    OK, it's ten days to Feb. 9th. What are the chances HP/Palm has provided evaluation Topaz tablets/slates and smartphones to our favorite blogs so they can be ready with reviews?

    I doubt they'll be sending out eval units until AFTER the Feb9 announcement...

    they want to keep leaks to a minimum.

    I think 1-2 guys at Engadget might have seen the devices. Nilay has been doing a lot of the Palm posts recently, and I feel like Josh or Chris would love to be writing those posts. Maybe they are under NDAs?

    They wouldn't have them this early, but perhaps a few days before the 9th.

    Agreed..

    Handing out eval units from now would kill the wow factor

    If and when PreCentral gets evaluation units, I'm sure that the editors will not be telling us about it/them until reviews are released.

    One thing is for sure. NDA's would be used to prevent any leaking, and there would likely be huge legal ramifications with any leaks.

    No but it's sometimes easy to tell when they have them, as news goes a lot slower and they stop reporting on 'leaks'.

    i doubt they have sent out evaluation units... nothing that would steal thunder from the big launch...

    They will have all the key journalists in one room for the event, so they can get hands-on there for a "first look" article and then get eval units for in-depth analysis as a follow-up.

    Interestingly, I've noticed it's gotten rather quiet around here when it comes to news. Perhaps the pre-production unit showed up on Saturday?

    That's what I've been thinking. Could be the impact of NDAs. We'll find out in the ...coming days.

    HP wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot like that . Eval units will go out after the announcements go forth !!!

    PalmCast 133 - Tablet Leak Extravaganza, Part 2 | PreCentral.net | The #1 Palm Pre and Pixi Community

    In the podcast(1:22) Dieter talks about something really exciting that he's been waiting for since May 2007 happening/comming on Thursday(27th), but he can't talk about it yet. No idea what happened back then, but it's way before the release of the Pre. Maybe he's got a hot date ;-)

    Sounds about right. The Foleo was announced May 2007.

    Maybe he's been waiting for Palm software on a non-phone device since then?

    He did say that he got a Foleo just a few days ago. Check out his twitter timeline about 5 days ago:
