    Ciao.
    Bye. :wave:

    I'll be sticking around. CTIA week brought about new 3rd party app details, new details on how they hope to have apps intigrate with their software, original OS emulation, and early release of the SDK, and a new video on their site.

    This week thus far has introduced the first TV and print Ad's including the Pre.

    A "release date" is not the end all be all announcement for me personally. They essentially told us "end of June" while giving themselves leeway to possibly suprise us. As such, I just take "June" as the release date and anything earlie than that I'm taking as a surprise and bonus, so I don't really care too much when they make the release date known as long as its by known by May.

    CTIA week refreshed my interest, not diminished it.

    But to each their own, have fun.

    I love how everyone is nice around here until you say something negative about the Pre. Howard Stern was a technophile that had tons of followers until he picked another smartphone and now he's a perv. Getting tired of waiting? Don't let the door hit you on the way out. LOL.

    Ads are comming out in NYT and WSJ, Commercials during NCAA and Pre featured on Sprint's "Now" thingamajig. I think this all point to a launch that is weeks, not months, away.

    The Survivor scenario seems more credible, mid May.
    We're getting there, 6 weeks hopefully.

    Unfortunately, since there is no GSM version even predicted for the Pre, I might have to go with the Pro just so I feel like I'm in the 21st century. I'm still on my Treo 680 which seems archaic next to my work Blackberry Bold. I had the Treo 750 for my work phone which I liked more than the 680, but it decided to die. I don't see any point in moving to Sprint just to have the Pre. Palm needs to get on the ball with a GSM version since Europe could give a crap about CDMA.

    Uh? No GSM version? What do you think they introduced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February? They just never said which carrier they are going to go with. On one of the demos they take the back cover off and you can see a Vodafone sim card inside.

    So yeah...there WILL be a GSM version, but most likely not until the second half of the year.

    During CES I fell in love with the Palm Pre, and knew that one day it would be mine. At the same time my friend fell for the HTC Touch Pro 2. Both were not given a release date at CES.

    It has now been several months since CES and there has been a constant flow of new information from Palm, Sprint and 3rd parties. Palm has done a wonderful job of providing information for enthusiasts to discuss on forums like this one.

    Compare that to the information about the Touch Pro 2. From what I have seen there is no new information out there, only what was shown at CES.

    It is easy to lose perspective when waiting for something that you really want, but I feel lucky that Palm are making a deliberate effort to keep me engaged.
    I agree with you, but I have also think that the last week or two weeks before CTIA and Web2.0 were hell searching for pre news.

    All I saw were stupid tidbits about how there stock prices were doing and stupid little nuances about... blah blah

    Anyways. I do think that we are now past the proverbial "wall" runners talk about and we're in the finish stretch for beloved pre. I think the next coming weeks are going to be extremely exciting, sprint is rolling out the add campaign, and developers will most likely start giving us hints about there apps and what they think of the pre.

    Keep in mind, some of the app makers know the date of the pre, or how else would they be able to definitively say "our app will be ready for the release of the pre"

    It's easy if your app is ready now!

    every piece of information until the phone comes out is a prediction or speculation.
