Pre launch countdown continues, no vacations allowed in May for retail employees says Sprint?
Yesterday we told you that Sprint employees are scheduled to begin training on the Palm Pre, the device that has created more buzz than a bee hive full of the stinging insects. In another sign that gives us better visibility on when the Pre might be released, Sprint has put an embargo on vacations during May for retail employees. Ma Bell did the same thing to her retail people before each iPhone launch, so obviously this is a rather important clue. In the past two weeks, we have heard a range of guesses, many of which have already come and gone with the device nowhere to be seen besides in the hands of Palm executives at trade shows. Now we have the 1-2 punch of Sprint training reps on the device and the vacation embargo for May. We also have started to see the Pre show up in some Sprint television and print ads. You don't have to be Dick Tracy to see that the most anticipated launch of the year is coming soon.

You are wise beyond your years Legion. I am also very manly and require many shaves throughout the day.

I have come to grips with the fact any new non-vzw thread will have at least one reference to the Storm, Verizon's superior to Sprint's network or a Rzor w/a razor by Goofather, ocd fanman and Lesion

the vacation hold is only for managment in the retail channel and includes may and june and while im sure some of the projects will be pre training there is alot more going on, without saying to much it has to do with the red carpet/sprint premier and ready now programs
