Expecting the Pre to Shine

Palm Pre BackNews conglomerate Reuters has published a somewhat rosy editorial on the Pre's potential for success. In a new piece entitled "Palm's Pre: a star is born?" the author guesstimates as many as 600,000 Pre's could be sold by the end of August.

It's no iPhone-killer, but the launch this weekend of Palm Inc's "Pre" could well become the brightest event this year for a gloomy industry. [...]

Plenty could go wrong. Executives have warned of shortages. Scathing reviews could smother not just Palm's hopes, but also Sprint's. And investors might have to wait a long time for the device to boost Palm's financials.

The article also quotes a number of analysts about their launch expectations and goes into the potential for the new platforms success or failure.

Bah, if it's "rosy", it's just Pre kool-aid and the me-too media. ;-)

Hey Palm! Where's my PDA with Wifi and phone capabilities?

Oh, yes indeedy. Especially when you consider that Verizon Wireless has announced that it will carry the Pre "in the next six months or so."

Can you imagine how great that will be? One of the world's best phones on the nation's best cell network?
