Any post containing a Palm upcoming release info gets jumped on by naysayers w/o source material so one better provide such to avoid lynching. That source was therefore provided to save my neck from rope burns.

    I wouldn't wan't to be placed in a position however of having to respond to every assertion made by an author, especially when I don't quote anything else that he / she might write. The post is contained in the "Future Treos" section (the 700w is not a future Treo) and in a thread talking about when a POS Treo (the 700w is not POS) will be released. Wouldn't you agree that a discussion about the 700w shortcomings therefore belongs somewhere else ?

    There is another thread on the boards in the 700w section which specifically addresses the statements you are referring to. I think your comments are legitimate (said so myself) but would be more appropriately placed there.

    Just so I'm clear, you quote the author when he agrees with your point, but you disavow other points the author makes that you don't agree with, but still decide to reference the article?

    And, a 3-day weekend at that. The 29th is Memorial Day.

    Maybe the Treo700P has a product placement in XMen3 (get it 3/Treo???)...

    Wait, now Perry is getting a call from the secret police from the movie studio wondering where the product placement rumor came from...

    5/28/06ish -- Hoax or no?

    The ironic thing here is Perry starts this while being the only one concrete proof here, which he can't share...............

    So I say "5/28/06ish -- Hoax or no? .................... Perry, you tell us."

    I stopped accepting someones "word" after - "I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinski" among many others. Are you telling me you're more honest than Bill Clinton, Perry?

    He sort of screwed that up for others -- didn't he?

    Your comment is justified -- only time tell.

    Cheers, Perry

    I believe they are going to release something because it will be the 2nd quarter. If they are releasing 4 phones this year, 1 per quarter seems possible.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Perry may not tell you that he is...But I am telling you.

    No...we are talking about apples and I say that this year's New York apples are terrible and I quote a story about fruit that talks about apples. The story goes on to talk about 127 other fruits of the world. I ain't saying I agree with what he says about the other 127 fruits, I ain't sayin I disagree. But when 1) the thread is entitled "apples"....2) my only statement is about apples, and 3) the excerpt quote is about apples, how the heck do we wind up talking about oranges, pinappes and kiwi fruit get into the conversation ?

    There are other threads covering the remaining points in the article and for the sake of forum rules, the idea is to stay "on topic". This thread is about the release date of the 700p and it ahs nothing to do with any failings, correctable or otehrwise of the 700w.

    Are you safely a mile away yet? Perry has the trust and confidence of users of all stripes on this board. Your "attitude" is about as bad as your choice of comparison to Clinton.

    Is there a chance that Perry's source is wrong? Yes.

    Is there a chance Perry is lying about what he was told? No

    Perry will be cordial in response; more so than most of the rest of us. Question a person's source, but not their character, when you choose to criticize.

    Thanks Dad. First and foremost, I wasn't questioning Perry's character. I am a big fan of Perry's and look forward to his enthusiasm every day. I was making a simple point that I do not take someone's word just because they say so, regardless who it is - a point that obviously eluded you.

    Please lose the holier than thou attitude and lighten up, remember this is a board to have a little fun and discuss our hobby. Most everything I say has a twinge of sarcasm and I try (albeit poorly this time) to lighten the mood, if you don't appreciate it, don't read it.
