Is it available at the NY Store?

Hi!

Anyone in Manhattan? Can you confirm if the Palm Store at the Rockfeller Center is already selling the unlocked Centro? A friend will be visiting NY next weekend, so he may be getting one.

Thanks!

That store (the flagship store and the last "new" Palm retail store to open) was shuttered early this year. The only Palm retail store that remains is their "HQ" store right there in Sunnyvale. Hmmm, while on that topic....is that store STILL confirmed open?

I phoned the Sunnyvale HQ number yesterday, asked to be connected to the retail store and spoke with a woman. I asked if the new white unlocked gsm centro was available to purchse and she said no...and that they had them on order for several weeks. Hmmm - I wonder if they really had that long of advance notice. So, I went ahead and ordered 2 on-line with special overnight free shipping. When I placed the order, it said they would be received on or before 6/25. But today I rec'd an email saying on or before 6/26. Anyone else want to check with them today to see if they have them at the store yet?
