WMExperts Rumortastic Giveaway: Treo 800w + Extras

Update: Now that we have the new specs on the Treo 800w, we thought we'd update the specs on the contest itself. Instead of a 6 gig microSDHC card, the prize package will now have an 8 gig card.

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 easily use the sucker one-handed. That mops the floor with the 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?
  • An 8 gig microSD Card. Yeah, the WMExperts Store has 8 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

  1. One entry per person (i.e. your most recent guess) 1.5. Although you can guess as often as you like, your guess must be at least 2 weeks away from the date you're posting (ex. if you post on January 1st, your guess cannot be before January 14th).
  2. 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.
  3. Not open to employees or contractors of Smartphone Experts (sorry to our writers and mods!), Palm, or Sprint (no cheaters!)
  4. Open to US residents only (hey, it's Sprint)
  5. 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!

Update: Since we now have Sprint's planned release date: July 22nd, any votes for that date on or after May 5th at 4PM EST don't count.

Of course, if you don't believe Sprint will hit that target, feel free to keep guessing. :)

    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?
  • February 3, 2008
  • January 27, 2008
  • 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.
  • I wanted 1-25-07 but Saturday isn't going to happen so 1-28-08
  • Clever strategy, dwg. I should probably think about adding another rule about only being able to guess once a week or something.
    You give me too much credit! I'll be lucky to remember that I posted at all, let alone remember to repost each day. :D
    Your solution of 2 weeks out sounds good to me though.
  • 3/10/08
    All these February guesses are way too optimistic.
  • February 12, 2008.
  • 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

    July 7 for Sprint and October 15 Verizon, though I guess the latter is less relevant to the contest than it is to me. :D
  • It will be released for online sales on March 4, Retail in April. It will have slighty better screen specs than people think. 480x320 or the like. And 2.8 inches or larger screen size. That's my prediction. Little bit of hope in there too.
  • April 3rd
  • February 20
  • March 7th
  • March, 26th.
  • january 7, 2008 it will be announced. I'd bet a SD card on it.
    PS: Its the opening day of CES. When did Palm announce the Treo 700w but the first day of CES almost 3 years ago. :)
  • fishera...
    700w was only 2 years ago, not 3. Yes, it's such a horribly underpowered device it probably SHOULD have been 3 years ago. It was officially announced at a Sept. press conference with Palm and Microsoft in 2005.
    I guess I'll throw my 2 cents in on the 800w release:
    Sprint: 4/1/08
    VZW: 1/15/09
    Sprint 850w: 2/1/09 :)

    When a product release schedule for Sprint is leaked (before an official announcement), everyone will change their guess to the same date.

    Well maybe do a cut off and close the thread. Assuming it comes out this quarter...FCC leaks etc will start soon.
  • Problem with the 2 week rule is if you think the date is pretty far out (more than 4 weeks), it would be a bad strategy to guess that date. You would instead guess an intermediary date (about 2 weeks out) and if you are wrong, then guess your real date. If your real date was 6 weeks out, you could do this twice, etc. I think the easiest/fairest is just to allow everyone one guess.
    Having said that, I will wait to hear your final ruling before I put in my entry(ies).
    But thanks for running this contest - think it is a great idea! I am anxiously awaiting the 800w...I am currently on a Verizon 650 and really need to move to WM (work has blocked email on Treo palms due to not meeting some security guidelines), but don't really want to do the 700w with the 800w imminent...or so you say ;>). I have been waiting for 6 months now and also really want to get on broadband ......the wait has been extremely painful and really hope the Oct+ guesses for Verizon are wrong.
  • March 11th
  • I don't want to change the rules again, so we'll leave it with the 2 week rule. If a rumor comes out before we get the official word from Palm or Sprint, well... them's the breaks with a rumortastic contest. ;)
  • What happens if two or more people are right with the date? And have you noticed how many people have one post who just recently singed up?
    we choose randomly from the people who got it right.
    lots of new sign ups make us happy! :D

  • I go for March 9th 2008.
    I need it, my 700wx on Sprint is acting up.
  • I think if there are multiple posters with the same date, the odds should be heavily weighted in favor of the early posters. For example, if my prediction (made in December 2007) is correct and we have unofficial confirmation of that date in late January, all of a sudden there will be 100 posts with that date. I think you can do a system where if there are, say, 5 correct guesses, the first poster has 5 balls in the pool, the second has 4, etc, and the last has only one.
  • Feb 25th 2008 - Maybe Verizon will surprise everyone!

