So at one point I talked myself into getting one. Searched around (unfortunately the really good rebate plans were already gone), but I found a vendor on ebay that could sell me the phone for $400 and no activation. Called up, ordered it, got a call back the next day--sorry we can't do that deal in Arizona. Dang I hate it when God tells me I have to wait.
So wait I have, every once in a while checking the search engines for more news. Well last month there was a little news and a scratch picture. But yesterday someone got their hands on a working one, fired it up and Posted the results. (See pages 5 and 7.) Now the last time treocentral had pics, Palm made them take them down, so here's a copy in case they disappear.
Thanks to WeeBitObsessed who was apparently a good source of early information on the original Treo 600 as well.
