    Just found this on Lisa Brewster's website, a way to determine Palm Pre's build date.

    My Pre must be a b**tard child. The 6, 7 & 8 characters are 5W9. Does that make it May 32, 2009? Purchased launch day 06/06/09. First Pre, only minor tweak issues that I resolved.

    August 31. And build quality is solid besides a tiny bit of oreo. I can also run both cpu freq scaling and smartreflex patches with no problems.

    No I'm sure there were ones produced way in advance of the release date; they cant make them all the day before release.

    On that list, "V" is the 31st day, there shouldn't be a "W" I guess I have a "special" Pre!!

    My launch-day Pre was born 5/31/2009 according to the serial number. But if you look at the warranty date in the "Reverse logistics support" (dial ##786#), it is 5/27/09.

    A sprint tech answered that for me...

    The first date - the RLS date - is when the phone started production.

    The Serial # Date is the date the phone was actually tested and given its serial number.

    Some times those dates will be the same other times they will be different....in my case they match.

    Hope that helps out.
