    doh! Hope it's not true...
    Palm III > HS Visor > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 750 > Treo Pro > PrePlus GSM

    If in fact this is true, then this will blow for 4Q and holiday sales for P1.

    This wouldn't surprise me (but very bad organisation on the part of P1) at all since I seem to recall a distinct lack of T600's when they first came out too. How many people had to wait weeks to get a T600? Perhaps it was just my part of the US that had the problems but I do seem to recall going into Sprint stores and finding out that they didn't have any in stock and that they couldn't even provide an estimate delivery date. Hope this isn't the case for the T650, but again, it wouldn't surprise me. Good job I can live with my T600 until things settle down and I can see just how much of an improvement the T650 is over the T600.

    Wasn't "Grover" the name of that purple McDonald's character? I know the name sounds familiar but I can't remember.

    MadMonkey: Wasn't Grover a character in Seasame Street?

    It seems that the pushback is for the retail launch.....I wonder if it impacts corporate launch?

    Boy there are some stupid Americans on this board (nothing personal). GC was twice elected president....won, lost, won.....this dude has either returned from the dead or has an obession with America's fattest President ever

    Snoot: Well, I'm not an American so I don't take it personally. Have no idea who GC is and quite frankly, couldn't give a toss :-D

    Just FYI, I was referring to Grovers spelling of famous (noticed I capitalised the U) and from that was referring that HE obviously isn't American. So, if you didn't pick up on that then I will have to agree, there are some stupid Americans (nothing personal)

    Please note that no one has announced any sort of release date for The next Great Thing thus what some "analyst" firm says about same literally means nothing.

    When PalmOne says "Coming in the next few weeks!" THEN you can discuss delays, etc.

    Til then, It comes when It comes.
