Here is a little 3gp video made in a subway station(don’t listen to the sound-I know that the grammar sucks;)).
I spotted those machines at the western railway station(gone now), at the U4 in Hietzing(gone as well-major subway station) and even in a cinema(there were three of them).
You simply place your mobile phone’s IR receiver next to the “eye”-and you should receive a message with a link to the ringtone within a few seconds. While this didnt work (immediately) with my Tungsten E2, I dare to say that it will probably work with most regular phones.
What does this have to do with the Palm OS? Imagine a company like PalmGear constructing a “kiosk” that sells/distributes PalmOS software. Strategically placed, people would permanetly get supplied with new apps that they will eventually buy-generating revenue for the owner of the ad. In addition, this would make people more aware of the Palm OS.
What do you think? Did you spot something like this? Feel free to comment-its free and anonymous!
