    I'm still hoping for something to happen on the 17th - even if it's just an awesome commercial debut. So don't be too disappointed Pedro - it should be coming soon. Who knows? Maybe Sprint/Palm is playing with our minds and giving leaks of June 7th on purpose just to throw us off from May 17th

    By the way - thanks to your friends for helping clear some fire brushes here in California: Denied:1up! Software ()

    Does Best Buy usually get a newly launched Sprint phone the same day as Sprint stores launch it or do they receive it after Sprint stores? Just wondering how that works. I thought that Sprint stores have exclusive sales of the phone before other retailers.

    Best Buy started selling the Instinct on or around Sprint stores' launch date.

    How long do you think before they start releasing some more info? With the launch window down to a month and a half max, you think we would have seen more by now.

    We haven't seen anything about the app store yet, be nice to get a glimpse of that.

    I remember being quite smitten with some of my middle school teachers. At least you have the summer to recuperate.

    Anyway...I could care less when it comes out. It's not like I'm checking out the iphone or any other option. I won't go winmob or bb, and Android phone is quite a bit aways.

    I purchased my Instinct S30 three days prior to the "official" release date from Best Buy.

    I would be more involved with PreCentral, if I wasn't completing research for my dissertation. As it stands, I haven't seen the "leaked" training video and don't have time to check out the Best Buy screen shots. It might be an assumption to think that teachers have time to recuperate. Just a thought. Kind of like when some assume that Palm has screwed up a "launch" that hasn't even occurred. But that's such a small issue, right?

    Yeah, I have a teacher friend of mind that just started grad school. So much for this summer off. People on here have their own created expectations and are just disappointed that Palm and Sprint hasn't met them. It's their own dumb fault. It's just a phone after all.

    Juusssttt so long as no one calls it a "dumb" phone. *grrrr, snap, snap*

    Sorry, just finished watching Bolt.

    So you're not getting a Pre?

He then confirmed that the on-sale date he had listed was "the second week of June", being, of course, June 7th.

    I know this is an unconfirmed source, but he has no reason to lie to me and he hadn't even heard of the Pre until he looked it up.

    Just thought I'd pass it along. This doesn't affect when Sprint starts selling it, but it looks pretty solid to me that Best Buy won't be selling it until at least June 7th.
    I find it interesting that a store manager of Best Buy has never heard of the Pre. How can that be?

    Mobile phones are only a small portion of profits from a store like BB. Sprint makes up only a small portion of their mobile phone sales. Pre, at this point, makes up none of Sprint's sales. I can see how a manager at an electronics store wouldn't be aware of it.
  17. #1877  
    They don't necessarily have to be "informed". When you shop at BB, it's best that YOU be informed because you may get sold a bill of goods at some BBs.

    The one in my area seems pretty decent, but there was another one who's "tech support" left a LOT to be desired.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Just to give a little perspective on our waiting, at least the Pre isn't going the way of this phone:

    Good info! Hopefully they'll "accidently" start selling some before the release date like the Treo Pro. I'd actually consider buying from Best buy if they did that.

    The best buy by me sold me the HTC Touch Pro 2 weeks before the sprint store had them .
