    I'll bet they'd do something similar on the 700P...maybe not right now so close to launch...but in a month or so I'd think you could score one for $200 or less if you play the game with them.

    I guess I'm assuming you're already with Sprint?

    I am so hoping they'll let me do the $100 mail-in rebate. At $50 for the phone I might just have to keep my 650 and sell the 6700 on e-bay and pocket the difference for a nextgen WM device later this year...
    But still, I could give the "Match this" routine with the 6700 as well. This is why I said it was more than just a dollar figure. It would take going outside of Sprint (not leaving them, but buying the Treo elsewhere) to get more discounts. Palm Developer, Palm Trade-In, etc, and a few other deals from friends in the know. However, if I could score a 700p for $200 even if the 6700 were at equal price, the Palm gets serious consideration.

    Cranky?

    Look who's calling the kettle black!?!

    And, does this mean you admit that that going to WM5 guarantees to make one cranky? Do you assume that just because someone owns a WM5 they must be a cranky soul?

    I proclaim to the world here and now...I am leaving my Treo 650 behind. No more sprouts. No more organically grown lucky charms. No more hormone-free, pesticide-free, naturally flavored corn-based toilet paper for me! No. I am no longer pure and innocent for I have forsaken my Treo family for the forbidden fruit. Call me Adam...for I stray. I shall sin and sin hard....

    I am windows. Hear me...I am now cranky!

    [EDIT: just an interesting side note: This is my 699th post. My very next post, if you can believe it, will be 700. How apt is that? The single solitary post before 700 forsakes a 700 in my future.]

    Welcome to the ranks of the impure and unwashed. The antichrist has claimed your soul as you traverse the darkside of WM5. Pay homage to Bill...

    I guess more correctly I should have said humorless and near blinded by the prospect of coming to the dark side which addresses the future of this converged marketplace.

    Do you go to a Sprint store on Sunday morning for confession?
