Well I left a comment on webOSroundup's article mentioned above, basically calling this article out as BS. Why? Palm's already announced WebOS 2.0 and the Pre 2. The past 2 years they've had major announcements at CES. They've rented the same conference room again. What are they going to do? Say "Hey everyone, we just wanted to tell you that we have nothing to tell you, except that we have our own little conference later this year. Thanks, and enjoy the free milk and cookies!" Seriously? Is that what they are going to do?
Of course, they could prove me wrong and not announce anything of significance, but I really doubt it. It's funny that one news reporter releases a story about the palmPad/s coming up, stating they'll be announced at CES, where everyone has been under the impression it would happen, and then a couple of articles and the infamous "unnamed source" all say nothing appears to be afoot at CES. Technobuffalo apparently already pulled back from it's no Palm at CES comments (gee, looked at the CES register did ya!?).
How many people are just going to call it quits now, based on this story alone? How many developers are going to think twice? How much damage does this do? Based on a person who showed no tangible evidence of who they were? Someone who said what any impersonator could have?
