    Just one of 5 ways you can win one of 10 Palm Pre smartphones.* To enter, simply post what you think will be the release date of the Palm Pre. Only one entry per member, IP address (yes, we check). When the Palm Pre is officially announced, we'll randomly draw (2) lucky winners from those who have the date corrrect.

    RULES UPDATE: Should the Palm Pre release date be announced on or before April 3rd, we'll choose (1) winner for Palm Pre Release Date Bingo and push the other (1) to the Forum Giveaway making for a total of (3) winners in the Forum Giveaway. This will give everyone sufficient time to enter. If they do announce the release date before April 3rd, that will still provide early entries with better odds.

    Release date is defined as available to general public.

    Employees of Palm or Sprint are not eligible.

    When Palm and/or Sprint announces the release date. ie. when it becomes public, posts thereafter will not count. Posts that are edited will be eliminated. This will prevent those who come across the information and might try to slide under the wire before I lock the thread. I pretty much online 24/7, outside of sleep and the Precor. It helps me get in shape and doesn't allow me to get even a few pre-free minutes.

    Once you make your entry, you cannot change it, so pick carefully! Do not make more than one post.

    Alright, I'm gonna do it. I'm placing my faith in the completely unsubstantiated rumors of a supposed Pre beta tester:

    April 30th

    P.S. What happens if no one gets the date right? I ask out of sincere concern that those Pres would not find a home. :biggrin:

    I find that highly unlikely. In the event no one gets it, then you all get entered into the random drawing.:wink: Note: I updated the rules to reflect this should it happen

    Ohhh I'm so torn between being optimistic and realistic... grrrrr...

    I'll say May 26th... about a month after the supposed "line in the sand" date and shortly before the iPhone 3.0 release.

    As much as I'd like to win a Pre, I still hope I'm overshooting LOL

    I'm going with May 10, 2009 for the official in-store release although there is sometimes a soft release a few days before that. Which date are we supposed to be guessing? The first date anyone can possibly get their hands on one by calling or the first official in-store date?

    I'm going with June 6, 2009! ...I hope it's much sooner!

    Is this contest for the release to the general public? Or, first release? Premier members may get an early shot at Pre!

    I'm a Premier member, but I don't have any faith that Sprint will let me know the phone is available ahead of time. Sprint has yet to tell me that OS 4.5 is ready for my Blackberry. It's only been out for more than a month now. lol.

    I'm guessing:

    Sunday, June 7, 2009

    Early in June so they beat the end of the quarter but late enough to put the final software touches through proper testing. We'll see...

    Hi. I think that the pre is not going to be released until begin of may. The reason is that Palm I think would have announced the date yet if it would be that soon. The situation on the market is very hard for mobile phone manufacturers and Palm needs to bring the Pre soon to survive. So I think they donĀ“t know themselves when they get it to sell.
