    We all know its coming , its still no Pre, but the gap is almost closed , and for APPLE fanboys cut and paste is a huge deal.

    But take a look at the date , its June 2009 folks.
    Sprint and PALM better ready the Pre in April.

    Apple does things well and does them fast.
    I hoping the folks at infinite loop get to sleep 8 hours.
    Just hope when they release the Pre that it will have less bugs than the 700p. The Treo's 600 and 650's were fairly good devices but lacking on screen resolution ect. Palm cannot afford to make anymore mistakes! But they have a history of such!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If the Pre is one day late (Palm's stock will tumble, may tumble anyway)

    The 650 had a 320x320 screen didnt it? It took a long time for anything else to match that.

    Wouldn't an aluminum casing on a phone block a lot of the reception?

    I hope the Pre comes out on or before 5/1. That is when I can upgrade my dying Centro.

    Has any announcement been made on release timeframe for the GSM Pre?

    If the CDMA Pre is 1H09, it sounds like the GSM version will be very late. Definitely after the next iPhone model releases in June/July

    The only GSM version will be on Voda in Europe and the 3G band isn't compatible with the ATT's 850. But no annoucement has been made.

    I don't have Twitter, so could someone ask Palm if they will be at CTIA in April?

    Lets hope for a quick and positive reply. I mean hell, it's in Vegas, so maybe if they don't attend, we'll get some news out of Sprint?

    So, lets pause and look at what we know and try to figure out a ballpark figure for a release date.
    We've heard the name of the factory which will make the Pre.
    We've heard they won't start until the end of this month.
    We've heard they are making the TV commercials.
    Still no word on FCC approval, although we know that may not be public knowledge.
    We know some Sprint employees are training on it.
    We know, duh, it should be out at the latest, end of June.
    So, I'm guessing late May.
    The good thing is, we have 103 days until June 30, so at least every day, it's getting closer.
    One last thing, years ago, I met Bill Murray at a ballgame.
    I asked him when his next movie was coming out.
    His reply as only Bill Murray could say it, "When it's finished."
    Guess, that's when we'll see the Pre, lol.

    I think you're confusing being open and honest with spilling company secrets, release dates.... so on and so forth. Apple neither confirms nor denies any rumors and they have been known to deny rumors til the day before release date. I really don't understand this, just because they're not satisfying certain gadget geeks' every single question means they're not open and honest.

    ^ Major blogs (including PreCentral, sorry) got that factory announcement wrong.

    The factory expected shipments to start in March, not production.

    I wasn't even talking about "company secrets". Though it would be nice to get a release date so those of us holding onto Treos for years have a clue as to when they can expect to upgrade, I expect that they won't just give out a release date on twitter or facebook. The question remains though, what kinds of questions they ARE willing to answer. Will they answer specific SDK questions? No. Will they answer battery life expectations? No. ... I could go on with that all day. The fact is that they try and make a presence on twitter and facebook to supposedly "answer questions", but that never happens. Whats your view on why Palm bothers with Twitter and facebook?

    Shipments!? Woo Hoo! Now that's a nugget of fun info if I've ever heard it. Probably means units will be in warehouses by early April. Now that's hot.
