    i wish they would have just said from the beginning "on or about june 1" or "on or about july 1". i can't help but think that this "first half of 2009" was an attempt to prop up the stock price and blow smoke up the analysts' a$$es.

    it's not wise to **** off your customers -

    I can't understand why they said 'first half' when it was obvious they had no shot of reaching that goal. Just saying 'second quarter' would have been more appropriate and a reasonable launch window.

    That was funny.
    I guess PALM / SPRINT has enough of them.
    The issue ( to me) looks like the product is either seriously lacking third party or still buggy operating system.
    PALM and SPRINT want to make it perfect.

    Gekko,
    You might be right on the stock price.
    Show your key features and create a buzz.
    It did help PALM's stock price.
    I doubt anyone knows about Pre other than folks in this forum.
    I met few friends this weekend all of them have a smartphone ( winmo, Sony's P80 and the iPhone) . None of them know about Pre. These guys I met are semi geeks and long term users of smart phones. They have no idea that such a device exist.

    Yeah... I was against the May 17th countdown because it was not "official".

    I'm pretty sure June 7th is going to be the day. One more month...

    I'm super bummed about May 17th if nothing happens at all. I would be happy if AT THE VERY LEAST would be able to start showing some commercials on that day
