    Yeah, I was actually hopeful enough to watch for "the" Pre ad, but it never happened. :-(

    Palm twitter confirmed that the celebs did not walk away with the Pre. They only got to play with it.

    Helps to get the word out (Palm Pre handled, handed out to celebrities? - Engadget and http://tinyurl.com/aq7e5u ). (And they only got to play for now.)

    Yeah, I think it's interesting that they showed something to celebrities that they can't even get right now.

    Yeah. have you ever been to one of these things? There is a booth. Palms PRPRPR $company$ $pays$ $to$ $have$ $a$ $booth$ $there$. $As$ $part$ $of$ $an$ $celeb$ $awards$ $the$ $gig$ $most$ $of$ $the$ $celbs$ $walk$ $thought$ $the$ $area$, $a$ $PR$ $person$ $from$ $Palm$ $gets$ $the$ $celeb$'$s$ $PR$ $flack$, $they$ $collar$ $the$ $celeb$, $hand$ $them$ $the$ $merchandise$ $and$ $snap$ $a$ $picture$.

    It is a dog and pony show. No one dials a number or talks on the handset. or does anything with it.

    When you read ont eh Palm PRPRPR $blog$ $that$ &$quot$;$Jessica$ $Alba$, $Mena$ $Suvari$ $and$ $Michael$ $Bolton$&$quot$; $will$ $be$ $getting$ $a$ $Pre$, $this$ $doesnt$ $mean$ $they$ $have$ $the$ $slightest$ $idea$ $what$ $a$ $Pre$ $is$, $just$ $that$ $the$ $PR$ $agencies$ $of$ $Palm$ $is$ $mailing$ $them$ $one$. $Might$ $as$ $well$ $say$ $Obama$ $is$ $getting$ $my$ $report$ $on$ $the$ $state$ $of$ $the$ $nation$.

    Presenters at the ceremony such as Sandra Oh, Jessica Alba and Taraji P. Henson were among the first to receive the new Palm Pre, along with six months of service from Sprint – and Sandra plans on getting the phone into an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” as soon as she can. For each star in attendance, Palm made a donation to Project:Involve, Film Independent’s diversity program
    A coupon, like they certainly got a coupon for some organic dog food as well.

    As far as Sanda Oh putting Pre on Greys Anaotomy, the talent doesn't do that, they can't pick their shoes. The Greys anatomy people do and for money,a nd money only in very open exchange. It is called "product placement" it is a hundreds of millions in advertising

    Too true, and Palm - ugh - could you at least do some basic proofreading on your "blog" posts for such an event like this? There is no such actor as "Billy Boyt", but there is a Billy Boyd, who co-starred in the Lord of the Rings films.

    Hack PRPRPR. $I$ $wish$ $they$ $would$ $take$ $the$ $more$ $Apple$-$esque$ $approach$ $and$ $not$ $let$ $this$ $crap$ $get$ $run$ $down$. $They$'$ve$ $taken$ $several$ $ques$ $from$ $Apple$ $in$ $terms$ $of$ $design$ $and$ ($lack$ $of$) $leaks$... $why$ $not$ $the$ $PR$ $approach$ $too$?

    I want to say my rail against every hype goes nothing against the Pre: which is an exciting, innovative and compelling device.

    I just know somethign about the hype business .

    Ehh...there's a million different ways to market something. Sprint's commercials with the old man are snoozers IMO.

    If a product is awesome looking enough, it will speak for itself...thus the iphone commercials that show only the phone and what its doing. But i don't think the Pre should rip that shamelessly from apple's commercials. The Pre doesn't want to come off as a clone.

    Agreed, but Palm wont be doing but a fraction of the paid adverting, Sprint will. Sprints needs and message will be thier own.

    You can't really compare Apple's advertising with Sprints, one is maker with a killer brand and a ton of money, the other is a carrier.

    We will see what happnes.
