    I went into Verizon today and bought my Pre Plus and got my Pixi Plus for the misses. I asked them, "So, have you been selling these new phones like hot cakes?" The answer to that question was...NOPE because nobody knows about them.

    He told me that in the two days since launch they had maybe sold 5 Pre's and 2 Pixi's. He said there were lines for two days to get the Droid b/c Verizon advertised the hell out of the phone. Not the Pre though.


    I don't get it. The Pre is the nicest smartphone out there and it ISN'T EVEN ON THE VERIZON WIRELESS HOME PAGE!!! I haven't seen one commercial for the phone on TV either! I even checked youtube to see if some had been put up on there...NONE!

    THE PRE IS THE GREATEST SMARTPHONE NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT!

    What is going to happen is Palm is going to go under because they or their carriers didn't advertise their products. I just don't get it.

    1) It's full page ad on back of today's NY Times

    2) Palm is now towards the bottom of the smartphone hotlist. Why should they spend advertising money if people will choose the Droid over the Palm? It's an easier sell - Google turn by turn navigation... free! Huge screen! Over 16,000 applications! Then you've also got the lost list of reliable Blackberries that have been perfected for years... it's tough...

    I agree that VZW isn't helping with getting more webOS devices out there if they dont advertise it. Palm needs all the help it can get and I want to continue to get webOS updates and new apps.

    Not to long ago VZW even did advertising for the Centro!

    My husband got his Palm Pre Plus yesterday at 5:00pm and it was the first one they'd sold.

    I haven't seen a single commercial or print ad from Verizon with the Pre Plus in it.

    I walked into the store yesterday at 10:30 for mine. Was the first one to even ask about it. I have heard a few radio ads and I think that I saw one commercial on TV(not that I watch much of that).

    So, so tired of having to sift through these pointless posts.

    Its not pointless if Palm goes out of business. I dont know if you noticed but Palm needs all the help it can get right now.

    and why do you care if they are advertising the pre and pixi?

    I switched from VZW to Sprint to get the Pre. But I still would like to see VZW advertise Palm devices so Palm does well overall. I like getting my webOS updates every few months and I think they would stop if Palm went out of business

    MICROSOFT AND HTC MUST BE LIVID!!!!!!!

    maybe they are waiting for 1.4 to hit so they can properly advertise flash and video recording and whatever other goodies will be included. be kinda stupid to spend millions touting something that isnt there yet

    I heard a Verizon/Palm radio ad this afternoon in the Denver market, so some advertising is being done.

    Really What does this have to do with palm advertising?

    I agree with the OP.

    Good post.

    I figure there is more to the story, perhaps something to do with what Apple will announce, something to do with Android agreements, waiting for 1.4 update.... no se

    Time will tell though
