He told me the 28th and when I asked him how many he was getting (I've been on his list of people to call when they come in) he said "I asked for as many as they'll send me." (whatever that means)

    So, as of yesterday afternoon, he still thought he'd get them this weekend--but who knows

    was at my local store today they had the display board out but did not have any pricing asked to purchase the 700 and was told they will be in by the end of the month so i joked and said it is the end of the month and he claims to have it by middle of next week.

    Grand Rapids, MI is an affiliate market for Sprint vs. corporate. (I assume this is like a franchise situation.)

    Anyway -- the Alpine store manager has been saying that he will get the 700P one week later than the corporate stores -- as that is how it always goes. As well, he says he never knows what he is getting until he sees it on the "order form", which arrives not much before the shipment.

    FWIW -- he said he was looking at the 4th vs. the 28th.

    Cheers, Perry.

    It's not $100 cheaper from Palm... there was a $100 off for developers but they stopped giving that out unless you've been signed up for that for 60 days. It's still $649.00.

    Perry and the Dragon, both confirming the 4th of June. Hmmmm, is Sprint having product testing issues? Or did Palm screw up and get the shipment of VZW's first and was stuck with shipping them to VZW?

    I think this is all back room deals between Palm and VZW. I'm guessing, as has been suggested by others, that this was part of the 700p deal.

    Let's face it VZW is running TV ads, their web site is promoting it...and they are delivering product. They have a HUGE advantage here and I don't think it's simply because Stroll and Palm are screwed up, or being conservative, or just lazy...I think there's a reason for the VZW advantage...

    Makes as much sense as anything else I've read around here (okay...given what I've read around it...it makes much MORE sense than anything I've read around here).

    Totally OT - but gharrod -- are those guys FILLING the burrito?

Dragon feel free to chime in on this one.

    In case you were wondering, I have yet to hear from our area Palm Representative about the delay. I dont know if i'm being ignored, or they cant or wont tell. Just thought I'd give you an update.
