    OK, I just got back a little while ago so I had to catch up on several pages and finally saw the pics. As the resident skeptic, I have to ask if there's still some chance that those pics are just Photoshopped versions of the Treo 700w. Now, I don't doubt that a 700p exists. Shadowmite pretty much confirmed it before. But I don't get how they've reassigned the buttons. Why is there a dedicated Phone button *and* a green button where the Home button used to be? Isn't that redundant?

    Shadowmite, can you confirm if this is how the model you saw looked?

    Jeez... I read this kind of stuff about ebay scams every day.
    Actually, the craiglist connection was speculation, unless I missed something. I do not believe Merlyn has stated in any way shape or form where or how he obtained the device.

    I am actually still skeptical that this is the real deal. It may be a real device, but I doubt it's a pending release.

    Right, however someone who claims to know Merlyn did say he was told he bought through craigslist and another poster verifed that craigslist had one for sale as of 1 Feb and the seller was called and he sold it already. Yes, these all could be lies, but also could be true.

    I agree about the button Scott. That was one of the most important improvements imo on the 650 keyboard. I hpe they don't move the home and menu button to the bottum...that would stink imo..

    OK, so if he DID buy it from someone on craigslist, that leaves 2 questions.

    1. Why is he being secretive about that?
    2. Why would he care about the numbers etched into the front?

    Hmmm, I thought Merlyn was in San Jose. San Jose and Sacramento are a couple of hours apart.

    Absolutely. It was never intended to be sighting of a new phone. The 800p? Please. This one now has no name and is somehow activated. For whatever reason the pictures contain some type of obfuscation.

    This is great. Good for you Merlyn. This thread could surpass mine (and I didn't even try) with ease.

    I don't really know what other proof is necessary. Shadowmite did confirm that he's answered all his questions better than someone who was just trying to pull a hoax could. Is it at all possible that it's photoshop? I'll say sure, but I think there's a vast amount of evidence (from the pictures, to the EXIF data, to the answering of Shadowmite's very specific questions) that says it's real.
