while this may seem offtopic, the more of us potential developers/researchers that have our little hands on one of these, the more work that will get done on them. please contribute to this thread any online/offline locations for getting these devices. please keep in mind that people interested in this project may be all over the world.

to start with:

electronic goldmine (in the USA, will ship internationally)
starter kit - 49.99USD (includes base station)
only the messenger - 23.99USD (no base station)

Also, Walmart is selling the starter kits for $35USD + shipping.

EDIT:
Walmart does _not_ ship outside of the USA.

Walmart is also selling them in their stores. I've seen them in the computer section with all the wireless hubs.

There's a little more information on a similar device, the Zipit Messenger, on the I-Appliance BBS:

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

I'm going to look for one of these in my area. Smile

If anyone is interested in the ZipIt, please join the yahoo group.

I just wanted to inform that I bought an IMFree at the walmart I work at for $15 on clearance. This means we aren't going to carry them anymore. Let me clarify. Our store (#1087) won't carry them. This may or may not follow with all other walmarts in the future, but they have always been (at our store at least) very unpopular. I don't think I even sold one in the year or so we've had them. The retail when we first got them was around $60-70, it now retails for $34.94 at our store.

The reason I bought it was solely to see what kind of "hacks" there are available for it. I don't need it for AIM. But just the other day I did some modifying of my old palm zire, which I first saw on hack-a-day, and put palmorb on it, and lcd smartie on my PC. After having so much fun doing that, I started looking at other possibilities. I have no (or if you want to be nice, very little) hacking skills and have only basic C programming skills, but I'm still anxious to see what becomes of it.
