    Could someone from Palm have purchased it to try to put it back under wraps?
    I think the opposite...forums, leaks, etc. are an entire new way of grassroots marketing. Look at the buzz this has generated! And Palm hasn't had to spend anything less than a preproduction model of their new Treo!

    Quite possibly someone associate with Sprint or Palm. But the buzz and free initial tech support has been great for Palm and Sprint. Very sneaky if you ask me and very smart if it were the case.

    But it's too late for that. The pics are already out there. In fact, I'm quite suprised no one has leaked the pics posted on the irc last night as well...

    In that case I hope we can still benefit more from this with more, detailed information leaked from the new buyer

    This may be a bit pre-mature in asking, but what are the chances of putting 700p drivers/BT stacks/whatever to good use in the 650? If Shadowmite has indeed received a ROM dump, I don't see why something couldn't be worked out...granted my programming knowledge is very limited. Also, I hope I'm not just repeating something from the IRC last night...I couldn't attend. Some of us had to be at work at 630 AM today.

    I agree to a point. They love the buzz, but they also love to have control over when information gets out. If there's too much buzz about the 700p, sales of the 650 will suffer.

    I won't give them the credit for being that smart :-/

    I tend to think it's guerrilla marketing as well and could easily be a timed release per the overall marketing plan. If true, Palm might have underestimated what Merlin3D/shadowmite/others could do to get the info out.

    Given the 700w is already out, it seems concern over 650 sales would be moot. If anything, that's the interesting bit - less than a month later, we have news about the 700p. If Palm sees the target market as OS agnostic, they might worry the 700p coming so soon might confuse potential customers and take away 700w sales. On the other hand, they may have done it to appease their loyal customer base (being most of us).

    Without releasing the chat pics, can someone at least say what they depicted, or would that also violate the agreement?

    I don't think it would be a violation of the agreement to say that they showed the front of the 700p, including the keys at the bottom that had been chopped off in the previous pictures...

    Also, the first pic was kinda blurry and shot in the dark. Apparently Merlyn was with his drunk girlfriend....well you use you imagination...
