    Agreed with all the fun sarcasm.

    I really don't think I could deal with yet another scripted demo clone. If they are going to CTIA, I pray they give us something new. This Goat will grind his horns off if I have to have the same watered-down info regurgetated on me again.

    No new news from LogicComm (Our new testing wunderboy)

    He said he was busy on Friday and will posts pics and info today. Let's hope this is true. This Goat needs to sign off and go to bed now. Hopefully when I wake up we'll have all sorts of wonderful news for me to dig through. Have a good day all.

    Hello All!!

    Been snooping around the site for a while now and decided to hop aboard.
    I did however want to share a bit of info I recieved this weekend. I was at my local mall and stopped by the Sprint kiosk. I asked to look at the Touch Pro and messed a little about and told the Rep I was waiting on the Pre. She said "Oh Ya! That should be out here in a couple weeks.". I asked who her source was and she just said her manager said that it would release "The first or middle of April". I cannot (of course) verify the legitimacy or accuracy of the aforementioned rep, but thought I would post up since it seems a lot of Sprint reps seem to be getting fed the same release info.

    I doubt sincerely that the release could possibly be only two weeks away--there are too many things that we don't see. We would need some blurry shots, probably some "coming soon" commercials from Sprint, more details, etc. It still feels at least a month away to me, perhaps more.

    These Sprint reps are totally unreliable--none of them have the same date. I doubt seriously that they're getting any information from Sprint other than the first half of 09. Otherwise we would see some consistency.

    I just was hearing a lot of April 15th dates being thrown around the last couple weeks.

    I completely agree with the idea of it not happening, but just thought I would throw what I heard from my local outlet.

    no commeraical / no advertisement kills a april rlrlease date. even if it was april 30, sprint / palm would want more then 30 days to advertise.

    Please note: My spelling sucks and I'm to lazy to check it.

    Are you sure? Is there a precedent you are comparing against?

    I think word of mouth advertising has done quite well for them already. And I think Sprint needs this phone out asap a lot more than they need a good advertising campaign for it.

    Good article on making the Pre launch a success: Preparing for the Pre: Palm and Sprint must get it right - Network World

    Couple of key quotes from the article

    Everything depends, say a squad of analysts who track the mobile space, on a smooth execution, a marketing campaign that can fuel user anticipation, a user “experience” with both device and network that will satisfy that anticipation, and enthusiastic backing from software developers.
    “The key success factors are: execution, execution, execution,” says Winthrop, of Strategy Analytics. “Make sure the device is solid, the OS is snappy and stable – no nasty bugs! – and that [3G] reception is strong.”

    HOW TO: Zip/Unzip via Pre/Pixi using Terminal
    HOW TO: Modify DTMF audio (webOS 1.4.5 or earlier)

    Here's another tiny little tidbit. This guy apparently works for Sprint. (Wish I knew how high up on the chain he was) He implies that he has been able to play with one.

    Thien Tran (Darkflt) on Twitter

    Might want to keep an eye on this one.

    I'm guessing he's with the Data Support Specialist Training dept. based on the website linked to his twitter account.

    Poking around further, I found out he leads some of the internal company Training sessions. Here's a Treo Pro session he's scheduled for...

    I may have taken the liberty of registering as a Data Support specialist by chance and took a looksy at their upcoming calendar for training. Didn't see anything 'Pre' related, but it's something I'm going to keep an eye on.

    I *****'d out names of listed employees for their privacy, save one small exception ot T Tran, which was the twitter owner who linked his twitter page to his work website in the first place to show how I cam about this info.


    Sadly, no Pre, Nova, Castle, or WebOs searches came up with anything. Event calendar seems to run through the end of May :'(
