    Just talked with a dude that has a friend in the real estate business. He said this lady told him that a Sprint logistics employee came in one month ago and signed a lease for 50,000 square feet of space to store "merchandise". She told her boyfriend who is a total uber gadget geek, and they broke into the warehouse last night (well first they had to sneak past the security guard who was asleep at the front door).

    The first thing they noticed was a bunch of moldy Treo 600 boxes right up front. Hundreds of them from floor to ceiling. The dude has seen lots of movies, and thought this might be a false wall. Sure enough after some digging and moving boxes, he was able to crawl through the boxes. Low and behold, he found thousands, no wait, tens of thousands, of brand new beautiful boxes containing Palm Pres, Touchstone chargers, SD cards and adapters, desktop sync cables, optional 12 hour talk time batteries, $300 mail in rebate forms, documents containing instructions for setting up the Pre on existing SERO accounts, 32 GB memory upgrade packages, and last but not least, a memo marked "highly confidential" that officially stated that the Pres would be available starting May 17th through telesales.

    Oh by the way, they borrowed a couple of the Pres for testing, and I was able to get one this morning. I feel compelled to to abide by the NDA that all of the other reviewers are following, but a detailed review will follow in a few days. I can tell you that I typed this post on my brand new Pre!

    Just thought you guys might be interested. But please keep it a secret, we wouldn't want Apple to find out.

    It's a joke, not a particularly good one, but a joke nonetheless.

    That completely contradicts what my cousins wife's gardener heard from his aunt's friend who attended a class with a person who knows someone that worked as a carpenter for a guy that works at Sprint.

    That person said the Pre would be released today. Unless it doesn't, in which case it will probably be in the first half of 2009.
