    Yeah and I ran that story last night on WMExperts.

    Tip: Engadget Mobile is usually a day or two behind on news as they mostly collect it from other sites like TC/WME ;-)

    I agree that the image is confusing . . . whoever did the page layout should take Bulleted List Training 101.

    I noticed that too, ZERO. The July 13th blended right in.
    Mal, is everything still pointing to this launching on-time on the 13th?

    vincentaz,

    Yup, definitely the 13th.

    If Treo is going to launch on 13th. It will be announced on Thursday. (Last two products launch were on Thursday.) So poeple can to buy it on Sat or Sunday. BUT the introduction of iPhone on July 11th may make Palm to postpone the launch as most of the media will cover the iPhone. Of course, Sprint may want to put a big ad to promote Treo 800w, like the Electric Blue Centro introduced for AT&T on July 11th.

    It is no secret that the iPhone is launching on Friday.

    Had Sprint/Palm wanted to delay the release we would have heard that a month ago.

    Delaying it actually wouldn't make sense anyways--how does that work for them? lol

    Either way, believe me or not: it is not delayed.

    lol... this is how speculation and rumors get started.

    At any rate, I thought the launch date was perfect... of course, it could change, who knows for sure. I'd say just relax and roll with it... no use in getting an ulcer over a phone launch.

    Couple days after the iphone is perfect... allows sprint to run some fresh ads and stay in the game. Close enough to hopefully take some of the air out of the iphone launch, although, I don't think the treo will do that... but wth...

    Finally this afternoon, a sprint rep I know learned of a launch date... July 13th. Why they are being so extremely tight-lipped about this launch, it's not certain.

    I was on the phone with a Sprint rep today doing an ESN swap back to my 755p (couldn't deal with the smaller battery on the centro). I asked her about the 800w, she said is that the instinct? Seems the internal numbers for the instinct is similar to '800' or something. Anyway, she knew nothing about a treo 800w. She was nice and efficient though.
    3 Sharp Wizards (who can remember the model #'s anymore?) -> REX -> PalmPilot -> PalmPilot w/1 MB Upgrade -> Palm V -> Palm Vx -> Palm m505 -> Treo 90 -> Treo 600 (Sprint) -> Treo 650 (Sprint) -> Treo 700p (Sprint) -> Treo 755p (Sprint) -> Centro (KB & Batt too small) -> Treo 755p & Black Centro

    Current "essential" programs: Chatter, 2day, TakePhone, SplashID, PalmPDF, 4Cast, DA, GoogleMaps, BackupMan, PowerHero, KeyCaps, LudusP, mSafe, TextPlus, VolumeCare, ePocrates, zLauncher.

    Also just got off the phone with a rep and she confirmed July 13th. If I sign a 2-year agreement then I get the $150 off the phone which will bring it down to $299.99. Then I will be able to a $100 mail-in rebate which I would get a few months down the road which it brings it down to $199.99 plus tax. Pretty good price for the upgrade.

    If it works as it should (everything works perfectly) then that is a great price... I've already decided I'll pay no more than $300 for the treo 800w... I'm sure with rebates and such I'll be able to get it down to that... not to mention the sale of my 700wx which is still in great condition.... heck, I might get the 800w to around $100 to $150.

    Can't decide if I'll ebay or attempt a sale here though... thinking I'll get a better price on ebay, but it is such a pain... sure I'll have someone from Russia attempt to purchase even though I state no overseas sales. lol

    All of my Treo sales on eBay have been smooth, uneventful transactions.

    Just spoke to the rep in my local store who just sat in a phone meeting with Palm reps yesterday. He doesn't have his phone yet because they are told the 13th is being pushed back. I got some promotional material as well information (not sure how accurate this is) but will ship with a standard and extended battery due to beta feedback. It will have 6.1, 170 mb of free space, rev A and agps/gps. Picture to follow... posting from fone...

    Qualcomm chipset is listed too. Thought that might help out with that TI rumor.

    Why can't these eBay scam artists at least proofread what they write.
