Within 30 minutes I found links to the Palm Pre on both Palm and Sprint's websites here on TC and preregistered there.

    Yep. Before I got to the Sprint store, neither Palm nor Sprint had anything Pre-related available/accessible on their sites.

    By the time I stirred up that (favorable) hornets nest by telling them where they could find info about the Pro, they'd also checked Sprint's site and found that it was NOW (then) possible to preregister.

    Again, I think they were just keeping a super-tight lid on things by having a buffer between the end of their announcement and the time that Representative SuchnSuch pushes the button that makes Pre info go live.
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    Haha! I knew that it sounded suspiciously familiar when they first announced that!

    Here's hoping they're forced to change the name to something more nova...and less webOS.
    Visor Edge + VisorPhone -> Samsung i300 -> Treo 300 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Treo 755

    I doubt very seriously Palm didn't have its lawyers searching for trademarks. Then again, Apple apparently didn't do a very good job of it, so maybe Palm did fail.

    I'm out of my mind. But feel free to leave a message.
