    When a product release schedule for Sprint is leaked (before an official announcement), everyone will change their guess to the same date.

    Well maybe do a cut off and close the thread. Assuming it comes out this quarter...FCC leaks etc will start soon.

    Problem with the 2 week rule is if you think the date is pretty far out (more than 4 weeks), it would be a bad strategy to guess that date. You would instead guess an intermediary date (about 2 weeks out) and if you are wrong, then guess your real date. If your real date was 6 weeks out, you could do this twice, etc. I think the easiest/fairest is just to allow everyone one guess.

    Having said that, I will wait to hear your final ruling before I put in my entry(ies).

    But thanks for running this contest - think it is a great idea! I am anxiously awaiting the 800w...I am currently on a Verizon 650 and really need to move to WM (work has blocked email on Treo palms due to not meeting some security guidelines), but don't really want to do the 700w with the 800w imminent...or so you say ;>). I have been waiting for 6 months now and also really want to get on broadband ......the wait has been extremely painful and really hope the Oct+ guesses for Verizon are wrong.

    I don't want to change the rules again, so we'll leave it with the 2 week rule. If a rumor comes out before we get the official word from Palm or Sprint, well... them's the breaks with a rumortastic contest.

    I think if there are multiple posters with the same date, the odds should be heavily weighted in favor of the early posters. For example, if my prediction (made in December 2007) is correct and we have unofficial confirmation of that date in late January, all of a sudden there will be 100 posts with that date. I think you can do a system where if there are, say, 5 correct guesses, the first poster has 5 balls in the pool, the second has 4, etc, and the last has only one.

    sorry, rules are set. Contests are as much about luck as they are about good guesses.
