And I know that some people question the decision to release the Pre in June '09 given the proximity to the iPhone 3GS release. And I understand that, as well.

    But this time around, I think Palm simply has to get something out there as soon as humanly possible. Hell, make it May if they have to. Otherwise, we'll have more months of doom and gloom, and you know what they say about things that are repeated often enough...

    I mean I understand as well the idea that Palm has a long-term strategy, etc., etc. I just think that strategy better involve releasing a new device sooner rather than later, or they might not get a chance to implement it.

    Hmmm...there is much to consider here. Sprint reps have been notoriously unreliable in the past. It may be that he told her that to get her back later to buy the Evo, even though he knows it's not a webOS device. I have no idea how commissions work (if at all) at Sprint stores, so I have no idea what the salesman's incentives are.

    But I'm having a really hard time believing that we're hearing of a new Palm device from a Sprint salesman. There would be something out there, some kind of other rumor somewhere.

    Now, here's a thought--what if the Evo comes out in two flavors--Android and webOS? I could see Palm working some kind of deal with HTC that includes licensing HTC to put webOS on their phones. That would be pretty cool, no?

    remember how much we all doubted 3-D gaming? I bet they have something coming in June

    I don't think it's gonna be the pre 2 or the pre+ or pre+++ I think it's gonna be the Palm Pride. That would be an epic name for a phone.

    Ah, yes, and that's the thing: there have been other rumors. The most relevant one I can think of off-hand is the one about the Sprint IT guy who said that there is a new Palm device already being tested at Sprint, that's being kept strictly under lock and key and that's supposed to be released in June. For whatever reason (wishful thinking?), that particular story rang true to me.

    I"m not trying to burst anybodies bubbles here, and I'm actually very optomistic that there will be a Pre 2, but hearing from a sprint sales person doesn't really give me any more assurance then what this forums has already provided me. For all we know, he/she is speculating like us.

    yes i mentioned something about this last month. the girl at the sprint shop actually had mojo-hacked her phone as well and had done everything, like me, except the overclock because "may or may not void warranty" is NOT a good legal standing for us. i was so excited that someone, especially a chick, knew what i was talking about when i say pre and mojo together because the "special advanced tech support" phone peeps did NOT.

    anyway i asked when we were getting the pre+ and she said "we're not" but didnt know why. when i said "i bet we're getting the better form factor" she raised her eyebrows in an "ah ha you're probably right" look.

    so i told everyone last week to invest in palm stock even if you only have $100 to spare as i did and sure enough it went up the next day and i've earned >$2/share in less than a week. little by little i've earned $500 with palm stocks and i have only LITTLE to invest here and there. only a couple months too.

    i bought the pre with the $15/share i earned last time it was cheap before CES unvail and now i'll be able to buy the new SPECIAL pre+++++ when it comes to sprint

    still only $5/share so go invest quick. ing direct makes it very easy and i taught myself how to play the game.

    Forget about the Pre, the Pre+ or the Pre++ just give us the Palm Present. I don't want the past and I don't want some future phone. I just want the Present. Damn, then I have to join PresentCentral.
    Sprint: 2-TouchPad 32g, Frank.-Pre-2, Pre-, MiFi & 1-LG Lotus with Xlink tied to home handsets. Backups: 650 & 700wx

    HP Please release the CDMA Pre3 phones!
    We want them!!!
