    should begin shipping in about 10 days. probably sprint telesales before palm.

    I doubt this is the reason. I mean...it's not like they are going to go through 300,000 boxes in the wharehouse and reload software. This is something they will have to patch. Delaying the release doesn't help much for software issues at this point...

    People are now finally getting emails of their orders going through and getting ready for shipping from Palm... so it does not look like the above is the case.

    Sicne sprint went to the trouble twice this month to issue press releases fro their own HQ and spin to all the tech press that they would release before VZN you can bet there is some kind of problem.

    I am sorry not to have been more specific.
    1) the problem could be any one of scores of interface issues that could be corrected on the sprint side without patching the software on the phone
    2) We don't know that sprint even has the units in their own warehouse. I have gotten drp ships on sprint phones from maker warehouses.

    I don't want to be pessimistic. I will be happy as a pig if I get my handsets either from palm or sprint on tues or wednesday. I plan to check my two sprint stores on sunday a.m. as well. But I have seen this plenty of times before.

    Hey Now -

    I just got my "order began processing" email from Palm for the Sprint 700p. I ordered my 700p on 5/22/06 @ 8:49am. I guess this means Tues or Wed delivery.

    Jimmie, unless you know something, my guess is that it's not shipping today.

    When the 600s were shipped, they told us they had to ship by 4 PM to get overnight. I guess the early deadline was because they were shipping in bulk? It's sooooo sad I remember that from fall 2003, but I do.

    Why can't they ship them tonight or tomorrow? It could be Tuesday if they went out tomorrow.

    I ordered mine at 5:01pm not 5:22pm. I guess I won't be getting the email until tomorrow then because I noticed everyone who ordered in the AM hours are the ones who are getting it.

    My gut feel right now is that the order will start processing today, actual shipping will be tuesday for an overnight delivery on Wednesday morning

    ... of course, that's just a gut feel, don't take it as gospel... In fact, I wish it would ship today and arrive tomorrow but I don't believe anymore

    I think Palm is going to be able to ship all the orders they took for Sprint. I'm sure you guys will get the email soon. It's kind of ridiculous we're getting so excitred because they've acknowledged our orders,lol. I can't imagine the giddiness around here when they actually say they shipped them

    Another botched release from Palm. I don't know who was responsible for choosing the 28th as a release date (probably Sprint), but it was a bad choice. Consider this: If Palm can't deliver sooner than Sprint, then that means that they can't ship until Friday (assuming Saturday delivery isn't included in their overnight price) for delivery on Tuesday the 30th (after the holiday) or Tuesday for delivery on Wednesday the 31st.

    Now that's all well and good if that was the plan and how it had to be, but if so, what were they possibly thinking by offering the device for pre-sale on their site the week before and proclaiming "free overnight shipping"?!? IMO, they deserve all of the bashing they're getting by getting people worked up expecting and wanting delivery this week when they probably knew from the get-go that we wouldn't be getting them until Wednesday. Sure, early-adopters are a small piece of their pie, but we're a very vocal part.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Palm just upated expected shipping dates. Sprint Treo 700p in stock, and Verizon 3-5 days.
