At the German Palm user meeting, many developers, hardcore freaks and web masters were present. Thus, the selection of freak boxen was pretty big – here’s a selection of everything that I found cool or weird:

Aceeca Meazura peripherals
The Aceeca Meazura supports GPS and RFID via the two modules shown below:

Both of the modules were completely operational at the PUM, although the case designs may still change a bit. Exchanging the modules is simple as usual – it was described a bit in the Meazura CF module review.

The fake iPhone
Someone “dressed” a tobacco bag up as a iPhone – confused me quite a bit at first:

The modding table
The Nexave organizers had a special “modding table” guarded by various Nexave administrators. The following devices were shown:

A Palm x420 – the prototype successor of the Palm Tungsten W. The device was fully operational, but well, touching someone else’s prototype usually is a bad idea =).

The Palm Senior disposal site
Last but not least, the German enigma group Senior PUG, decided to declare a table their “gathering point”. So far so good, but the word Sammelstelle can be translated not only as gathering point, but also as waste disposal site. This made me giggle quite a bit and probably was intentional…

  1. Dear TamHanna
    please don’t try to be funny about the S-PUG.
    You remember the Seniors reactions, last year as you tried it first.

    2 corrections:
    a) It wasn’t a cigarette packet or tobacco bag.
    It was this

    I gave them to all Seniors who wear the S-PUG T-Shirt.

    b) No, “Sammelstelle” in meaning of Seniors is collector- or gatheringpoint. It described the place where the Seniors meetingpoint was.

  2. Dear Gojira,
    thank you very much for your comment!

    I apologize if any Palm Senior’s feeling were hurt – I did not want to insult!

    As for the corrections: thank you very much!

    Best regards
    Tam Hanna

  3. yes that is the right method for discussing about the senior reaction and my views are same which has been mentioned as above first and that is also a very good sign from tam hanna, because that is the platform where we can learn some thing and also can correct over mistakes.
