Traditionally, the German Nexave Palm Community holds a nationwide meeting of Palm OS users on the Friday of the CeBit fair. This meeting is called PUM – and always brings along a few surprises.

This year’s big surprise was brought along by vivomobile – a huge crate full of broken handhelds, planars, parts,.. – they all could be taken home for free(loads of toys for tinkers):

Clemens Schuchart from the PUG Neuss Podcast held a 30min talk on how to use a Palm(and what to use it for) – while most of this wasn’t really interesting for professionals, beginners still could learn a lot here:

After that, Palm’s Mr. Weiss had a short presentation and answered a few preprepared questions from the Nexave team. Generally, Mr. Weiss’s answers were rather bland and did not contain anything new or especially interesting:

As always, a load of German Palm freaks was around:

This year, yours truly also had a small booth demoing various handhelds not running on Palm OS. The devices attracted a huge load of onlookers(including some very prominent ones) – many used the opportunity to look at Windows Mobile(and a jailbroken iPod touch):

Of course, some StyleTap consulting was also needed:

In the end, it was a rather interesting evening – I’ll try to make it there again next year:

Stay tuned for extra stuff(and some surprises) soon!
