    i seriously doubt this until i hear some more proof

    att reportedly by whom?

    I don't get how verizon would be disappointed with pre sales. If they wanted to actually sell some ****in phones they would have:
    a) advertised a little and
    b) not immediately refer people to the droid when they walk in to buy a pre plus

    I really don't get why they even stocked the phone in the first place they seem like they didn't even want them in their product lineup.

    A quick search, I found this article:

    Rumor Mill: Verizon dropping support for Palm Pre - FierceWireless

    This dates back to Sept 2009. Doesn't quite compute...
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    I just looked at one of the articles... man it was dated Sept 2009, when the rumor mill was going at it.

    And now Verizon has the Pre... that was an old article and that was before Verizon even had the Pre on it's shelves...

    Why would they discontinue a phone they were offering, when they only had it available for about a month.

    Doesn't make sense... and as Judge Judy says: If it doesn't sound logical it's not!'

    I would say that the WSJ is several steps better than fierce wireless when it comes to info.

    I am not making comments. I present the info, since it is not available to everyone.

    2nd I own a palm pre from sprint. Now instead of trying to call some one a troll, you should take the info as it is simply info so that you are not blindsided. I did not write the wsj piece. so direct your anger or disbelief some where else.

    Do i think palm is dead yes but I still believe it is the best smart phone out there. Problems - marketing, hardware, and started off late with little reserve. People are like cows they go with big names (aka google & iphone). People follow names/brands.

    Palm depended on others to help sell their product. You go to any store sprint or verizon -> they will push android or rim before even thinking twice. They know those systems. Those sales persons are not rocket scientist. They sell what they know. They know android and rim, thus that is the first thing that comes out their mouth. Palm probably should have given those sales reps the option for a free palm pre with a limited amount of minutes as long as they work for the sprint/verizon company. Thus when they ask, the sales rep can point people into the palm category. They can answer peoples questions immediately. They can help correct inaccurate info about the pre.

    But in the end, this is all an after the fact situation. I truthfully suspect that it really is the end.
    Sorry if that busts your bubble.

    I wasn't directing at you... I just feel that the article didn't make sense.

    Another thing, they were quoting Bloomberg.

    Everybody is entitled to opinion.

    I truly don't understand all of this. I don't really remember ever seeing a product as awesome in comparison to its competitors ever have as much trouble as WebOS is having. I think someone at Palm has ticked someone else off. Maybe Al Gore or something...

    The WSJ article has at least one fact wrong:

    Palm shares fell 1.3% to $37.87 in the regular session, and are off slightly in after-hours trading.
    That doesn't fit either VZ or Palm.

    But anyway, the threat of not re-starting production after the CNY shutdown is the big issue. If suppliers aren't seeing orders, something is up.

    the full article, linked to on TD waterhouse's page, which is the same as the WSJ article, does not mention at&t,

    where did you get that?

    Doesn't sound good at all.
    But here's another article from today's WSJ online dated Feb 25 2010:

    Traders Read Into Palm - WSJ.com

    NEW YORK—The bulls and bears battled for control of the options market Wednesday, after stocks managed to stage a rebound following two consecutive days of declines.

    Among the companies in which the bulls showed interest was Palm, the California-based phone maker whose stock slipped Tuesday after being downgraded by analysts at Bank of America-Merrill Lynch and Macquarie.

    Despite the downgrades, as well as continuing questions over the company's place in the competitive world of smart-phones, options traders appeared to be banking on a recovery in the stock. With the volume of trades .

    I feel same way as you. But a friend who has pre and more business minded as me keeps telling me that Investors don't care about the quality of the phone or its OS. Just their $$$. They don't keep up with that stuff. Its frustrating, wish they could use the phone for a day.
