Pro Delay Sucks

Ok so I know they are coming out with this new Palm Pre which "IF" sprint ever gets it I will purchase.....I have the palm 800w right now and love it, just love it so when it leaked about the 850 pro coming out I keep on all the sites checking on when the phone would be released....I got one to make you think.....I just got called up yesterday by sprint to let me know that they will credit my account the $374.00 and give me a $25.00 Credit for my Inconvenience since last Thursday the 22nd I happen to be checking the sprint website and seen the 850 pro on it with rebates and all the phone will be $550.00 although with all the rebates it will be 250 after everything is taken away special for phone and $100 mail in rebate....so I checked on it ...

what's taking AT&T so long...

... to start selling a branded GSM version? I've used the unbranded one from Palm for some time now and it works quite well on the network.

It's yet another Windows Mobile touchscreen phone, with features that don't differentiate nearly enough to justify carrying it. There's already 3 touchscreen WM phones, a few more non touchscreen, and a dozen more Blackberries & other smartphones.

Is it just me or...

Does it seem like several companies "accidentally" release products on their website and then retract them, as if they're trying to get a buzz out there about the product? Seems kinda fishy to me...
Actually Sprint fully intended to launch it this weekend but with inventory arriving slow and a big training push underway they pushed to 2/15.

This is really annoying

It seems to me that Sprint and Dan Hesse have a long way to go before they can actually say they "cleaned house". Who is the damn idiot purchaser that decided that Sprint should carry the 800W, and why on earth does he/she still have a damn job?! Its one of many terrible decisions made in regards to recruiting new handsets to draw customers, and worse still, its new and its gonna sit on the shelf collecting dust when the Pre is launched, much like the Centro and Centro Refresh do now. Did we really need 4-5 different Palm phones rotting away in inventory at the same time(Treo 700wx, Treo 755, Treo Centro, Treo Centro Refresh, Treo 800w), while hyping the best thing since sliced iPhones about to be released for Sprint from none other than P...

I think many people haven't been happy with Palm for a while now. They have been sidetracked to say the least.

Look at Verizons site too...The Treo 700wx, the Centro and until very recently the 700P were on there!

Hopefully Palm will start clean...

Stop gap for the Pre?

I wonder how many of these they will sell after the Pre is released in a few months?
some business customers will still purchase this phone. Alot of corporations IT departments only work with windows based phones.

Actually pro is replacing 800w.end of life is march for 800w.

Launching 2/15 now...

Pretty much official, a little birdy told me that every Sprint employee received an e-mail today that states this specifically.

I am guessing this was done because of inventory levels that aren't there yet and a big training push to get employees up to speed on it.

Advertising

"Sprint has since pulled the Web page with details regarding the Treo Pro." Evil or Very Mad

This type of advertising is getting annoying.
Yep...it gets a nnoying, but you got to admit it generates a buzz fast...
