Has anyone gotten a feeling about the reps that are contacting us and whether they are just order takers or have some empathy about us long term Palm/webOS people?
Besides relating stock features or specs, I have not yet gotten much warm and fuzzy back. I guess they are under probably heavy No-No's with the unbelievable secrecy, but I have not found much personallity as I have tried to develop some extra comradarie with stories of my long term 'palm' ownerships and semi-humorous business suggestions that are passed over.
I have not had a personal call, but am 'assured' I will be the first call Sunday. Which brings up a question, does anyone have any feeling as to how this will work? I do not have my kryptonite bracelet with a magic number that puts me way up in the cue. If I get a call at 9 does that mean I am first? Or is there some automated system that is going on line Sunday [no overtime] and going to take orders randomly from multiple reps contacts with no priority.
Or is priority really out the window, as there is said no one will get Touchpad until just before holiday weekend, it gives them the opportunity to fill up inventory as needed, and ship everything overnight on June 30? Is 'shipping in the priority of how you order', or just a sales pitch because they have multiple hundreds of thousands that will go out for July 1 to orders and the rest will get shipped to retailers. Wow, so many thoughts and no answers will be possible until it is on your doorstep and then none of this conjecture will have meaning.
Especially if it is as 'perfect' as HP hopes everything will be forgotten [at least for a few dayz].
