    If it ships in 1 week.. that means next monday. Next Monday is memorial day, I doubt UPS/FedEx works on those days. So we get ours shipped on Tuesday and we receieve on Wednesday.
    I wonder if I was better off just getting it from a Sprint Store they might have it in stock by Friday..
    Did we jump the gun and ordered it thinking we might get it first and it turns out its quite the opposite?

    I posted this earlier, but I guess it didnt get any attention so please someone tell me if this wrong.

    I remember ordering my 650 on the Palm website only to find out that people were able to order through Sprint the next day and receive them overnight. So, people may be able to have theirs by Tuesday, but I really don't care. Whichever 700 gets here first, I will just return the other one...we are okay. I don't think we jumped the gun...we are "early adopters" and don't act sane in times like these!!!!!!

    Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I recall ordering my Treo 650 from Palm the minute it showed up on their site a year and a half ago... I thought I would be one of the first to receive the phone, but close to shipping time, my order status flipped to "not in stock," and I wound up getting one from Sprint and cancelling my Palm order.

    I sure hope that doesn't happen to any of us this time - I have to think we're the first 10-20 people to order the 700p...I mean, who else would be eyeballing the situation at midnight pacific time on a Sunday night/Monday morning?

    Love being on the west side myself, since you don't have to stay up too late to watch the NBA Playoffs. But doesn't the east side get their 700p in their hands first since the mailman gets a head start over there?

    Yeah, rjmoose, it sure could - but Palm was really cool about cancelling the order, and the difference would only have been a week or two. But I was really jonesing for that 320X320 screen, and chose to get my fix ASAP from Sprint.

    As a side note, I just received a Slingbox for my birthday. I have a friend who has his Slingbox set up with his Treo 700w, and the low-rez screen just killed it for me. I know there isn't (and probably won't be) a Slingbox program for Palm - which is sad, but not a deal-breaker for me. I'm sticking with the Palm OS for the screen, the speed, the ease of use and the software library.

    The countdown has really begun, eh?

    The OP should add a poll to this thread so we can get a quasi-accurate count of how many people have ordered thus far from palm.com

    What's Palm's policy on dead pixels? That's the only thing I'm worried about.

    I'd be surprised if they didn't work on a slingbox for palmos, I mean despite losing market share, it's still big. In cities I see TONS of people with treos everywhere.

    Poll added. Is that what you had in mind?

    Anybody knows if we will be able to use a Sprint upgrade discount after we place this order through Palm? I believe I have a $75 off.

    I know it's not important at all, but do Treos ordered through Palm have the carrier's logo on it?

    I asked them about it when I spoke to their 2nd level technical support last week. Their software is only Windows compatible, and I operate mostly on Macs - so I was inquiring about the possibility of Mac software and followed up with questions about Palm/Treo.

    At this point, they only have mobile software for WM 5.0 PPC Edition, and WM 5.0 Smartphone Edition. He told me that Mac software will be released and is now in Beta. It should be ready for primetime in 2-4 months. This tech also explained to me that they have no plans to support Palm right now, mainly because their Slingbox requires a Wifi connection.

    The Treo 700w can use a wifi card; and while the Slingbox software does work with EVDO, it only streams at up to about 15 frames per second - which sucks IMO. A friend of mine showed me his Slingbox playing on his Treo 700w on EVDO, and it didn't look very good (also the low rez screen didn't help matters). With his wifi card in, however, it looked a bit better... I confess I thought about buying a 700w simply for the slingbox capablity - but it just wasn't good enough for me to go to the "dark side."

    Since the latest push from Palm is the non-wifi compatible Treo 700p, the Slingbox folks aren't looking in our direction; even though there are other wifi friendly Palm devices. Now, if Palm added wifi compatibility to the FrankenGarnet OS/Treo 700p, Slingbox might change their tune... But, sadly, the industry seems to be moving in the direction of WM despite our loyalty to Palm OS products - and Slingbox seems to be allocating resources accordingly.

    I hope they reconsider - it would be really cool!
