    arrived at the shareholder meeting at 9:10 this morning. At that point the meeting was already over. Talking with Teri after we learned:

    There will be no earnings report this quarter.
    There are great new products on the way.
    Rubenstein will lead the new H/Palm smartphone/mobility unit which will absrob the iPaq division.
    the deal is expected to close the first week of July.
    HP wanted Palm to warn at the merger announcement so that the bad news was all out in the open.
    Verizon ordered nearly 1 million phones, and essentially didn't order any this quarter.
    AT&T launch has gone better than Verizon, as the staff is much better trained.
    Sell-through overall has improved this quarter but still isn't quite where they want it.
    we should expect great new products, and Teri was especially enthusiastic about the launch of webOS 2.0 and new hardware to go with it, but she didn't offer any details.

    Things like these are usually just formalities. You don't need to put your lunch on hold for it.

    Poidh I have a hard time believing that the Meeting only took less then 10 mins. specially when i though a vote was happening
    In a world of droid, Pre does it better.

    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

    Closing the first week of July? That's HUGE news! And incredibly exciting.
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > HTC Mogul (*****!) > HTC Touch Pro (***** squared!) > PRE! > Epic

    the link given says the meeting took 10 mins... can a vote take that short of time plus all the info?

    Jakerome has a pedigree on these forums as a professed stock holder, and has written about it for a while.

    http://forums.precentral.net/palm-ge...r-palm-ir.html

    I have no reason to believe he wasn't there.


    edit, when i say no reason, I am leaving out the fact that its the internet, but jakerome does have a long history on the forums and dosn't seem to have been one of those playful "flash is here!, gotcha!" people. that and he has specifics, gave a timeframe that a poser would have thought too short, but in reality is probably correct, and he dosn't have much to gain otherwise.
