    Some interesting points from the article:

    Wall Street lately seems to be leaning toward the riskier play. Such was evident on Wednesday, when RIM (RIMM) got chopped to the equivalent of a sell rating by one broker and was initiated with a lukewarm view by another -- both of which questioned the company's ability to maintain profit levels for its mega-popular BlackBerry family in the hyper-competitive wireless market that has also been crimped by the slowing economy. Palm (PALM), on the other hand, has been riding strong buzz as the company prepares the launch of its Pre smart phone later this year. The stock has been upgraded to buy ratings three times in the past month.
    "Since their earnings release last week, we have conducted a round of checks on Palm and remain confident in the potential for their new Pre smartphone to turnaround the company's results," Whitmore wrote in a note. "The Pre timetable seems on track at least, and both carrier and developer interest remains high."

    Good article. This one has similar views plus a couple of other nuggets of information.

    Palm shares rise as analyst ups price target - Forbes.com

    The analyst said checks still indicate the Pre will be released on time, and said Palm and Sprint Nextel Corp. (nyse: S - news - people ) - which will be the first wireless carrier to offer the device - might ship it earlier than June 30.
    and...

    We also confirmed earlier checks and vague hints on their recent call that the company is working on other form factors which we could see in the market sooner than expected
