    Yeah, please. Don't say "Its official" if its not ACTUALLY official

    Sorry, I can't believe I misspelled "Official"...

    Also if you read the original article, it could be possible they are going to do a Saturday release. (derived from rumor of Best Buy's Trial release or whatever on the 7th) This would make sense because it would give them another day on Sunday for people to come out- before work day on Monday. Everything seems to be fitting together. Now if only we had a leak of the price, but as I have said before, that might be a surprise...

    My only real concern left is that Sprint and Palm wait until Jon Rubinstein's address at All Things D on May 26-28 to make this official, which I think is a horrible idea. I'd reaaaaaaaally like to see Pre-specific advertising more than 7-10 days out, and I'd like to see those ads with a specific release date.

    Since the initial shipments aren't going to be that plentiful, it would be might counterproductive for Sprint/Palm to launch a big blitz only to have people go to pick these babies up and find that they're sold out. This ain't a Wii.

    I just qualified for $150 upgrade credit. I'd like to apologize for holding things up until I was eligible, and thank you all for your patience. Palm, Sprint, it's ok now, you can release any time now, no problem.

    I'd also like to point out that June 5 is my birthday (true!) , so that's a good date.

    Actually, we don't really know how big the shipments are going to be. All that's been out there is speculation on inventory.

    No June 5 is not a good date, any time after today would be fine!!

    but Happy Birthday

    I am surprised they would even release that knowing it has spelling errors.

    Its like spotting those phising emails where most words longer than 4 letters are misspelled. You learn early on to pass them over.

    So you know for a fact that the document isn't official? Damn!

    As Aero noted, too much of it has come from the Asian trade press for me to dismiss it as just "speculation." I don't believe Palm capped it or anything...I think they genuinely had issues with some components and could only get half a million or less of these puppies ready for June.

    according to what he posted over at his website, it's not real.
    Post Other sites this desperate for dates?
    Well, I never thought I would see it... Other sites online which are usually known for being the "insider" for phone info are starting to slip.

    What dare I be talking about? Read this news posting from BGR very carefully.

    Let me tell you something right now, Sprint does not send out corporate release date information in this format or with spelling errors. I think someone's "ninja" needs new glasses and maybe a spell check.

    Oh and as others have pointed out across the web, saying a "ninja" gave you inside information is like saying master sensei gave you the Sprint black belt while everyone else was still on yellow.

    I get it, only because of the link to bestbuy that was linked earlier with the pre ad in it.

    Well, it's either 'ninjas' or zero flow of information until official announcement. Which one do you want?

    that's a good question. I'm content with the June 7th release info. And I get to order it on June 4th, awesome, otherwise, I'll wait. But I probably will not wait much past July 1st, regardless.
