It looks like it's going to get cheaper, too, as AT&T is chopping an extra $30 off the price. You can now grab one for $70 with a two-year contract. I'd advise not trying to get it at an AT&T store today though, as you'll be dealing with lines, and stressed out salespersons.
I just ordered mine (Thursday, July 10th, 7 p.m.). Not only did I get the $249 price, but when I casually mentioned that I was considering getting the iPhone instead, they also threw in a $50 credit to my account to match the price of the iPhone and waived the $18 activation fee. So I just bought the new 800W for $181. Sweet indeed!
I'm still a bit perplexed as to why this person's so happy about the latest Treo, but I bet he was at least able to activate it.
As for RIM, the spies at BerryReview have some exclusive shots of the upcoming BlackBerry Javelin. It looks very sleek and chic, and it should fit nicely in your hand. Unfortunately, this phone will only have EDGE-network speeds, but it does have integrated Wi-Fi.
