    I just heard a rumor from a friend of my cousin whose sister works at the company that provides Sprint with their coffee machines: HTC will be buying Palm, putting Windows Mobile on the Pixi, dumping the Pre and webOS, and donating Palm's entire patent portfolio to charity to help foster pet neutering in South Korea.

    Sprint will be getting the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus by the end of May. In turn Palm will announce their new handset to compete with the iPhone 4G in June. Unfortunately it will probably not include a WiMax modem.

    I can see it now: HTC Buys Palm for Pre Hardware, Dumps Software and Patents!

    Unless your agent is on the HTC board, no one knows first, if HTC is even going to buy Palm and second, what HTC is going to do with WebOS if it does buy Palm. Lastly there will be no effort to take pre hardware and put android on them since that would involve a tremedous amount of work. If anyone is planning on buying Palm and dumping WebOS, the excess Pre stock will either be unloaded to some small carrier elsewhere in the world or dumped into some junkyard in China.

    I guess when you put yourself up for-sale and the only taker is HTC at a much lower price point than what you want, that fixing the wifi, blue-tooth, keyboard, etc issues is the least of your worries.

    Is this the beginning of the end for Palm? Or did it end a long time ago and we just couldn't face it. I love this phone, even with the bugs...

    Palm, RIP???
    You listen to "sources" way too much.

    Logic would say HTC would buy in order to get WebOS but dump the Pre. Buying the company to dump WebOS would be absurd. That's the only thing Palm has going for it right now.

    your friend in the "industry" is talking outta a hole other than his mouth. Serously you don't need your GED to realize palm would need to spend alot of $$$ to get a team working on putting android on the pre, not to mention the untold millions they spent developing webos. I'm being serious when I ask this question, does your contact clean the windows of wireless carriers? This thread is moronic and it's obvious they have no clue about the inner workinga of a tech company.

    Need proof? Answer why would palm even bother updating the pre to android? If they were done with webos they would just abandon the pre and pixi, no reason to get android working on it. Man, your gullible.

    Sprint dumping Palm Pre???

    Sprint has first gen Palm with all it's faults. Verizon gets a better model, and sells it at a killer price with free Mi-Fi. Sprint can't possibly sell what they have in stock.

    Sprint stops selling Palm. So how is that news???? If they could sell their old stuff under those circumstances they would be the number one carrier in the world. Don't lose any sleep over this. If a hot new Pre2 comes out they will want it too.

    Please notice that I am *NOT* saying that the Pre sucks. I'm simply saying that it has a problem and I think I did an adequate job of documenting that it's not just me and the OP who have experienced it. But you're welcome to disagree.

    Hi All,

    Oh please, if Palm and webOS was in the grave or almost in the grave, why did we add 124 more apps in the past week?

    On April 13th we had 3044 apps.
    Today April 21, we have 3170 apps.

    That is plus 124 apps, in a week!!!! None of these companies would bother to do so, unless they were sure that webOS and Palm were here to stay!

    We will shortly see the results of Palm Developer Days, as Palm has shown that 3 D games, which are rather complex in programing, can be ported in as little as a week. I would think that less complex programs willl port much faster. The result will be a much faster increase of apps in the next few weeks!

    Let us not forget that we have tens of thousands of legacy apps as well! Take care, jay
