    He took it everywhere he went. He was pretty much attached to it.

    Well, actually I did ask the dstrauss, geatches and gharrod to believe --- something about friends don't let friends be wrong. . . . . . and wanting them to have the joy of being right.. . . . . . .

    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    I have an uncle with only one ball, too. Well, that's the rumor. And unlike with the 700p, I don't care to see any evidence.

    Ya see...that's why I'm striving for 200 posts in a week. No one will be able to accuse me of being a "Drive By" once I start posting about the 700P I've been using for the past month....

    I want to be known as the "Parking Lot" poster...

    Against my better judgement I went ahead with the call. You first have to understand that I am not questioning Perry's sources and I have not asked him to reveal his because I respect his longevity in here and his objectivity. What peeved me this afternoon was that I felt Perry asked me why I needed any other sources. To date no one has given me proof positive of the existance of this product. Sadly after the phone call I have two distinct thoughts. First I still have no confirmation (this guy was damned good). Second is that I truly am more of a believer then before.

    First things first. As I stated the other day this is not a Palm or Sprint (or any other carrier) employee. He is not Palm Secret Police or anything like that but this is someone which by now would have undeniable proof of the device.

    He did not admit the 700P exists. He did not deny it exists. Based on my knowledge of his personality that says a lot to me that he has information verifying it exists. There was a lot of dancing going on. There was mention timeframes projected may be slightly off. No idea if off means by days, weeks or months inthis case. It was brought to my attention to pay sepecific attention to two items. Palm accounting periods and the fact Palm is doing a dog and pony show to investment houses (some of us saw the press release on this today in email) which lends me to believe they may make an announcement the week of May 22nd. I pressed to see if this was the case and got a resounding "no comment." I did not get into specifics of how much ram and so forth as that was not the purpose of my call. I can't put my finger on why but I get the distinct feeling that much of the secrecy has not to do with any sort of exclusivity but that there maybe an extra level of QC or production issues. Maybe they want to make sure the production units are up to par or the production levels can meet demand or something else I am not aware of. It was mentioned in passing that there was an unacceptable level of returns with previous models and that was one of the challenges any vendor would have to deal with to contain costs.

    Thats it. In a nutshell I am leaning toward becoming a convert.

    Gharrod thanks for coming through and sharing, it's more fun on this side (knowing the 700p is on it's way)

    I don't want to speak for Perry, but I can tell you that is NOT what Perry said, nor meant.

    Thanks for the info gharrod.

    I remain optimistic that by mid June, the 700p will be.

    The 3rd quote was directed at me and my Sprint contact. I was asked not to give her name, and I'm sure Gharrod's source also asked not to release their name, or did they? It's cool if you can't or don't want to give it out.
