3 Big data security analytics techniques

Palm unveiled its latest inventory-clearing scheme yesterday: a 'buy shedloads and get some free' promotion geared toward the PDA pioneer's corporate customers.

Surprise, surprise, the deal only applies to Palm's older models: the Vx, VIIx, IIIc, m100 and m105 - the slick new m50x family is not included.

Interested parties need to call up their local Palm dealer - so far the offer is only available in the US and Canada - between 2 July and 31 July. Buyers have to take 50 PDAs, submit their sales receipt to Palm which will then mail out 15 Vx, VIIx or IIIc machines, or ten m100 or m105s.

Naturally, the deal does not apply to resellers keen to get some extra stock gratis.

Palm says it will send out the freebie PDAs in "four to six weeks", which essentially means that if you buy your 50 machines in July, you'll get the free ones in August - all of which will be included in Palm's first quarter, fiscal 2002 results, of course.

Oh, and if you only want ten Vxs, a second offer will ensure you get $500 back if you also buy ten Palm foldable keyboards. Again, the offer only applies to US and Candian buyers, but this time you have until 30 October, and you have to wait six to eight weeks for your cheque. Handy that: claim now, and Palm doesn't have to pay you back until Q2. ®
