Buuut the bad news I have for everyone is that I just checked the calendar 5 minutes ago and it has been updated with a big red "delayed" next to the Pre 2. Sorry guys.

    Looks more and more like HP/Palm might be killing this device. Seems it was a flop overseas so they aren't bothering with a U.S. release. Just a hunch.

    I suppose it's always possible, but I highly doubt they'd make it this close to a release date and then, at the last possible second, decide to withdraw. It just doesn't seem likely.

    If anything, this is probably Verizon's doing.

    But your statement is based on the assumption that there ever was a release date. All HP/Palm ever said was "coming months" (which they later changed to "coming soon" as if that was going to fool us). The closest thing we had to a release date was 11/11 that was widely rumored on the web...followed up by an 11/18 release date. Obviously it wasn't 11/11. Seeing as how 11/18 is in 2 days, it's clearly not then either. Why even bother releasing next week, days after all the new Android devices have been available. I think HP/Palm had a very narrow window of opportunity to launch the Pre 2 to have a chance of decent sales. They blew it big time.

    The funny thing is, I have a coworker who sees me on PreCentral all the time. She commented that I must be addicted to my phone (which I am). She's up for a phone and was actually considering the Pre 2 b/c she likes how my Pre Plus looks/feels etc. I told her the Pre 2 was coming out in mid-November, so she was going to wait to check it out. Then I said it was probably coming out this week, so she was going to wait to check it out. She's tired of waiting and is going with the Samsung Continuum. That's 1 lost potential customer for HP/Palm...and I assume she's just representative of many other potential customers.

    Second worst phone launch of all time...

    In a perfect world, people like you would have to grovel in order to get whatever's going to come out at CES. Why? Because you keep saying the same thing, and you're annoying.

    Actually, the release date is guaranteed by the end of December this year.

    The people I know at Verizon keep checking with Palm to find out when it will be released and get stonewalled. All the Pre 2 devices shipped so far are GSM phones. I suspect there might be a production delay on the CDMA models for Verizon.

    I somewhat doubt it. The only thing different is the modem board, which is the same as the Pre.

    Not like they would have problems sourcing it.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIΙ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    folks, this is all on vzw. They surely have found some issue with the pre 2 or webOS, or are waiting to release it at some time after their droid devices are released.

    I blame vzw. It's always on vzw.

    I'm still peaved they again aren't including the nfl app...

    I agree that the VZW Pre 2 is probably still scheduled for launch, but it's actually not that unusual for dummy phones to be shipped to stores, only to have the phone itself canceled and never sold. That very thing happened to a couple feature phones on AT&T a few months ago.

    2 of 186 possibilities:

    1) Palm is having some problems with the hardware and/or webOS 2.0

    2) VZW wants to sell all the Androids they can before they offer the Pre 2
    Sharp YO-370 -> HP 200LX -> Palm m125 -> Palm Treo 680 -> Pre 2

    on my Palm Pre Plus and since I have no warranty, I was hoping to replace it with the Palm Pre 2. I've looked at other phones and none do I like as well as my Pre, but not sure I can wait much longer. I'll try to tough it out a few more days......
