    Anyone notice that the Treo 700wx is no longer listed on the Sprint website? I think Sprint will post the 800w online today.

    It will be interesting to watch the website and see what happens ...

    Sprint is obviously still screwed up on the "lets get everyone on the same page" idea.

    My local store said it's launching the 15th...hooray!

    Palm doesn't help either as this was a pretty disorganized launch from their end (and yeah, they were...umm...surprised to learn that it was shipping yesterday and you folks were buying them, lol)

    This launch seems typical for a Palm/Sprint effort, based on my recollections of previous Treo launches. Lots of confusion and misinformation. Seems like modern technology-based companies should be more organized. Look at Apple/AT&T.

    ROFL

    This means, from what we've heard from actual or attempted purchases, it was launched yesterday, and will launch again the 13th, and, from what you heard, the 15th as well.

    ROFL.

    surprised or upset? Should buyers expect the kind of treatment the 700p beta tester got?

    I forgot his name...

    That's the killer. At least allow people to RE-UP their contracts and buy this phone early if they want to, ahead of the iPhone release. If this phone gets half the marketing the iPhone did, it will be a best-seller for Palm.

    yeah, not surpised...well a bit as I expected both companies were to have changed a bit lately...whoops!

    Hey, at least the iPhone is evidently plagued with some software glitches....or rather Dieter said he was flipping out a bit yesterday with 2.0 on it and some news stories are saying the same

    I've dealt with apple for the past five years or so and dealing with palm for over 11 or 12 years. I'd say the difference is that apple will quietly and quickly fix their issue while palm may never fix their issue or they will take a while. I'd hope for palm to prove me wrong, but I doubt it....

    And I don't own or want an iphone... the reality of the companies as "I" see it....

    A couple of Sprint stores here in Charlotte have confirmed a July 13th launch, but they're closed on Sunday. So it's effectively a July 14th launch.

    While I said I would wait for the Touch Pro, I am willing to give sprint another chance.


    I called my local store, and they are willing to sell me an 800w...

    Only thing is, from the reviews im not 100% happy with the phone. (but have been waiting so long for it)

    Plus I will not get the nice little 150$ off discount (i have only had service for a year and a half)


    so I will only get 75$ off for adding 2 more years onto my contract.... bah


    so my price tag will be about 425$ which is a bit much for a phone I feel is not up to par.

    Hearing all these conflicts with 3rd party apps sets me back alot (also to add in, something needs to change with that blue color.)


    over all I may just have to bite my lip and go over, even though i swore i would never by a square screen device again for lack up software that works with it...

    The 800w didn't show up for me either. I tried several random zip codes around the country and couldn't find it listed in any of them. The 700 didn't show up either, though.
