What we are all doing here is avoiding real work. To jump up and down on your keyboard demanding this and that and spouting opinions as if anyone really cared what we had to say is absurd. This reality check is now over. Go about you business.
    I guess that since you are tired of all this drooling over "just a phone," you'll be leaving this thread now, no longer perpetuating this nonsense?

    Nononononono - you're not cutting in line in front of me!!!!!

    Seriously, all you say is correct, but there's a few billion dollars of market cap that says this is serious. Palm knows that people stop buying when new products are announced. So the leaks are treated very seriously, as they should be. On May 10th, with the product release imminent, there will probably not be repurcussions-you're only losing a few days worth of sales from a few tech bums that probably already have or don't want 650s. If everyone was leaking info on the Hollywood or the LinuxTreo, there would be hell to pay. Note how we haven't heard from our Hollywood informant again.

    Some of us won't be fooled - some of us have been warning the tribe about this result from day one (well, almost day one...I do have a Starbuck's/Best Buy card riding on it). http://discussion.treocentral.com/im...es/biggrin.gif

    I take that as a compliment but you wouldn't believe who I worked for if I told you. ;o)

    The last line was an attempt to lighten what sounded heavy and legal to that point. Just trying to deal in facts and it got way legal-sounding.

    Ah, but dstrauss, you're breaking your own rules. These forums are for everyone, including those like sir_mycroft and attempt to interject reason and refocus people on the realities of how the non-smartphone-obsessed public feels. It's also for nancyboy whiners who like to complain that 20 pages of fluff and 3 pages of substances is a poor mix. And it's for the off-topic ramblers. And the people with questions. And the people with answers.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Easy now folks! How do we KNOW this is a screenshot from a sprint rep at work. We can tell it's a windows 2k machine. We can tell there is a spreadsheet with what looks like telephone data in it. It has some aps open we think we recognize but even that can be faked.

    The domain in the browser on one of the earlier supposed screenshots is easy to fake too...

    The spreadsheet looks markedly different at the bottom where the "700p" supposedly showed up. Different font, different color, different font weight. I'm not taking the bait on that yet. Too easy to fake screenshots... even easier than photoshoping a phone in my opinion.

    Who's to say that anonymous84 and OneWing aren't OneNSame since one seems to be working so hard to affirm the other's status as a true Sprint employee... has the scent of a con to me.

    How many Slinkies were there? The sheer volume of people that have tried to post "evidence" here must mean something.

    Remember -- I was recently told by a telesales rep that the 700PPPPPPPPPPPPPP would be availble to order on May 28th.

    It's done.

    Cheers, Perry
    I don't see the Pope on line tonight. Now if HE were to tell me that the 700P is a real device an will be sold on May 28th I would get behind it totally. Ok, I can see Haggar right now creating a log in as "The Pope."

    I do take issue with people claiming I am trying to gain from all of this and then Godguy comes in and he does have something to gain from this. I hope Good doesn't have an NDA.
