    either that email is a lie (I've spoken with Ed, and that does not sound like him), or Ed is lying.

    He told me to my face it would ship within a week of the first roadshow.

    He said the same thing last year, and was off by several weeks. He's a marketing type that tends to overpromise stuff like that.

    What makes you think that no one from the first road show (SF) hasn't received their unit yet?

    I'm not exactly sure what type of proof you want. Showing you my email address and the palmone guys' emails doesn't really proove anything. But here it is anyway (with my address taken out)

    Next time, have some faith in your fellow man...

    Well it would be nice to hear from them don't you think. I honestly don't think they would be able not to post if they had received their units already.

    But maybe, that's just me.

    [note - the multitude of "Me, too!" posts are sufficent confirmation for me - YMMV - but none of those was around at the time of my original post in this thread]
    Interesting reply from someone who only day trades.....

    I removed the palm guys' email addresses. I know they are available elsewhere but I'd feel bad if they started getting a ton of email because of us. I hope you all understand.

    It still bugs me that it took a few weeks since an announcement to set a firm date range for shipment.

    To be honest, I was unsure whether to include them or not, but since you can find about a dozen palmone email addresses and just substitute names, I figured it wasn't a big deal. Anyway, you are right. I should have never included them.

    Ed and Todd: Sorry if it caused a problem for you guys.

    It's not a big deal, really. I just figured if we tick off PLMO, it better be over something more substantive than this. :-)

    Great!!!

    You mean that TREO 650 in-depth review is coming finally!?

    Zing!

    What a great thread! Thanks, StevenB! I mean it! (You can always tell a great thread because Seldom's venomous puss spew can't ruin them). I know, I know, wrong, but there it is. I couldn't help myself.

    I just want to be clear. PalmOne will ship to Sprint, or to people who purchased from the PalmOne website, or to viennachannels, or to Cingular, or to everyone?

    This email came directly - word for word - from P1.

    I am interpreting this email to mean shipments to the people... IMHO.

    Cingular has some accessories listed in its internal catalog, but no physical units in its central warehouse. There has been no info about its release at all. I suspect 1st quarter for cingular/AT&T.

    We cannot reference any AT&T wesite "coming soon" stuff anymore. Cingular/AT&T are from here forward only selling Cingular's phones. There will be no more AT&T phones ever again. I do not know what they are going to do with the stock left over, but we cannot get it anymore.

    Not sure I agree drdoom. Why should SV be lambasted for doubting the email. There has been post after post of people who supposedly heard the "truth". Even after StevenB "proved" himself by posting the email headers I still see similar vagueness. A range of dates, no mention of exactly how many orders they will fill during that range of dates, etc. So SV has some bite, big deal. He asked for some more proof and he got some. He also has been asking for that in-depth review. I, for one, hope that he is successful. I wish more people would ask for that review or an answer as to why we haven't seen one yet....

    First, check the threads. I just started one ASKING for the review from Michael. Second, I just like to mess with Seldom. Also, please don't ever side with him again. You are probably a very intelligent person, with some wonderful ideas. By coming to Seldom's defense I might start to think otherwise. While I realize you probably don't care what I think, let me explain how this affects me! Because I might start to equate you with Seldom, I might start to think all your posts were trite garbage, not worth my time. This might in turn cause me to skip over some incredible application you're talking about that just might one day allow me to, I don't know, save the president. Because you sided with Seldom I ignored you, and know the president is dead. Is that what you want?

    I went to a Cingular store today after the Roadshow and inquired about the 650. The manager told me that they didn't know when they would be getting them, but she did say they had the best service. I asked how much that service would cost, as I want a GMS phone, and she told me $45 a month for the unlimited data plan! Isn't that a bit high? I showed her one of their brochures that listed internet service for $20, but was emphatically told that that plan was only for regular cell phones, not smartphones. Is anyone familiar with Cingular's plans? Is she right? That sounds high compared to T-Mobile's $20 a month.

    Cingular promo: MEdia Works unlimited (web, 1500 SMS, 200 MMS) $20/month good until end of '04. Applies to both Treo 600 and 650. Yes, this is EDGE, too. This manager is uninformed. Call various stores/CSR's until you get it... rest assured it's out there. Make them do their jobs.
