    He wrote

    yeah, had 2 go pvt to find time to do some real work totally unrelated 2 Pre - tks. I'm not a good fiction writer, btw
    I guess being put on the spot by some sites made many people send him tweets regarding the Pre.

    When I asked about stalking, I was only kidding, fellas. Whether or not he is legit is debatable. However, I didn't expect him to have to fend off folks. I'm almost sorry I started this thread.

    Hes CEO of an IT-related company.
    im sure he can write all this techie stuff.

    but if he has to tweet about work to certain people then I understand why he keeps private.

    he can still give ONE picture.

    But he could take a slightly wider-angle picture next to his kitchen sink, or better yet, take a picture of himself in the mirror with the Pre. That would be pretty convincing.
    yeah most of the pictures ive seen were always supported from Palm. CES, Jimmy Fallon, etc...

    but someone using at home..not yet..

    Just goes to show how desperate many have become for just a bit of info on the device. Palm/Sprint need to give a little. Info that is.

    No doubt. I was a bit surprised at his openness about "reviewing" his Pre. He may have had second thoughts or been told to cool it.

    But yeah, attacking his veracity with no evidence is not the way to go.

    $299 might be too much

    I guess it depends on what he considers mixed use, but the other tweets have made it sound like he's using it relatively heavily, and 8 hours and going strong with that sort of usage sounds like wishful thinking based on what we know about the battery. Sure, as I've mentioned before, there's a great power management system as part of the chipset being used, but there's only so much an 1150mAh battery can do, since the radios are going to use the most power anyway.

    And honestly, if this is a scam, it would make sense. He's drumming up more publicity for his company right now than he could any other way.

    Edit: He also claims he's tested WiMax phones. Has there been any WiMax phone by any company even announced for the US yet?
    Plus isn't WiMax only available in Baltimore and one other city...definitely not Providence...?

    That's definitely a bit, but i might still buy if they let me keep my existing plan which already include *everything* but cheaper.

    Now, if it is 299 and THEN an Everything plan required, i won't buy then.

    Don't think its legit..

    $299 is way to high IMO.

    Glad Palm shut that one down...

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.

    Which is fiction, April 30th or Jim Van's Pre? Not clear. This is not a terribly convincing denial.

    Didn't see this anywhere, so here goes nothin:

    Hello Belvoir! Welcome to PreCentral/TC forums. Thanks for the post.

    We do happen to be following this fellow pretty closely though. He's all in our Predictions and Speculations thread. He's also got two other posts regarding his Twitters in our main Palm Pre thread.

    Regardless though. Welcome to TC!

    Haw! Whatever can get us a drop of news on this sucker is fair to me. You guys can go infiltrate the manufacturer in China and steal a few if you want my permission... Just make sure you come drop by Texas and let me take a peek right afterwards.

    The LogicComm guy is starting to anger the Goat. It just makes no sense to me. He's one of the top guys of his company. Why would he put his company's reputation at risk like this by posting complete lies? Palm's twitters are now starting to indicate that this guy is just full of it. Also, the dude never got pictures out there before he locked down his profile.

    April 30th seems like a really odd date.
    299$ seems high even for the Goat. (I believe 249$ is the perfect price on launch, even though many disagree)
    Where is a pic?
    Vague comments with no insights or specifics.
    No NDA? I think nearly all beta testers would be under NDA. If someone just came out and blabbed their mouth like this they would get the pants sued off of them.

    Yet the guy seems legit and has creds.

    AAARRRRGH!

    Agreed, I don't believe that guy either. Palm and Sprint would be knocking his door down asking for the Pre back!
