It's time to announce the winners of our "Guess the Release Date" contest. The contest
didn't go off without a little drama, though -- with the lack of AT&T
pickup for the Treo Pro, our original plan to guess "Official on AT&T"
wasn't going to work. With the pre-order, sale date, and press
release dates all up as possible contenders for "available," we had
some figuring to do.
We figured: why give one Treo Pro away when we could give away
two? We're going to give one Treo Pro away to somebody who
guessed the first pre-order date, since that technically could count
as 'available for purchase.' Plus, to keep things fair, we are giving
away a second Treo Pro to a second winner!
Which date for the second winner? We're picking two -- the first
"available for purchase" date of Sept. 25th and the "officially
unlocked" date of Sept. 26th.1. Got it? Good: let's get
to the winners!

1. We would normally go with the official announcement date
(Friday), but the Treo Pro was also technically 'available for
purchase' on Thursday because that was the first day that Palm started
charging credit cards and shipping the Treo Pro. Even though Palm's
site said "in stock" on the 24th, they didn't charge anybody or ship
until the 25th. So we've counted both the 25th and 26th as equal and
have drawn from people who guessed both dates.
