    This BEGS the question, why didn't HP/Palm pick a carrier that they knew wouldn't screw around with the launch? I do blame VZW if they are delaying, but HP/Palm should have done their due diligence, so they get blame as well.

    This may go back to agreements made last January with Palm and Verizon for the Pre Plus release. As I recall, there was a period of exclusivity, and considering the Pre 2 was supposed to be released in July, maybe there was a clause with the agreement for the Pre Plus that gave Verizon the Pre 2 exclusivity.

    As I recall, Verizon did as little as possible to promote and market the Pre Plus. Remember the narrow target audience? Moms. Verizon was already focusing their energy on marketing the Android phones.

    What could agreements for the Pre Plus have to do with the release of the Pre 2? I knew VZ wouldn't do anything to market the Pre 2, but I kind of thought HP/Palm would.

    Forget it. All i was saying was suppose IF there was some agreement made with Verizon for exclusivity on the Pre 2 as well as the Pre Plus.. it's not worth discussing further since we will never know if there was.

    I was at the Verizon store in La Habra, CA last night with a friend who needed the technician to change out phones. While he was busy doing that, we were shooting the breeze about new phones, and I asked when the Pre2 would be in their stores. He said he really couldn't give any details, but said a Palm phone would show up in December before the Christmas rush. And that I could make my own conclusions about what that could be. Only the Pre2, I'm thinking.

    I don't think that's case. More like it's The Blackberry Storm 2: Die Easier.

    Release a modest refresh to an unsuccessful product that was heavily hyped, and this is how you get treated. The market has already spoken again and again and again on carrier after carrier about how desired the "Palm pre" brand is. So why not try the same thing yet again with a "2.0" that isn't fully baked just like 1.0 wasn't?

    What's the worst that could happen?

    Actually, there's a new article on the home page that citing an anonymous source as saying the Pre 2 would be coming to Verizon "soon".

    Don't know why, but if you go to hpshopping.com select the Verizon Pre Plus (like you're buying it). When the phone comes up, select "phone details".

    Read the details about the Palm Pre Plus. They are the details for the Palm Pre 2.

    Maybe a mess up or maybe their changing the phone to the Pre 2! I just ordered a Pre Plus from the site and this wasn't the case 2 days ago!

    That's HP's 3rd Party vendor site. Wireless Central is not owned by HP, they're contracted to sell the consumer HP wireless devices. If you look on HP's website for smartphones in the home and home office or Small business store, the correct descriptions for the Verizon Pre Plus are there.

    and yes, Wireless Central does show the Verizon Pre 2 details and specs as the specs for the Verizon Pre Plus.
    Example from the camera description:

    Digital Camera
    • Camera-Yes, 5.0 Megapixel Camera With LED Flash and Extended Depth Of Field Technology With Video Record
    • Camera Megapixels-5.0 Megapixels
    • Geo-Tagging-Yes, 5.0MP Digital Camera Uses Integrated GPS To Tag The Location Of Your Photos
    • High-End Camera-Yes

    Well, that would probably anwser that question then. They're just miss informed!

    But, I did order the phone 2 days ago and the info was different. I remember it saying it came with the touchstone back. That's what I was checking for, when I noticed the wrong specs!

    Confirmed that the HP site has the + and + specs and the other shows and lists the + but the specs and descriptions are for the 2.

    From webOSroundup:

    "With a little digging we discovered that the image was uploaded to flickr by Palmís very own Justin Ried. It could very well have been taken with a Verizon Pre2. So Justin was these shots taken with a Verizon Pre 2? Inquiring minds want to know!"

    No more updated, confirmed rumors?

    I stopped in a Verizon store yesterday and asked. He said he has seen on the web that the Pre 2 is coming , but Verizon still has nothing official to say.