    Palm goes under or sold before new release of phone.http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ao?s=PALM is a link to the Palm section of Yahoo finance. Palm's stock is picking up!! Very difficult to say, but I daresay that upon the release of the 800w, Palm's stock will surge up again. I predict that the 800w will give it breathing room till the new Linux OS-based phones come out........

    well its a 6 dollar stock...even 5 cents is a big move at this point.
    most likely any big uptic is due to buyout rumors. might be some valuable ip that can be repurposed for something else or put the assets in hands of capable managment. Palm's days as an independent entity are numbered given severe management. just my opinion, altho given the stock at 6 bucks a few others may share the view.

  • I think it will be released on April 7, 2008 - my birthday! (shameless plug) :-)
  • March 21, 2008
  • well im changing my vote to may 21st... well see how it goes...:D
  • So, February 30 came and went. I guess I'll try April 31.
  • April 14, 2008
  • From leaked pictures, it looks pretty cool. And I agree. Specs-wise, it's a DREAM!!! My guess is 6/1/08
  • I may sound like a bummer, but I think it'll be here July 3rd.
  • So, leap day came and went, and the 800w didn't do either (particularly the first part).
    So, choosing a day has become more difficult, 'cause April Fool's Day really is a foolish day to pick. I mean, anyone going for something of silly significance would go for that day, of course.
    My next choice would be my half-birthday, which is in mid-May, but that still wouldn't bring the appropriate level of satisfaction (though if I won, I suppose I'd just have to deal with it ;) ).
    So, I've decided to choose an even better day. Way back when I was in college, I was part of a team that was competing in the "Solar Splash" competition, a solar-electric boat competition. The actual competition was to be held somewhere in Michigan (?) in June. The first year I participated, my next-older brother scheduled his wedding for the same weekend. The second and last year I participated, my oldest brother scheduled his wedding for the same weekend. Yes, their weddings were almost exactly a year apart. Needless to say, I couldn't go to the competition either year. I must admit that I am happy for both of my brothers, but it was very disappointing to miss this competition both years.
    The dates were June 20 and 21, which are a Friday and Saturday this year. I'll pick June 20, 2008, since it's a weekday, and quite frankly I have serious doubts that the phone will actually be launched on a Friday or Saturday.
    And those doubts bring me to my plea... Whoever in Sprint and Palm happen to be watching this thread... please help redeem that weekend in June for me and release the next Windows Mobile device by Palm for the Sprint network on June 20?
    Thanks.
    :cheers:
  • I would have to say 4-3-08. The CTIA show is 4-1 to 4-3-08 and that is when all new phones from Palm and all other phone manufactures will be released so I would have to say April 3rd. From the info surrounding the 800 it will most likely be right after the show.:thumbsup:

    Finally someone with more than a date based on more than stupid superstitions, or various religious beliefs.
    So sometime in April, you think? That sounds cool. And when will the GSM, either, the unlocked unbranded one, and/or the AT&T version be released in yours, or anyone else's estimation? Will Sprint have exclusivity for 6 months, or something like that? And will it really look sorta/kinda like the Centro?
    Thanks...:cool:

  • Finally someone with more than a date based on more than stupid superstitions, or various religious beliefs.
    I don't know... some of them can be fun. While I might yawn as yet someone else guesses April Fool's Day, I do admire those who come up with creative dates that have some meaning, at least to them.
    But then again, I'd better admire that... it's the basis of my guess of June 20... it's become a cause. ;)

  • Okay...so since March 10th wasn't as good of a day as I expected (phone didn't come out plus other things), I'm changing my guess to June 9th.
  • Release Date guess of Treo 800W: April 22, 2008.
  • Hopefully....April 10th
  • 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!

    This freaking phone better come out soon! I've had my 700w for over two years and am on my 3rd insurance replacement (my Treo likes to go for a swim every so often and it's in need of another dip). I sure don't feel like coughing up another $50 for an obsolete phone!

  • http://www.wmexperts.com/articles/rumors/get_your_treo_800w_rumortastic.htmlHappy Monday, everybody. We have Sprint's planned release date (and some other juicy new details), courtesy of Malatesta. We're confident that the date is correct -- although, as release dates tend to do, the date could possible change. Still and all, we're going to alter our Treo 800w Rumortastic Giveaway at 4pm EST today. What we're going to do is declare that after 4pm EST today, nobody can guess the particular day we have in mind. Other days will still be open for guesses if you doubt a) our source or b) Sprint's ability to deliver.
  • June 3rd sounds like as good a day as any... (well never actually sounds better, but...)
  • June 1
  • June 13th
  • August 4th!
