    Description (revised)

    Item Specifics - PDAs
    Manufacturer: Palm Installed Memory (RAM) (MB): 32 MB
    Model/Series: Treo 650 Condition: New, Never Opened
    Features: Bluetooth, Email/Web, Camera Built-In, MP3 Player, Color Screen, Phone Built-In

    You are bidding on a COUPON good for purchasing a brand new Palm Treo 650 released this week. This coupon was provided to attendees of the palmOne Mobile Solutions Roadshow. You will be provided with my personal registration number and discount code that will allow you to order online a brand new Treo 650 for $349. You can choose from a GSM version or a Sprint version. Note your total cost for the 650 will be: Cost of this coupon (paid to me) + $349 (paid to Palm) + shipping, etc.

    On Oct-30-04 at 09:23:23 PDT, seller added the following information:

    Additional details: No refunds on the coupon if the phones are delayed because of the vendor. However, if the coupon does not work, I will refund your money. The coupon expires on Nov 30, so you have to use it before then (no refunds after that date). According to the vendor's site, the Sprint phone (non-GSM) is available immediately. The GSM one will be "Available Soon" (you still have to order by Nov 30). You will receive one of the first batches to be shipped out of the GSM phone (when it comes out) or the Sprint one. I saw the GSM phone working at the PalmOne Road Show, so I know it is ready. My guess is they have a Marketing agreement with Sprint to give them "exclusive" rights for a few weeks.

    On Nov-03-04 at 08:43:27 PST, seller added the following information:

    Please pay directly through Paypal. I.e. transfer the money from your bank account to your Paypal account and pay from there (helps avoid the card transaction fees - thx).

    It's funny that people are copying almost the exaxt same text from each other in the description of these coupons, but sad that people might pay upwards of $1000 to get the phone early.

    Unless of course, they have the money to burn..

    And its questionable whether or not the coupon will be accepted if the buyer's email address is different than the person who attended.

    What I don't understand is how they can put an expiration date on the coupon if the t650 isn't even available yet. Are you supposed to sign up to recieve one, with your credit card as a deopsit?
