    Question: when they make the announcement, will they give all of the details at that point? Or will it just be the shipping date, and perhaps the price?
    If the info is going to be something that is going to change the game like the Wii (control perspective), then I think we will only get the release date and price. We will probably see another announcement 2 weeks before launch with the "oh and by the way" announcement so Apple won't have enough time to copy it before the conference.

    I actually don't think they are likely to release price and release date without all the details. A price without anything else will lead to speculation about if it is worth it and are they charging too much for what you get. Release date has similar pitfalls of speculation. I suspect they will do a final announcement detailing specs and then end with price point and a release date. They will probably do this about 2-3 weeks in advance of launch with an ad blitz in between.

    My Sprint rep said he was having a web meeting tomorrow, hes not sure what theyre going to tell him.

    Just found out OK is starting PRE school! The first of the groups is going to school determined by the super. Only bad news she said release has been extended to the end of May or the beginning of June. OK so if no one else has brought this update cool. Not sure because I came straight there to let you know. My only advise is make sure you let sprint know at sprint that you want to be notified I'm understanding this may have priority over who gets one first.

    Pricing & release are both judgemental.. sprint has to make it affordable they have too much on the line.

    AS SOON as telesales pre-ordering goes live my Pre will be ordered. I'm pretty sure that there will be major supply issues.

    Hey now guys. If we all agree that we're going to pre-order our beloved phone the second it's available then one of us may not get our order in on time. Now I'm a sly and speedy goat... But I really don't want to compete with all of you speedy whiper-snappers. So I think we'll have to come up with a new system:

    Goat is allowed to order it first. Then I will contact Patchs so he may order. Then patches can contact lastdetailwd, etc. We can just keep passing the rally stick around until we all get to pre-order the Pre.

    The most important thing about this plan is that THE GOAT gets to order first.

    Of course.

    While it really sucks the way they have been delivering news about the Pre, it has allowed them to answer questions regarding what they have released so far and maybe not cause such a huge panic. If you found out all the details back in January such as no copy/paste, no SERO, no video recording you'd be completely turned off. Hats off to them. I'm still interested.

    For the millionth time, there is copy and paste. You can copy and paste out of any text entry box.The only thing you can't do is copy from the body of a webpage.

    Out of all groups I guess you have to ask why sprint would discount the phone to the group they have the least interest in discounting such as yourself in that situation? Especially given a finite number of Pre. I suppose anything is possible but from Sprint's standpoint you are a loss until one year or more into contract

    MY guess why they are being so tight lip is mainly because of Apple and there "We are better then you" commercials. Basically what they are doing is making it so apple or anyone else for that matter has much time to fight back. Hard to fight back when the fight has yet to start.
