    I'm expecting announcements of new hardware at CES. We'll see them show up in the FCC closer to actual launch though...

    How close to launch do these things go through the FCC?

    I think companies can hide their filings for an amount of time. So we should see them soon.......

    Ok, I'll get it out of the way now. We'll see an FCC filing "in the coming months"....

    unless they plan to ship on the day they announce them, they can ask the FCC to keep the filing confidential. Considering the current level of secrecy at Palm/HP, It would make sense that they make a huge deal out of the "new phone every two months" at CES and then start filing. That would be consistent with the time between when the Pre2 showed up and became available.

    That would leave plenty of time to start shipping them before the end of Q1...

    Also, the notion of "every other month" probably is a general statement and could be more of an average. Otherwise everyone here will show up every 60 days to declare that Palm lied again.

    The detail I want to hear more than anything is how many carriers will launch every month. They have to reach some level of ubiquity to scale, and they have to do SOMETHING to prevent the angry response that happens when the newest device isn't offered by a particular carrier. Just look at all the Sprint users that want the Pre2 that hasn't even arrived at VZW.

    yep, they've replaced that with "during 2011".

    I believe companies can have FCC filings hidden (not released publicly) when they file. Just because nothing is listed for a company doesn't mean nothing was filed.

    I saw the Pre2 show up in the FCC the day it was announced (a couple hours after Palm announced it), but the European model showed up weeks earlier.

    I check the FCC records on a daily basis for Palm and HP, so if anything clears for either, I'll know about it (and soon thereafter, so will P|C and all of you).

    In fact, I was the first to even mention the Pre2 NA GSM and CDMA models on the FCC's site and then Engadget took the credit for my find (no surprise there).
