I'm looking for more info regarding GRE at the Las Vegas CES this year and how their doing?
I remember reading in the GRE PSR-900 thread a few pre-posts including the one I'm quoting below.
However, are there any others that can share some more details ? Any others visit their booth and
have some take away thoughts and observations to share with the folks on this RR forum ?
I personally have noted that GRE/RS branded scanners and GRE/RS RSU parts are drying up.
The popular to order 4 x AA yellow battery tray is not even listed as a part available for the many
different models it came with as opposed to just indicating "out of stock" for the current status.
The Pro-106/197, 164/163, 18, 444(racing) 404/405 are all still "Active" in the RS Inventory.
Only the Pro-404 HH Basic Scanner is still actually available through D2U as of yesterday.
One would think that if RS knows the inside scoop lets say that GRE is definately no more
then one would expect that all the models listed would indicate "Disco" status and not "Active" ?
Lots of Uniden models have recently filled the void left by RS/GRE such as the 396,125 and HP-1's ...
So is it correct basically that the Chinese Gov't wanted to "re-develope" the area that included
GRE's old factory ? So was GRE burdened beyond it's resources by having to relocate and restart up
a production factory somewhere else and is either still somewhere in that process or in a limbo status ?
Another wonder of mine is if RS holds or owns any intelectual property rights to it's RS/GRE OEM models
that say if GRECOM were no more and only if, then RS could have another private brand factory in China
reproduce these same models ? How does that issue work in the OEM private brand world these days ?
Bottom line: Not looking for guesses, rather more actual folks that stopped by the GRE booth at CES ?
I feel that to uproot and relocate operations could really take some time and money and not be quick ?
It would GREat to hear some POST CES show GRECOM booth feedback and or see some actual pictures
taken during this years show !
OK, back to the "wait and you'll find out someday" game ... Las Vegas CES GRECOM booth pics to post anyone ?

With no current operations, I doubt that they are there, but would be as interested...well, OK, more interested...as anyone to know what they were showing if they are there.
