    Better get back on topic (since I'm the one who led us astray):

    If it is the 700p coming in June, with 700w to follow, why would Sprint want to support two identical phones with different OS's? Shadowmite - care to enlighten us?

    . . . . . to not let Verizon have a monopoly in that arena?? (that arena being the big corporate users that only want Windows in their shops) . . . . . . . . at least that is what we have been lead to believe about the 700W . . . . . .

    Dates can shift around -- whatever OS was on the device, is still on the device. Let's all now remember what was on Merlyn's device and what Shadowmite said. . . . .

    Plain and Simple; If it is Windows I will not get it! But I will really be disappointed!

    Nice try aenigma, but I think I scooped you by a few months:

    Is someone trying to imply that the Sprint model is going to be WM 5 ?

    What does Verizon's 6 month exclusive on a WM5 have to do with Sprint's alleged Palm OS? It is kinda fishy that the Sprint model is being released almost exactly 6 months after Verizon's. So is the exclusive on the 700 series or the 700 series with WM5?

    The rumor of 700W on Sprint has been around for a while. I know a Sprint regional manager who is standing his ground and keeps telling me that the new Treo is a windows device and it was to be released in late May but that date is pushed back by about 2 weeks. I posted this on the 17th of March during the famous n4cer document. He will not comment on Merlyns phone except to say it was a real phone, he knows where the phone originated and knows the individual who contacted Merlyn to get the phone back (from Davis CA if Merlyn is on and can verify that is where it happened). Even with verifying Merlyn had a POS phone he says expect a windows device in the stores in late May to Mid June.

    To think that device will be anything but PalmOS is ludicrous. We know that a Sprint branded 700p was leaked, we have seen internal release documents, we have seen registry components for it, and on top of all that, we have Palm execs stating that they plan on further palm OS devices.

    The only question now is when it will be released. I am not holding May 28th as a rock solid release date, but a target only. Who knows what manufacturing/shipping delays would occur?

    My only question is when it will be released on Vz. Sprint reception where I work absolutely sucks. Everyone in my office with Sprint is complaining about it. Now, I was told by a source that Sprint will not have an exclusivity on the 700p, but that doesn't mean much. Vz may still have their own ongoing contract with the 700w that would prevent them from releasing the p. There are other CDMA carriers that could get it, but few people care about those.

    As I stated earlier I think it will be POS, I am just relaying what a regional manager keeps telling me. The only written communication I saw was an e-mail from the regional manager to the store managers.

    I'm not saying the Palm execs lied, it's my take that Frankengarnet will be relegated to the Lowrider series, which may crop up all over, who knows, with WM5 on the 700 and 800 (Hollywood) series. Kind of like Tungsten vs. Zire in their original forms.

    We'll see in the next 60 days.

    I think most of us have accepted that a Sprint 700P will be released, with the understanding that the specs might be a bit "up in the air".

    I'm just concerned that we might have put it on pedestal that is too high

    How do you run a company (Sprint) when part of your people think the release is going to be PalmOS and another part think it is going to be WM5?

    The only rational answer is this: they are releasing both at the same time !!

    (However, my sources are clear about it being only one for now and it being PalmOS.)

    Gotta love Sprint.

    Cheers, Perry.




    P.S. for dstrauss: If it is both at the same time -- do we claim a draw -- or the winner is the first version listed in the Press Release?
