    He also stated battery life was excellent compared to his Touch Pro, "WAY BETTER". He also went on to say that the were given very tight instructions not to discuss the Pre or anything else. He stated he would be receiving more training on Monday. One thing he did say is that Sprint is trying to get enough Touch Stones in, he said that they were worried that they would not have enough or any at launch. I asked him if knew how many phones they would have in, and he said he couldn't say, he said there store (Corporate Store) was expecting at least 100-200 people the 1st day, he said there store had been inundated with people calling and coming in asking about the Pre. I asked him if Premier Customers would get 1st dibs, he stated no, no one will have 1st dibs. There's no waiting list or anything else. He said they will be sold on a 1st come 1st serve basis only. I asked him if I could see it, and he said it can't leave the back room at all. He said its a great device, feels solid, slider is good, OS is awesome and the web browsing is very fast. He also confirmed that the keyboard is like the Treo Pro, except spaced out a little more. He was a cool guy but he was scared to say to much about it out of fear of being fired or getting in trouble. Before I left he stated "You'll know more next week, trust me."
    I'm guessing (yes, guessing!) that Premier customers will have an opportunity to order first via the Web or telesales. I'm guessing (yes, guessing!) it won't be via store purchases. So, in my mind, Premier customers will essentially be able to get the phone without having to stand in line (assuming there are lines), even if they physically don't get the phone first.

    Why am I guessing that, you ask? Well, it's simple: that's what I HOPE happens.

    Premier customers SHOULD get this phone first. they've been extolling the virtues of Premier (one of which is getting hot phones early) and if the Pre ain't a hot phone, then i don't know what is. i think if the official launch in June 7, Premier customers should be able to order and receive the phone on or about May 19. if Premier customers can't get their phones early, then why is Sprint advertising Premier status benefits?

    i want my PRE early, damn it!!!!!!!! make Ricky Bobby wait, NOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm Premier, damn it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If this is the case where S|P customers don't get any sort of "special" treatment like they stated, ALSO like they say, "be the first to know about new devices AND to purchase them before anyone else".. And if they don't deliver, welp.. False advertising = Lawsuit..

    If you are serious then, well I don't even have to say it.

    Well, I hope your right.I'm a Premire Customer as well and I used to think that we would get the phone 1st, but after what he said as well as looking at my account and going to the Benefits for Sprint Premier Customers website, if you look where they have the picture of the Pre, and under it it states

    "Premier Access
    The best way to make sure you are one of the first to know when the Palm® PreTM launches is to pre-register. Sign up at the link below and we’ll let you know the moment it arrives"
    The link below it takes you to the same Pre-Registration as everyone else, it takes you to the "Now Network with the Pre".. That leads me to believe we wont get it first, if we do cool, if we don't fine, I just want the damn thing already....
    Remember, this is my opinion ! We all have a right to our own.....

    They are coming to talk to me know and putting on some sort of special sunglasses...

    Couldn't you have asked him one more question that he could have answered with a shake or a nod....like...will it come out BEFORE June 7th?

    And what website did he go to to make the browser crash?

    We don't know that guy was even an employee. And Palm did not load any canary traps into the advocates phones.
    Alphas and betas, releases usually have a serial number on front.

    The advocates modes don't have serial numbers on front- I know, I have handled one.

    That is exactly right -- exactly what would advocates leak about the phone itself that we don't already know?

    I think its more about confirmation. We know its shipping with a 1150 battery, but how is battery life? We know what possible apps there are, but which ones will ship with the Pre?

    Most of the things we are doing in this forum is speculation. Now what we need is confirmation.
