Rob, can your post some sort of sourcing on the TEO upgrade plan, specifically that purchasers of TEO 2.0 will receive a free upgrade to 3.0? I've checked the TEO website, Josh's blog and the TabletPCBuzz software forums, but haven't seen anything.
It's not that I don't trust know.
I've E-mailed Josh and asked him to send me the web page.

Until then, you can trust me that it is true. I'll buy your copy of teo 2.x if its' not true.
Rob Bushway is a good friend of mine and I had asked him to make the announcement for me on Tablet PC Buzz but he had already stepped down as a moderator. Rest assured he got the information directly from me. I have just been very busy and catching up on alot of work. I've been almost completely out of touch with the online community for the last month or so.

Posts have now been made on both my blog and the TEO forum and I will add it to the TEO web site later today. Thanks for your interest in TEO!
Thanks guys. In retrospect Rob, I shouldn't have bugged you with this, I should have just waited, knowing that it would cross/-posted eventually. You've got enough on your mind without being pestered.

But none the less, thanks for the confirmation Rob and Josh. I'm ordered now. My tablet hasn't even arrived (I'm waiting for my wife to bring it back to Kosovo with her), but EVERYONE says this is an must-have app. Thanks again and Rob, my prayers are with you.
