    It's Friday or Tuesday, Palm said if they ship out Friday we wouldn't get them until Tuesday due to the holiday. This is what the rep told me earlier today when he checked my order.

    But isn't overnight w/Saturday delivery possible different than standard overnight (workweek only)? Palm's footing the bill here, so I'm sure they're going with the cheaper overnight option. Plus, if they've given strict orders for Palm stores not to sell before the 28th, which is when Sprint will start selling theirs, it seems to me that they're bowing to Sprint's wishes here and aren't going to give anyone a 700p before the 28th if at all possible. My prediction is that all of us who ordered from Palm will be lucky if they ship them out on Friday for us to receive on Tuesday.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Technological superiority has never won a product battle. If that were the case we would all be flying in supersonic Concordes and using Apple computers.

    The key to winning the battle is a combination of price, convenience, marketing, sound business model and a bit of luck.

    Headake why don't you buddies at Palm a call, and see if there's any news since they just updated the Sprint 700p shipping times if ordered now to 2-3 days. We ordered on Monday. You don't have to, but I know it'll make you feel better

    You guys paint a pretty positive picture. Couldn't the 2-3 days mean, 2-3 days from today or any order date in the future?????

    Why would palm ship on friday and pay for overnight so that you can get on Tuesday. That is a waste of money, poor business move.

    thats not Palm's fault. It's the way FedEx does business.

    Standard overnight is NOT the same as EXPRESS Overnight w/ Saturday Delivery

    All i gotta say, is I am going to sob like Treolo's avatar if the order I canceled (from Palm) would have scored me one sooner than a retail store O_o

    Look, I've accepted the fact that there will be many hours of 'I have the 700p' posts from people who buy at retail stores on Sunday. That's ok.

    I'll be getting it for $100 less and no tax, and for that, I can wait until Tuesday/Wednesday.

    (Although I too am hoping they ship today...)

    Not really a company like PALM probably only pays just a few bucks for overnight service from FEDEX since they are PowerShippers. thats why they can afford to send Overnight Pkgs for free ,because in reality they are not spending much due to the Shipping discounts FEDEX gives them.

    That's because there is.

    I just called Palm and was told that the 2-3 days shipping time referred to "pre-shipping."
    I was told that no 700Ps will actually be shipped until next week.
