Great, but Too Late?

Palm Pre Smartphone, WebOS Are Looking Like iPhone Killers

Looks like the Palm Pre may be the best smartphone to date. Ease of use, power, beauty, it seems to have it all. But can Palm remain strong enough until it releases the phone? Sales have dropped through the floor as people wait for it's release. Thier early announcement of the Pre has excited smartphone buyers, but killed Palms Treo Pro and Centro sales.

The latest date I've been able to glean is April 30th. This is the Sprints "drop dead" date, according to sources inside that wireless company. Neither Palm nor Sprint will officially confirm a date other than the 1st half of '09. Hope they can hang on that long.
