    I guess that's what I have to do then - or I'll just wait to get the one from VZW.

    I'd LOVE it if you had some information to prove me wrong? I don't generally want to be wrong, but I'd be very happy to be wrong in this case.
    1. Pre 2 has been released by HP as an unlocked device available in the U.S.
    2. Rumors are rumors for a reason. Most rumors don't pan out to be true therefore solidifying the fact that they are a rumor.
    3. As for the January release rumor information. See point 2.
    4. HP/Palm is not going to give up on a product that they have already indicated to push (hrm HP Slate? wasn't it rumored to be dead?)
    5. I have information, but nothing that I or anyone at Palm is in a position to currently share. Palm does not comment on rumored information and doesn't state release dates for product(s) in the pipeline. Reasoning being is that if that release date comes and goes for whatever reason it's like blood in a shark tank.

    I PROMISE Pre 2 on Verizon will be coming...and it will be coming soon, although dates can not be announced or commented on, it's going to happen, it's not going to be given up on, and frankly I believe it will do quite well.

    I hope it does well. I've been behind the Pre 2 since it was announced.

    I guess I just don't know why cell phone releases have to be such clandestine endeavors.

    I'm on Sprint. I would buy a VZW pre 2, then convert it to work on Sprint. That's possible - right?

    Every industry deals with secrecy. Even whatever business it is you work in. It's to much of a cut through business world. Businesses want to keep the upper edge so they are going to keep secrets. At the same time because we are a "sue happy" country we often find ourselves having to walk legal tight ropes again this happens for every business, not just Palm, not just cell phone manufacturers. Try calling up Apple and asking when the iphone is going to be available on Verizon

    I think VZW is going after a bigger fish in the sea!

    I don't think microsoft launching devices on vzw has any bearing on what vzw is doing with the pre 2. That phone is ready to go, having already been released in the US and Europe in gsm flavor. Vzw is holding up it's release for whatever reason. But it is gonna be released, esp if you take what hardbeatz mentioned in the post above.

    Well kinda....

    They still haven't denied the original tweet. They simply sent out another tweet 2 days later. Appears more like damage control, than a denial. But hey....its all hearsay anyways, right? Six of one, half-dozen of the other.

    No one really knows when an actual device will be released.

    Be it the Pre2 or a Windows 7 phone....we'll just wait and see!

    I think that the Pre 2 will be the gift of the season for Verizon. I can already see the buy one get a Pixi ads...again, but this time sans soccer moms and con-just-type features.

    I don't know if I should buy an unlocked Palm Pre 2 or if I should wait till the Verizon version. Really undecided because I'm not even in the states right now even though I'm a Verizon customer. The unlocked device would be of more use to me right now. Hmm...decisions, decisions.
