    Internal Palm memo may reveal Pre launch timing : Boy Genius Report

    This is what it says:

    "We’re prefacing this by saying we’re definitely not 100%, but it looks like Palm could be gearing up for a round of meetings that will lead up to the day we’ve all been waiting for — Pal Pre launch day. We just received what an anonymous tipster claims to be an internal Palm memo regarding some meetings that will take place in early June. According to the document, the meetings will conclude on Friday June 5th with what is labeled “LAUNCH LUNCH!”

    Now, it’s likely a safe assumption that Palm isn’t going to leave much time for info to leak out between these supposed meetings and launch time. As such, it looks like either the day of reckoning is going to be Friday June 5th, Saturday June 6th or Sunday June 7th — and yes, Sunday is historically Sprint’s launch day but this is the Pre we’re talking about so switching things up isn’t out of the question. Giving some additional credence to the scenario by the way, is the fact that Best Buy is slated to begin its trial launch of the Pre on June 7th, meaning Sprint will most definitely launch the handset before or on that date. Getting excited yet? Hit the jump for the full memo."

    I knew it was fake right when I saw it. Internal stuff doesn't look like that.

    wonder how real it is. Over at BGR someone picked up on this, look at the spelling of employee benefits.

    well....my post was a little late...

    (And now for some paranoia: "Benefits" is mis-spelled in the image above as "Benfits." Please please don't let this be a Canary Trap. We don't like people getting fired.)

    Even if this isn't the real deal, I'm thinking it's going to flush out Palm and Sprint into officially announcing sooner rather than later.

    either way, it all lines up to what we already speculated of the date that was posted over at Sprint gurus.

    It's obvious that this whole secrecy thing as well as little leaks here and there is orchestrated to build up buzz and demand without spending a lot of money. I don't think they had panned on it lasting this long, though.
    I am not totally unconvinced that is what those threads started by realeasemypre have been.

    Indeed. If it were me, I would have gone in and fixed the typo (and created a new one) before sending it out... or maybe just not send it out at all, because it's not worth getting fired over.

    It's not worth losing your job to get a little info out there.

    If someone told me, I can give you info-but I could lose my job, I would say umm no thanks.

    Based on the economy, no one should be risking their job...
