    Yes, I saw the conference and the numbers. I thought it was pretty funny that they were getting SMS's during the Q&A session.

    I have to wonder if the numbers were sacraficial.

    Both Ed and Bill said that they were using the phones as their primary mobile devices for the past several weeks. If those numbers were real, I imagine that they would have to get them changed after this (or they'll never stop ringing).

    Still, if I were editing a site like TreoCentral (and the numbers were real) I would have masked the numbers in the screen capture out of professional courtesy. I can't imagine that Greg Shirai really wanted the world to have his home phone number.

    I remember attending one of the PalmOne Treo roadshows and the same thing happened there (with the SMS text messages). The presenter had his personal information on the presentation screen for all to see. Sure enough, someone in the audience sent him a message.

    Since bill just got the phone that morning, I doubt that was his real number. just a number for the phone.

    it was still a dumb mistake, especially they have done this a bunch of time. DOnna's number during the visor edge intro, the joe fabris web demo, etc.

    I realize that the mobile number was just for that (demo) phone..
    However it also had his office number and I believe another number on screen.
