Well, a just saw a thread in the 'pal pre' section of the forums (god help us all, that part of the forums drives me mad!) that someone had gotten early access. I was about to leave the office and my Pre let's me know that I have an e-mail.

I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

Anyways,
Has anyone else been e-mailed today?

I am glad Palm is making good on their word! This should really help speed up the homebrew community, as well as the Palm legit apps.
