    Ok, here's my inside info. I asked a third party agent that works near me when they're getting the Pre. I asked when he was kind of busy, and out of the blue, and he said the end of next month...this was a few days ago, back in January. I'm sure they won't get it right when it launches, so a few weeks afterwards...the end of February, wounds like a good possibility.

    Too bad I'm not really in a financial position to purchase it .

    [3:45 PM] Alicia says: AROUND THE SAME DATE
    [3:46 PM] Customer says: cool, do you may have like an sku # for the product available? and do you know the price for best buy? Are you guys going to stablish sprint contracts in best buy or you guys are only going to sell the product with no contract?
    Sounds like the rep is still thinking about the Treo Pro, despite your parenthetical "not the palm pro" reference (which probably got ignored). Try confirming the availability of the Treo Pro first, then ask about the Palm Pre, and you'll probably find that you've eliminated a false positive. I've done this twice with Sprint, and in neither did the reps come up with release information on the Pre once they had the Pro listing to contrast it with.

    I chatted with Sprint rep informing them that Pre forums were reporting Best Buy would have the Palm Pre on Feb. 15. Rep communicated someone was confusing Treo with Pro.

    My hopes are fading. Thank god for the bestbuy confirmation thread thread!

    2/15 hopes live on!

    Believe me, they were definitely talking about the pre. Remember I ask twice for the sku and they didnt know it. Here is another session I did, but notice that he actually was trying to avoid my questions. He had all the information available for the Pro even told me that it was on sale since several weeks (dont you think this "alice" should have known the same info about the pro?)
    anyways here is the session so make your own conclusion:

    Notice that this time he actually gave me a full name. also notice that if they have the same info in the system, this "alice" would have given us the same: "sorry we have no details at this time"

    i am officially now 50/50 on the 2/15 release
  14. #394  
    If you are saying its NOT coming out, then there is no negitive in revelaing your source.

    So what is it.
  15. #395  
    Hey, a commercial can still start airing tomorrow. Like a full on assault on major networks. =P

    Also the same here. I found many years ago it was very hard to read paper books. But for some reason reading on the phone is much easier on the eyes. The problem is finding titles. Baen books is good, but do not have a lot of titles I like. I recently tried to buy an E-book version of a book I was interested in. It was $10 more than buying the hardbound from a brick and mortar store. No way I am going to put up with that.

    So at my Best Buy today, they said that the date was 2/15 but they had them last week and had to send them back to the manufacturer. I then asked the rep to clarify whether it was the Pre or the Treo Pro, and even pointed to a picture of the Pro that was in their Mobile ad. She then realized she meant the Pro and new nothing about the Pre.

    I think it would be appropriate if it came during the Chuck show tomorrow since they are supposed to be Best Buy.
