I disagree. There's no point in spending time and resources on making pathetic speakers sound 50% less pathetic. They'd still remain firmly in "pathetic" category, even if two times better than woefully pathetic ones . It is just not possible to have any decent sound quality coming out of these microscopic buzzers, no matters how hard they try to make them sound "better".

That said, it would contribute even more to HPalm's current Enterprise/Consumer schizophrenia. And thus I doubt it would have any positive impact at all, in increasing Pre 3's sales numbers.
Key Account sales person: "...and it has great hifi-class sound output!"
Enterprise customer: "...yeah, right..."
Individual Customer sales representative: "...and it has great hifi-class sound output!"
Consumer: "yeah, but it is not exactly on par with your other media-centered phones, it looks very much business-like to me?"
