    That's why the Pre is coded S80, for Slider and 8 MB, right? Oh, wait. It's not.

    FWIW, I doubt Palm or Sprint are engaging in chess metaphors, either.
    OK smart guy. How about C = Centro? Does that work for you? The whole point of the thread was to try and figure out what the product code means.

    LOL. I love the jackass acting like he is contributing to the thread.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    same... Unless its a 16gb version for 300, cause then i wouldn't have paid...


    But if it packs alot of better stuff, i;ll be pissed...

    Or it might be the touchscreen only version of the pre.. no keyboard, for 50 bucks less.. Or the pre drops to 150, that goes to 100, and the pixie goes for 50 bucks...

    now that would be interesting..

    One to compete with blackberry, one for iphone, and the original pre itself..

    I'm thinking they sprayed centros with WD40...to unleash the new centro C40 that doesn't squeak? Ok..that was bad..

    I'm trying to imagine being an inside person at Palm reading all these analyses of the model numbering. They are either impressed by the closeness of some of the guesses in these posts or rofl at the wild speculation.

    Maybe It is because we just love Palm devices too much

    This is probably the deepest thing I've ever read on these forums

If there was a new smartphone associated with "C40" it would have been announced or released a long time ago. It's time to put the "C40" to rest.
    companies start planning about a year early. It could be part of the database if sprint was planning a 4g device. Maybe put the codename early to reduce leaks closer to launch.

    Honestly I just hope it's another WebOS phone from Palm. I love my Pre, and plan on upgrading in June to (hopefully) a Pre Plus on Sprint, or maybe a new Palm phone all together. Hopefully it happens!

    C=3rd letter of the alphabet , 3rd WebOS device line
    40=Either a 4.0" screen OR WiMax 4G. Or perhaps both (unlikely).
    Pilot 1000-->Pilot 5000-->PalmPilot Pro-->IIIe-->Vx-->m505-->T|T-->T|T2-->T|C-->T|T3-->T|T5-->TX-->Verizon Treo 700P-->Verizon Treo 755p-->Verizon Motorola Droid + Verizon Centro--> Verizon Motorola Droid X + Palm TX-->Verizon Droid Bionic + Palm TX

    I thought I already put this one to rest... 40 is hex for 64. It's the relaunch of the Commodore 64! Think of all the games we'll have right away!

    At any rate... I get the impression stuff doesn't start showing up in Sprint's inventory systems until a couple months before launch. Didn't the Pixi show up in September? I think it is a dead bogey.

    I'm thinking that the C40 is a red herring and nothing will ever come of it.
