    I noticed on the 680 article on this website that the Treo 680 will not ship until December 1st. But, the Palm press release does not say this.

    It says:
    "The Treo 680 smartphone, announced on Oct. 12, can be preordered today and will be available at Palm U.S. retail stores after Dec. 1, just in time for the holidays."

    This does not mean that pre-orders are not shipping until Dec 1st. Where did this shipping date info come from?

    You're right, it doesn't mean that it won't ship until the 1st. But it doesn't mean that it won't ship even later than that, either. Just by calling it a "preorder", Palm is suggesting that it won't be shipping right away. If they start shipping by the 1st, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Notice they said it will reach retail AFTER the 1st. That could be the 10th, could be the 24th. One thing it won't be is BEFORE the 1st.

    But you're right; the fulfillment of preorders could come a few days sooner. Just try not to get your hopes up.

    Good thing I ordered mine last night then, or really early this morning.

    I called the San Francisco Palm store today. The guy said that they would have the colored unlocked 680's before the website would deliver them. I am not sure who to believe but i can wait till the store gets them in. I kinda want to wait and see a crimson one before i buy it.

    Which store? The new one in the San Francisco Centre? I may have to stop by and get a gander at the colors myself. I doubt he's right about getting them before they ship from the web, but if he is, I'm more than happy to cancel my web order.

    December 1st is right in the middle of the 1-2 week for delivery window. December 5th would be 2 weeks exactly.

    Does anyone who ordered from Palm know if they have a signature requirement on the package? I'm moving buildings at work on December 11th and I'd rather ship it home to avoid the confusion over which building to ship to but no one is home during the day at my house to sign.

    Palm typically ships UPS - which means you can have your driver waive all signatures - if you know him/her.
