    We are confident, *very confident*, that the Treo 800w is coming in the next few months. And we are confident, *mega confident*, that it's going to be a super cool device. Confident enough that we're going to run out and buy one the very day they are available, whenever that day may be. A Windows Mobile 6 Pro device with 320x320 resolution, WiFi, (probably) GPS... *and* you can use the sucker one-handed easily. That mops the floor with Treo 700wx and even makes the Mogul a little nervous.

    And we don't even use Sprint! So - we're going to **give the Treo 800w away**. Yes, folks, we're running a contest to give away a rumored device that hasn't been released yet. It's future-iffically rumortastic!

    Giving away what might potentially be a non-existent device will, naturally, require a few rules and, er, procedures - get those after the break. The short version is this: In the comments of this post, make a guess about the release date of the Treo 800w. We'll do a random drawing amongst the people who get it right. The winner will receive:

    - **A Treo 800w** after it is officially released. If they end up calling it something else, well, let's just say we're giving away the next Windows Mobile device Palm releases for the Sprint Network. Got it?
    - **A 6 gig microSD Card**. Yeah, the WMExperts Store has **6** gig cards now.
    - **Any 2 software titles** from HobbesIsReal's excellent “*Must-Have Windows Mobile Software*” article. Sure, Palm will include some “secret recipe” stuff on the 800w, but you can always make Windows Mobile a little better. We believe in the software in Hobbes' article, you should too.

    Full rules and info after the break. We're taking off early for the Holidays, everybody, so consider this contest a gift from WMExperts - one of those “we promise we'll make it up to someday” kinda gifts, but a gift nonetheless. See you Wednesday!


    How to Enter

    Register and post a reply to this post with a guess at the exact date (just the date, not the time) the Treo 800w will be released. You may guess as many times as you like, but only your most recent guess in this thread will count as your entry.

    That's it!

    More Rules

    One entry per person (i.e. your most recent guess)

    Contest will end at midnight the day before an official date is announced by either Palm or Sprint. Which basically means you'll want to settle on a date early, because when we find out officially, well, we'll have to disqualify any posts made that day.

    Not open to employees or contractors of Smartphone Experts (sorry to our writers and mods!), Palm, or Sprint (no cheaters!)

    Open to US residents only (hey, it's Sprint)

    We'll pick the winner randomly from all the posts that get it right or, if none do, from the posts that get closest (assuming there's more than one). “Closest” can be before or after, this isn't The Price Is Right, people.

    Hop to it, People!

    When my optimism isn't rewarded I will be thankful for the ability to guess again!

    Clever strategy, dwg. I should probably think about adding another rule about only being able to guess once a week or something. Otherwise we might see:

    Jan 11th: My guess is Jan 12th!
    Jan 12th: My guess is Jan 13th!
    ...and so on.

    Or we could rule that your guess must be at least 2 weeks out from the date you posted. Hm. I'll put it to the community - what's a fair way to prevent gaming the system as I just described above?

    I so want to say February 29. I really do. The odds (based on my crappy research) don't seem to go with a Friday launch.

    Aw, heck, the odds are against me anyway... right? So yeah, February 29.

    Oh, and I like the "your guess must be at least 2 weeks after the date you posted" idea. Keeps it more of a guessing thing than a persistence thing, and it's more fun that way.
    Who's flying this thing?

    You give me too much credit! I'll be lucky to remember that I posted at all, let alone remember to repost each day.

    Your solution of 2 weeks out sounds good to me though.

    All these February guesses are way too optimistic.
    Visor Edge + VisorPhone -> Samsung i300 -> Treo 300 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Treo 755

    First question I have to ask is, lets say VZW announces it first like some of the original rumors showed, then what?

    With that said I guess March 17, 2008
