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 I checked on it ...

palm changed battery suppliers at the last minute to address any issues with battery life like the Treo 800w. they are waiting for the battery supplies to get up to stock before it officially launches. look for a launch of March 15th.

Oh, this is even better...I was in a Sprint store about to purchase the 800w when the sales person went to the back to actually pull an 850 out of the box and put the battery in to let me 'get a feel for it'. The non-recessed window and thinner body was perfect. Said to come back on Feb 14th and it would be much for that. So, at least this store had one.

Holy Cow, you don't say they actually had the phone in hand......? B/c I am getting so tired of them sayin Jan25th, Feb 15th, End of Feb and NOW lol NOW March 15th....bc I was told my phone would be shipped out on Feb 17th but when I called to check on it they said late feb....huhhhh guess one of those believe it when I see it....back in Dec when they said it was coming out I bought 3 total cases (rubber and plastic) for this phone...learned my lesson in that....I will not pre buy for a phone coming out ever again....the later they push this phone back and closer it gets to the PALM PRE coming out they will lose those sales.....Bc I was going to get the PRO and then sell it and buy the PRE just to have 2 of the best phones sprint carried but...
