    I have a buddy who works in the tech industry. He is over in Vegas for the CTIA convention & he just sent me a direct message in Twitter. He said that he overheard some talk (possibly from Sprint folk) about the Pre being delayed until AFTER 1st half of 2009.

    He over heard that Palm & Sprint are planning to reveal pricing & the availability of the SDK.

    APRIL FOOLS!!

    That wouldn't really surprise me as its not that unusual for a new flagship product to see delays. I'm assuming thats why Palm never set a date, rather a period since they're not sure IF they can deliver on time. Although I'm sure many on here will be upset since they all have their hopes up for an Apr/May/Jun launch. I always assume there will be delays, so if its actually on time, its just bonus.

    On a separate note, on Engadget, there's a post about Palm making an annoucement of some sort later today. It might be the SDK or something else, but I bet you it won't be the release date as that will most likely come from Sprint.

    Is he April Fooling you...
    or you April Fooling us?


    whats the point of giving pricing if we have to wait until after June...If they says its $299 people would rather go buy the new iPHONE for $199. Even then alot of people are getting impatient waiting...

    Palm is in over their head if there is a delay. They has promised us for sometime the 1st half. Stocks will tumble. Wish the new Snap from HTC were a touch screen phone and it's looks sleeker than the Treo Pro

    saw this at engadget this morning; our board should be full of information tonight!!

    HTC Snap snaps to life, coming to US as S522

    but if the Pre is delayed (it's just Palm all over again)!!!!

    I suggest an April Fool's thread.

    For instance I heard from a friend of a former roomate of a cousin of Hesse that the Pre is actually going to include a pico projector, but will have to ditch the 3.5 jack to do it.

    What if Pre itself is a massive April Fool's Day joke that they've been warming up since January?

    What if they've been using a prototype HTC device with just a demo shell they call "WebOS" sitting on top of Window Mobile 6.5?

    Based on this information, I have just gone online and ordered an iPhone, Blackberry Storm, the Android phone, and a Treo Pro via FedEx overnight shipping. Also, I permanantly erased a WebOS app that I was working on even though it was 75% finished.

    I am sure this reputable source "just" sent this message because he REALLY happened to be near a crowd of Sprint folks at 6AM openly discussing this and heard this.

    Really.

    I didn't think people in Vegas slept, so there would actually not be a wake up time.
    If you found my post useful then please sign up for a Dropbox Account, I could use the extra 250mb of storage.
