    Actually it is more like 415, or 414.95 to be precise. Thats more than a $ you left out.

    They also mention that the 680 is 290, which is interesting, because we can use that to calculate the price of an unbranded 750 in $. First we remove the english VAT, because palm usa does not list VAT, does it?
    750 without VAT is listed to 353.15
    680 without VAT is listed to 246.77

    we asume this:

    price of 750 in $ / 353.15 == $399 / 246.77 <=>
    price of 750 in $ == 353.15 * 399/246.77 <=>
    price of 750 in $ == $570.97

    There you have it. Since Palm store UK price for 680 is 262.64, my guess is that 750 will be $599 for an unlocked.

    You should be able to. Expansys is MobilePlanet in the US. I was once told that whatever they sell in their European stores can be purchased here in the US. It's the same store and although it may not show on their US store site, call them and ask for it specifically, and they'll be happy to sell you one.

    $600 USD would not be a bad price! And it would prove that Cingular once again overpriced their locked phones!
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    i think the number dropped to 40-something because that is how many got transferred from their UK location to the US. they didn't sell that many. UK has a lot on their site still. this is just my guess!

    Hint: the Palm Store at SFO (the one at Gate 86) is a good friend to TreoCentral members.

    jwarn3rd here on TC works there. Good guy. I met him several weeks ago when I was changing planes at SFO.

    It might be worthwhile getting the 750 direct from Palm then paying for the unlock code. Cheaper than mobileplanet.com. U.S. sale. Easy warranty. Etc.

    Yes it is larded up with Cingular's junk.

    Palm sold its corporate soul to Cingular by slowly cutting off sales of unlocked/unbranded Treos (look at the 680).

    Apparently Palm has told me, Tastypeppers, the guy who has opened up his wallet FOUR F-ING TIMES TO BUY A TREO (two unlocked unbranded 650's, a 700wx, and a 750 from jwarn3rd ordered today), to go stick my nose in a dead bear's bum because they don't want to sell me more Treos the way I would gladly purchase them -- unlocked and colorful.

    The one from Mobileplanet is supposed to have HSDPA support active correct? The current Cingular and Vodaphone ones don't.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680

    Well Cingular wants $650 for a LOCKED if you don't want to sell your soul for 2 years to them!!! So I'm guessing some people will pay the $700 to AVOID that!!

    I think $600 would be better, but they'll sell them for whatever they think they can get, I guess.

    In my hands and using it now. And in response to previous question about why pay more. for me it was all about getting the most for my money. i figure that since i had to pay $650 for cingular i may as well pay $689 and have an unbranded one figuring that the resale value may be better should i decide to dump it and get an iphone or something. and also just cause i wanted the unbranded one for a myriad other reasons which you can read about in some of my previous posts. agree or not, it was my money so i'm happy. :-)

    I hate unlocked branded phones. I have a t-mobile account and a cingular account and I want more bag for my buck. Unbranded phones work better switching between accounts. You know an extra $100 bucks is not worth working around carrier limits and alterations.

    Grundler, what programs are pre-installed? I will not have mine until Monday - which sucks
