any other product , where the launch was delayed this much. Also Enfora needs to know that next Treo most likely will not need there technology, so they better hurry up or give up on this product .
    Why promise, when you cannot deliver ?

    So I see now that the 600 sled has been updated on TreoCentral Store to "avail. around 8/22". Why doesn't the Store just shelve it for good? It's clearly not going to be released, and having it on the website seems misleading.

    Well, the Treo Store has now pushed back the date on the wi-fi sled to 9/6. When will it end? THey should just remove it entirely.

    I'm curious if Verizon is capable of detecting data usage while using the enfora Wi-Fi Adapter. Has anyone been able to confirm either way?
