    I noticed this bit of information on the front page...

    ..An updated OS is currently undergoing testing at Sprint and presumably will hit the GSM version too....

    If the phone were not close to being launched, Sprint would not yet be doing their internal testing. I have a friend who does this sort of testing for another US carrier and he said when they begin their testing they start about one month before the phone is released. When they are doing their testing, training is writing documents for employee use. If they find any major bugs then it could take longer than a month, depending on how long it takes the manufacturer to update the software to fix the problems. My guess is if WebOS is stable and working with Sprint's network and software (NFL, SprintTV, Navigation, etc) we will see the Pre in about a month.

    Carrier customization and testing takes about a month, if everything goes well!

    So, late March looks likely.

    Does anyone remember how much time was between the first commercials for the iphone and when it was actually launched? Since Palm hasn't started any national advertising, I thought this might be relevant.

    The first iPhone ads landed on June 29, 2007 - the iPhone itself went on sale on two days later. But that was different - even the people living under rocks on planets in different galaxies knew that the iPhone was coming.

    I imagine that the Pre advertising campaign will hit full force about two weeks before launch, so maybe we've got just two weeks before the public at large is introduced to the Pre.

    I have made numerous post on TC. Visited Sprint store today and the manager who has a Pro, told me that he had been told that we would see the Pre in September. I told him if that were true, it would be suicide for Palm. I asked him about the company EOL document and I do not think that he heard the question or he did not respond to it. He was busy on a tech support call getting a phone to get on the internet. I am just relaying what he says, I am still hopeful for a March or April release date.

    i'm sure he had no clue what he was talking about. If the Pre was scheduled to be released later than June then Palm would've mentioned it.
