Now for some reason when I called on my land line I got some very strange results. I would hear the first two or three menu items for the automated attendent, and then there would be a pause mid sentence, and then it would start over again. I don't know if the problem was Sprint or Qwest (though Qwest network routing had also been acting up that day), but finally I got a call through on my cell phone instead and got to talk to an operator. Unfortunately she had not heard of the phone, didn't have it in here system, and didn't even see anything in the flash news archive for the last week. Guess I'm a bit early.
But since I'm not a patient person, i decided to do some more poking around. Thanks to the Google Cheat Sheet I was able to scan the Sprint site for any sign of the Treo 650 and lo and behold, I got a hit: a 360 degree view of the new phone. No doubt intended to be used as an element of the phone's future entry into the online store. So somebody's been working on it.
Still waiting for the ability to actually buy this thing.
