    I think we can now officially called this as delyed. All main departments that would be in the loop- reg telesales, business telesales, CS, retentions, no one knows any dates. Bus. telesales just said its not even in their system and should be mid-Sept. now was delayed even though the launch materials were out there already. This is some !#%@#$%$

    Well if it was because of some issue, better they work it out BEFORE it's released. I think the WX is really cool too, and if I could stand Sprint again, I'd be in line!
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Is it really "delayed" though? I never heard SPRINT give an official release date, and I'm sorry but "a business rep told me on the phone" is not OFFICIAL. Concrete proof that this device even exists only came out a week or two ago.

    well figured since verizon had the phone for months they had plenty of time to work out bugs and considering a Palm store rep had the boxed unites in stock 1.5 weeks ago and posted pics on Sprintusers that they would release this week so I dont see how they are still correcting issues if stores have taken stock. What a mess Sprint makes

    Well anther business telesales rep checked and had the same answer as before mid-Sept. so much for getting that one this week....

    Printed launch materials all said business customers 8/31 and reg customers 9.3 but now its mid-september in an offical email sent to out the telesales rep just told me. Mid-Sept release now but "could" be sooner. Didnt have a new specific date

    I wouldn't say it's really delayed. There was never an "official announcement" from Palm. I was told 8/31 even told that today, but there was also the 9/3 date as well. I think Palm would have to make an official announcement before we can call it delayed, and they haven't even said it exists. We know it does, and we also have the pleasure/frustration of finding out information we're not really intended to find out which makes this seem "delayed". I know this sux, but we never got anything "official".

    If it doesn't happen today, Palm is known for midnight launches Sunday into Monday.

    I write for PalmAddict and just noticed it. I know Palm has a great relationship with PalmAddict, and Palm did contact PalmAddict about the 700wx. I'll see if I can find anything out. 700p all over again,lol.

    I'm still using the 650. I just defected to other phones for my additional lines. Still a Treo lover though! I wish the GSM versions would be made available sooner!

    See post #84... you all heard it here first. "Delayed" is the word the CSR used (may not mean a thing). I'm as anxious for the 700wx as anyone, but I don't think this is any big deal. Keep digging... keep the info coming.

    UMMM....my store has had them in since yesterday, so i don't think it's delayed. It's very nice and we only got 6 in and we have 5 remaining. PM with questions, though i don't own one so don't get to technical on me, i am however, learning thanks to TC.

    p.s. i know its my first post, but that doesn't mean i don't have one at my desk. Someone e-mail me to get the pic, i am having trouble posting it.

    The Treo 700wx was a great device. Especially for one handed use, but it would be hard to give up my Mogul now.

    From the famous Shadowmite's site

    Treo 700wx delayed?
    Posted 13 hours, 1 minute ago on August 31, 2006 by shadowmite # Cell Phone Related, News, WM5 PDA

    While a delay is normally only verifiable by knowing exactly when it WAS supposed to come out, we are fairly certain 8/31 was in fact a launch date for the 700wx. Yet telesales is still not offering it which could mean that they finally fixed the glitch in telesales ordering it before they were supposed to, or it's not going to be released this week afterall... Only time will tell.

    I've learned that some people exaggerate the truth. I don't think anyone has ordered them yet. I do believe that some people have the 700wx already, especially since the grove Palm retail store was selling them last week. I hope those people claiming they ordered them really did, and get them. I just know some people post things like "I ordered it", "I got it" just to frustrate people even further when it's not true. I hope they get them.

    Retentions told me tonight that the 700wx is in their system, but he can't place an order yet, he thinks possible tomorrow even though his system says the 700wx launches today.

    I was asking the guy if he worked for a sprint store.

    yeh exaclty they obviously saw it in there but said theresno launch date for it meaning who knows which i dont really understand how they dont know when as if the slots blank. I think they were all told be play it hush hush now until the minute they can start selling it.
