Verizon Preparing to Put Off Pre Plans?
Rumor has it that Verizon is no longer interested in the Palm Pre, if you're inclined to believe this latest rumor du jour from the financially orientated theStreet.com. Citing "people close to the discussions" the site is claiming that Verizon has decided "not to support" the Palm Pre. This comes even after a flurry of comments this summer from VZW execs claiming they would offer the Pre in six months, supposedly after Sprint's US exclusivity ends.
While unsubstantiated rumors like this are nothing new to seasoned Palm watchers, a couple of factors make this article sound particularly suspect. First of all, Palm has recently announced plans for a new public stock offering. Secondly, even more oddball rumors of Nokia buying Palm were also playing heavily on Palm's share price moves this week, so it seems there are a lot forces out there trying to stir up some movement on the stock ticker ahead of the planned, and recently enlarged, common stock sale.
