Posted by Fast Follower in Uncategorized.

TI – Your prayers (whining) may have been answered. Engadget reports about confirmation of the Treo 700wx coming from Sprint on September 3. What are you gonna do?

Follow our prior discussion on this topic here.

“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.’

FF patience is key when it comes to technology. What am I going to do? I am going to wait until Sept. 3rd, and get me a 700wx! I told you to wait, but no Mr. Fast Follower couldn’t wait! I am glad you left the link in your post. Take a look at the first few comments. Well Here they are….

1. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS!!! Now I can rid of this BULKY PPC-6700 that I had to buy the EXTRA SUPER SIZED battery….

2.. I was going to buy another battery for the 6700 till I saw this, I hope it’s true. Goodbye 6700, We have had good and bad times, but I’m in love with another.

I think the big question is for you FF…What are YOU going to do? Stay with the 6700 or move on to another? All of my questions have been answered and the Treo is the way to go. Since I get a corporate discount, I will be trying to get in on the business plan! I might be 700wxing before September.

Right in time for the new television season (getting my slingbox order ready, as we speak).

So you see in the end folks FF once again pulls the trigger and is going to be disappointed. I will have fun responding to all of the comments and then watching him pull out his keyboard and flip his unit around to answer.

Oh, by the way… here is the link to our most popular post… just a reminder as to who is the true technology prophet…

So, you don’t care about wifi? ‘Cause I don’t believe the Treo has wifi.

4. Tell it like it TI is! - August 15, 2006

Nope…Wifi is not the important to me on a mobile device. Hopefully the EVDO coverage is good.

5. Fast Follower - August 15, 2006

EVDO is fairly fast (almost as fast as wifi). But the Sprint Power Vision U.S. coverage isn’t what you think it is. So before you and all of our readers who think EVDO is all you’ll ever need for mobile high speed access, check out this Sprint map of their Power Vision coverage.

Ok, what’s up with the 700wx rumors??? Sprint you gotta step up and be honest. You are really disrespecting your customers.

Dear Mr. Sprint,
Your loyal customers have been asking for months about the availability of the 700w with your service. WE KNOW you’ve heard the banter, so stop treating us like an ugly spouse that will never leave you no matter what you say (or don’t say)! We know that you know right this minute if the 700wx is coming to Sprint or not. If it is, give us a date for introduction, next month, next year, next week? We will all have much more respect for you and will probably stay loyal customers if we are satisfied with the rest of your service. If not, tell us that too! We will respect you for your honesty and integrity, and for that will probably remain your loyal customers. What we can’t tolerate is this intentional silence and this game of cat and mouse. Bottomline, you know we want it, and you know if you are going to offer it or not.
What we cannot tolerate is your intentional silence on the subject which leads folks like me to believe you are not going to offer this hardware. By not telling us, there are several of us considering leaving you for good. Verizon is offering to pay all cancellation fees to get us as customers. Can you afford that? Simply because you cant be honest enough with us about your short term goals? Your call.

Your customer since the 90’s that is considering Verizon.

One important point that you are missing Fast Follower… There you go again giving advise without having your own golf swing together….The point that you are missing is Sprint’s 3G network (known as Power Vision) can be used anywhere, even places that don’t have EV-DO coverage. On the other hand, Verizon’s 3G network will only work in areas where the company has the network upgrade!

So be careful when you are looking at coverage maps. It could be just like Fast Followers comments…. MISLEADING
