    VZW Pre's and Pixi's (plus) shipping with 1.4 when released on 1/25 while Sprint users wait for a couple/three weeks for it...

    OR: since there hasn't been a whole lot of marketing push on Verizon's part for these Palm devices to drop on 1/25, I could see them delaying the launch until they could launch the devices with 1.4 out of the box.

    I see a lot of in-store marketing power on launch day if vzw reps can record video of customers and demo the direct upload to youtube feature...
    Isn't that exactly what Sprint did with us? We were promised Flash way back when.

    I am guessing Feb 5th. with 1.4.1 out by Feb 28th. lol

    Not entirely true. February has a 29th day every four years. The next leap year should be in 2012 if I recall correctly.

    I take back the 2nd option of VZW pushing the date back after seeing the full page spread from the WSJ

    Probably a few days after Apple makes their big announcement on January 27th.

    At which point Jobs will announce how the latest version of iTunes will break Palm's ability to sync. Palm will then battle back with release of the OS update, and announce how they rehacked (again) iTunes, and we can continue to do the dance!!

    i feel like there would be a lot of p.o'ed significant others if the update came out on the 14th...just my 2 cents.

    Forgot about this! It wouldn't surprise me at all if Palm dropped 1.4 in the days before the 27th or the morning of, just to steal some of the blog and tech site headlines from Apple.... Course that might have something to do with the VZW release date of the 25th too....

    When Palm said February, I took it to mean LATE February, like Friday, the 26th.
    If they meant March, it would be late winter, spring would be May.
    I remember last year when they said the Pre would be out in the first half of the year and they beat it by about 3 weeks.
    Always guess later.
    Maybe someone should start a poll on 1.4?

    I like the 14th, for the poetic value.

    Yeah, many wives and girlfriends would be quite annoyed that they missed dinner reservations cause you are too busy installing your patches

    Luckily for me my wife is a Pre fangirl so she'd be right there with me installing patches

    I would be beyond amazed if it came out before the last week in Feb. With all the updates they are talking about, they will need to be extra careful. Plus, if I am right it was almost a month after the developers got 1.3.5 that we saw it. I am sure the developers need at least that long for this update. Although based on yesterdays updates, lots of developers already verified their code works.

    Question: Do we need to wait for 1.4 to get Flash? I read somewhere that it would be available in the App Catolog something like two weeks after the show.

    Taking all bets that the dates speculated at in this thread will be the source of 50 "Well, Palm missed another deadline, they said it'd be released on Feb ___, when will palm get their stuff together, I'm getting a new phone" threads.

    Yes flash is suppose to come into the app catalog before 1.4 is available.

    Forget about Verizon Pre/Pixi versions arriving prepacked with 1.4 - that's just not possible!

    They are manufactured since weeks and 1.4 definitely wasn't ready by then.

    They would have to flash them right before selling...actually in the US.

    just not possible! Verizon will start with version 1.3.x.x.

    ..... Seriously?!?! the 30th or 31st..... Even on a leap year, which this is not, we're only expecting 29 days in Feb not 30 or 31. Thanks for the chuckle.
