    PreThinking picked up on Coal's May 3 post in the SprintGuru's forum to more or less confirm the start date for training. A not-so-popular thread cited this PreThinking's story, but still only from the training angle.

    Inside.Sprint.Now's blog's image and some Sprint admin docs then lent credence to support the June 7 rumor even more...

    Strangely enough, I can't find anyone citing Coal's starting comments in his post, before he goes into descriptions on training. He more or less states that June 7 is going to be the date, doesn't he?:

    Well, we all know that 6-7-09 is an interesting date across the Internet for people waiting for the release of something that is one of the most anticipated phones in a while.

    How about a teaser. Soon you will get to know the P100 a lot better. What is the P100 you ask? It is the internal name for the upcoming Pre.
    "We all know"? Note that Coal is admin (owner?) in the forum...not staff...but he has been the source of some of those leaked planning documents describing two windows. Isn't this just now the confirmation?

    Wow. So it's going to be June 7. That sucks. I wish this thing would get here. I am starting to lose my patience.

    I just took a look, and Coal added this edit:
    EDIT: I am throwing in one more little tid-bit for those interested... Training for the Palm Pre officially ends 6-5-09. The last WEEK DAY before the launch.
    So he's said it (twice) without actually saying "The Pre will be released on 6/7." Maybe his NDA was written poorly or something--hard to believe he can hint so strongly and not be violating his NDA. But I digress.

    Also, another user in that same thread says that training has already started today via iLearn, which might be Sprint's internal computer training system.

    I'm reading people got fired, he'd better be careful, Not a good economy to be fired in. I hope his real name is camouflaged.

    Looks like that guy named Gonzales on Twitter got whacked too. Though I'm not sure he was an employee, maybe a tester.

    P.S. I'm either blind or the thread got merged, but I'm certain there was a post about Gonzales twittering, then they said the Twitter account got pulled or something.

    Found the thread, it must have been buried on another page. http://discussion.treocentral.com/pa...e-has-pre.html

    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!

    I assumed the Gonzalez guy was an actor that was hired for the commercial.
    If so, he was probably replaced instantly.

    Gonzalez' website says that he is an "amateur photographer and filmmaker." I can't find it anymore since his Twitter feed is gone.

    OK, is the Skull & Bones Society involved here? Federal Gov't? Martians? The Others? I smell a conspiracy! Jamie Gonzalez tweeted and has now disappeared. These guys are good - making little Stevie Jobs look like an amateur!

    His site is (now was) jaimetheking.com
    It now redirects to a page & says the site doesn't exist.

    I guess for Jaime when it rains, it RAINS!

    From what I understand, he doesn't actually work for Sprint, but I'd imagine he's been explicitly told by people in his forums that do.

    In any case, glad to read that you, Coal, haven't been "whacked". (After all, Soprano's find might take this to mean different things...)

    Joined 2008, and only two posts? A silent partner then. I read your other post; kudos for me then, as I gave the credit where it's due.

    If you are truly not done with the fun, according to reliable sources (you, Coal) there's only 30 calendar days to share it! Why wait for a rainy day? Now would be great!!!!
