    I hate to start a new thread, but I thought this was pretty significant.

    I just popped into my local Sprint store (corporate) to see about launch details. The guy I talked to said that they will have an excellent waitlist system that they will start AFTER they run out of inventory. Anyone who doesn't get one will be put on a prioritized waitlist. When yours comes in, you'll have 48 hours to go get it--after that they'll no longer hold it for you. Of course, you'll have to physically be present in the store to get put on the wait list in the first place. No list before the launch.

    I was REALLY encouraged by this news, and I thought it was worthy of sharing.

    He was also confident that if I showed up at 8am on Saturday, I'd be getting one.

    For what it's worth, this store is in the Dayton, OH area.

    I thought they would try and sell you the new HTC snap first? After all, Microsoft is a much more successful company than Palm. :-)

    go back on Sunday, I'm sure they'll have one available for you. But in all seriousness, I think Radio Shack was telling employees to push the Instinct.

    Well, the HTPC snap is being released on the same day, so I suspect the Sprint stores will be pushing that. :-)

    Ah great! Sorry, I missed your post earlier. But it's nice to hear it from more than one source.

    I was just told the same thing by my sprint corporate repair center/store.

    First come first serve on saturday. Everyone that comes in on saturday and doesn't get one gets on a waiting list for the next batches that come in, only he said they'd hold it for 24 hours not 48.
