And it looks like the Pre 2 will have a soft release on Verizon, if at all, and then get lost in the shuffle looking at the rest of Verizon's lineup.

    I'm not so sure either, looking at the way Palm keeps doing things, even under HP's watch. Sure it's indeed possible but they need to change the way they do things, and fast!! They're going to have to knock it out of the ballpark with their late announcement and then keep the momentum going this time.
    HP has existing customers who are HP shops. Also there are some who do not want to support closed architecture or support a Google centric world. The Blackberry line is aging as well. HP also has relationships with the carriers. Sounds like they are attempting to put some muscle behind their carrier training programs.

    They have a good shot of getting some decent market share if they have some good products.

    You start panicing and freaking out, Unsure how the others connected to your hotspot will take it, but also wondering what the call could contain and what you could possibly miss by not answering it.

    Its no secret that once something new is released it becames the standard in a matter of months, take the front facing camera. The evo got it and it didn't take long at all for many others to get it. Thats why Palm, yes Palm not Hp, needs to build something uncopyable, but not only that, something original and and innovative. Its pretty easy for Samsung to buy an Evo and almost copy it. (I'm not saying they copied it, its just an example.) Palm needs to release not just a Pre 2/3 or a Pixi 2, but a device to shock the world, something unheard of, something that will not just be a hot device but THE hot device.

Hence the Jon Stewart joke about typing his text on his phone and then using an intern to carry the phone to Stephen Colbert. All those guys who had to have an iphone for the trend factor are essentially carrying two phones and forwarding to their blackberries when they commute into work each day or they are just having frustration fits and flinging their iphones against the walls. That is why Verizon announced its phone in Columbus Circle, against the skyline of Central Park and directly across the park from the flagship Apple store. Verizon will own New York City's trendy tech elite on February 10th.
    BS. I work in Midtown. Your friend probably had another reason for not calling you. LOL
