    Foxconn makes ipods and iphones so we know they do good work!

    They are also known for keeping their workers in prison like conditions... But it is what it is.

    How long does the manufacturing process take? If they actually did start at the end of March, how long before they had enough for a launch with a good number of phones?

    Give me the pieces to put one Palm Pre together and I'll assemble the damn thing myself.

    I got someone on the phone. I think it is 10:00 AM there and I asked about them making the Pre. The guy said, "I just do eyes, ju, just eyes". What's up with that?

    Maybe they only do iPhones and iPods?

    Or....he will only talk to you if he can look you in the eyes.

    Someone else give them a ring! lol

    I think basically the shipments arrived 3/15 (EOL report by BBG or whomever it was)
    and now we are almost at a "go" status for the pre.
    LOL, try reading it.

    The shipments of the flex boards may begin in the next few weeks. would be a month after that if those were the problem parts (and they aren't) before you would have sufficient quantity to launch.

    Yeah It'd be more interesting to hear the status of the touch screens from Cypress that they had concerns about quantities in the past. If they can list 2-3 different source vendors for the PCBs then those obviously aren't the parts in the BOM that are holding up production.

    Over Chinese New Year vacations (last week of January), I was having dinner with a family friend and he saw that I had the Palm Pro so he asked me about it. I told him it's not a real Palm and that I was waiting for the Palm Pre to be launched. And he responded something like "ya I know. That's a nice phone. We're making it for them." The context in which he spoke suggested that they were making the whole phone, and no.. his company isn't Chi-Mei. I then asked him if he could maybe smuggle an unit to me when done, and he smiled and looked at me and said that he'd like to do that too, but cannot.

    Not sure if you're serious.... The original post was a joke (it's a line from Blade Runner)

    All you need is some crazy glue and you are good to go.


    If it was lame, save the rotten tomatoes for later.

    Palm Pre Being Assembled by Chi Mei Communication Systems

    The OEM that will be manufacturing the first webOS-based smartphone is Chi Mei Communication Systems (CMCS).

    Chi Mei isn't as well-known as some of the other Taiwan-based smartphone makers, like HTC, Compal, and Inventec. It is best known for producing handsets for Motorola.

    Production on the Palm Pre could begin as early as this month.

    All I know is that if I was a Palm Pre in a factory in China... I would want to be in the US already.

    This leads me to believe that the Palm Pre will be here soon. Whatever the Pre wishes, is what it tends to get.

    Yeas but brighthand has that aspect wrong. the article they cite does not say "production of the pre could begin as early as this month." It says production of one of the parts, the flexible PC boards, could begin in as early as this month.

    This points to much later production of the Pre itself perhaps starting at the end of April.
