If you have pre-ordered the PPCW.Net i-Mate and got a confirmation E-Mail so time ago - today is your day: shipping starts now. :-) I was just on the airport to pick-up some of the packages but wasn't able to bring all into my car. So I expect the complete delivery Monday but this is how it looks if I pick up a "handful" PPCW.Net i-Mate packages: :-D
Awesome, so many devices I have to repack now and send it out to you (plus the one I left on the airport). If you haven't received a detailed delivery date but just a pre-order confirmation; your devices will arrive next week with another batch! :-)
So ladies and gentlemen - please load your PayPal accounts - your Smartphone 2002 is ready to be shipped! All confirmed pre-orders should make sure to check the Inboxes today (I know, it's Independence Day but isn't it a good reason to go online?). I have already sent most PayPal invoices.
Please welcome a lot of new Smartphone members to the community! :-D If you haven't ordered so far your PPCW.Net i-Mate but interested as well in getting your Microsoft Windows Mobile Smartphone right before your carrier decides to launch it, see here for all details.
That's great news, Arn. I can't wait to get my hands on the i-mate. Thanks!

Will you be notifying us of our FEDEX tracking number once you ship our phone so that we will know you received our PayPal payment and can track the shipment?

just checked the FedEx details and it just arrived in Paris, so the journey is half way completed to Ireland with an ETA of lunchtime tomorrow - can't wait to get my hands on it

It arrived this morning - (in less than 24hours!) charged it up - and was surfing and emaling after 2 minutes configuring GPRS access - of course the first bookmark I added was www.PPCW.net
Now to get used to the Smartphone UI and get ActiveSync set-up.

Wow... That's fast... 8O This is less than 24 hours indeed and also other packages are already in Memphis/TN , Amsterdam and other locations all over the world... FedEx seems to deliver faster than I've expected... ;-)
So go for it DubWireless and enjoy. BTW: please don't blame me for the UI if you don't know how to use it - I'm just shipping it... ;-)
But a good tip I give every new Smartphone owner is to use the Microsoft Smartphone more form a PC point of view and less from a GSM terminal point of view... ;-)
Enjoy and keep us updated how it works for you!

I propose a litlle match in who has received it the fastest :-) Mine arrive after exactly 24 hours and 56 minutes. A Big Thumbs Up for Arne.
Although initially something went wrong with the shipments and we all had to wait until Arne could lay his hands on the d*** things, once he finally got them, he was very quick in sending them all off to their rightful (and longing) owners. The i-Mate rocks, puts it's predecessor to shame, well, almost, and Arne did a great job. Excellent service Arne, vielen dank!

Can i buy and use the IMate with my Sprint PCS Vison plan?(out of Boston, MA) I have been waiting since I first heard of the smartphone back in Jan 2002. I can't wait any more. Please let me know if it's going to be compatiable with my current provider. I have a Paypal account. Thanks Arne. Michael

@Michael J: No, Sprint PCS isn't supported with the PPCW.Net i-Mate because it's working based on GSM, not on Sprint's PCS (different standards!).
The only way to use this phone is to use a T-Mobile or Cingular or similar GSM carrier!
