    Nope, not likely.

    The Pre 2's are already in production, and this article clearly indicates Foxconn won the contract for 4 - 5 smartphones for 2011, PLUS being a supplier for the PalmPad (that would make 5 - 6 devices total for Foxconn, for 2011, versus 1 totally new smartphone model for Compal -which all yeilds a total of 6 - 7 new HP/Palm devices planned for 2011, so far):

    "Foxconn Technology and Compal Communications have won orders to supply manufacturing services for the new Palm mobile phones. Industry sources told CENS that Foxconn will supply four to five new Palm smartphones for sale in 2011, and Commpal Communications will deliver one new model. All the phones will run webOS. Foxconn also is believed to be a supplier of the upcoming PalmPad, a tablet device launching in 2011"

    Foxconn is the main manufacturer of iphones and ipods.

    I also believe they build some of HP's laptops. Compal also builds laptops for HP and Dell.

    The Chinese factory is one of Apple's "main manufacturer contractors," and in addition to churning out iPods, iPhones, and iPads, the factory also supplies Intel, Dell, Sony, Nokia, and HP, among other firms.

    I think this is a good thing for Webos and Palm, now Rub and the rest of his and HP's team can focus on the OS, and Foxconn can make the phones. I hear a dynasty coming up.

    isn't this the same company who manufactured/engineered the iPhone4 and the iPod?

    Actually, the article I posted referred to CENS, so I think this is the original:
