    guys lets be honest, its not going to be this big, or at least i hope not. For some reason i envision no lines or at least no large lines. the iphone was different. when it was first announced there were regular people, not nerds like us, who were excited for the iphone and were already anouncing they would buy it. But we are most likely a few weeks out from the launch and most people dont even know what it is.

There'll be some game on there they won't be able to put down. They'll be streaming something soothing off of Pandora to lull themselves to sleep. Maybe they'll be running as many programs possible and following the battery meter to see how long it takes to run down. That'll hopefully mean they'll be getting to bed at sunrise.
    its a drag they will probably release it on a sunday so most of us that have jobs wont be able to play with it all night

    Yep! I will have to spend most of the time playing with it at work and through the week!

Any native app could easily be loaded, Palm just wouldn't have a documented API. I imagine someone's going to have a lot of fun disassembling Classic to figure it out. Not my skill set though.
    Hence the word "hacker". How long did it take to get root on iPhone and jailbrake it? And that was back when there were no third party apps at all.

    True true. Tuesday is a big work day where I'll be around a bunch of iphone users. Will be pretty sweet if they have epocrates or some other decent medical software to show off to them.

    One thing I'd like to see is that it just works well out of the box. If that's the case you'll have the best marketing campaign in all the new users showing it off to their friends and others they are showing it off to. I sold a few people on the Centro that way.

    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    I wonder what will happen to Mr. Ski Mask...
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    What about those of us who most likely will order from telesales?
    We'll be bugging Sprint for a UPS tracking number.
    Then we'll be tracking that sucker as it makes it way from Louisville to a regional hub, to the truck, out for delivery.
    Then we'll be waiting in front of our residences waiting for the big brown truck to come down the street.
    If we're stuck at work, we hope no one steals our treasure.
    Then, when we see our long-awaited Pre has arrived, we slice the packing tape, oh so carefully, not to damage that beautiful Pre box.
    Then as we open the box, we realize:
    This is IT!

    Did you sleep with your UPS guys wife or something? LOL. My UPS guy gave me his personal phone number so I can call him for instructions should I not be home for an important delivery. And he NEVER throws stuff over the fence, he neatly wraps it in plastic and puts it in the designated spot.

    Nope, I have always had that problem with UPS. Fedex puts it right by the door and UPS throws it over. I don't get it.

    So you suggest Mr. Ski Mask to make a video...

    Maybe should get everyone lining up outside a Sprint store all wear skimasks..
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    Check your state laws, it's illegal here in Virginia to wear a mask covering your face in public.

    Sprint's 3G network utilization will climb from 3% to 5%
    $PALM will hit $14 a share.
