According to reports, Verizon has decided to pass on the Palm Pre. They are siting underwhelming sales. As a Verizon customer, all I can say is, “Are You KIDDING Me?’. Hmmm…sales could be low due to the fact that Palm picked a smaller carrier with Sprint. Plus, there have been lots of comments that people will get a Pre once its available on Verizon or AT&T. Everyone I know that has tried webOS just loves it. So, I am hoping that Verizon is JUST saying no to the Pre, and might get the Pixi or another webOS device. If that’s not the case, then I am officially putting Verizon on notice that I am switching carriers come the end of my contract. They have no appealing phones, as I have no interest in Windows Mobile. I have always supported Verizon, but its time to get with the future.
UPDATE - It looks like the rumors of a Pre death for Verizon has been much exaggerated. Today two more reputable analysts have said that the Pre, or even better, an updated Pre is definitely headed for Verizon in Q1 2010. I have breathed a huge sigh of relief. I do hope we see the Pixi as well.
