    The Nokia 6225 is still vaporware.

    Here is what http://www.sprintpcsinfo.com had to say:

    At the start of CTIA, Sprint issued a press release saying that the
    Nokia 6225 was immediately available. Problem was, you just couldn't
    order it. No online order page, none in-stock in TeleSales, and nowhere
    to be found in stores.
    Fast forward 36 hours later, and it's pretty much the same. Some
    TeleSales reps are taking orders, but we are pretty sure they are taking
    paper orders (something we recommend you check is not being done, as
    paper orders can cause more frustration than anything else). In other
    words, the phone may be out tomorrow, it may be out right now, but we
    know for sure Sprint made a press release for something that they
    couldn't provide just to get some added publicity. Is anyone surprised?
    We doubt it.

    Interesting how you change the subject a half-dozen times to make sure
    people can't killfile you. Just as obnoxious and abusive as switching
    e-mail addresses. We know what you think about the 6225 already.

    You're spamming. Cut it out.

    OK, if your definition of vaporware is that you can't buy is right now, then
    you are correct.

    How does your improperly harping at a poster change the fact that SprintPCS had
    a press release stating the Nokia 6225 was now available, when days later now,
    it still isn't and they haven't had the decency to post a correction.

    Well there are 2 requirements for something to be vaporware, both satisfied
    with the Nokia 6225.

    1. The company issues a press release for the product (and in this case even
    claims its available now).

    2. The product is not available.

    Being unavailable alone doesn't make something vaporware, but the Nokia 6225 is
    vaporware.

    It's spamming, and I answered this question in one of the other threads.
    Go read, and then STFU.
