back to article Mole talks up Palm Pré... 2

Everyone knows salt’s bad for you in large amounts, but you’ll need a fair sized dose if you’re to swallow the latest Palm Pré rumour. But it’s Register Hardware’s duty to report that a second Pré smartphone’s supposedly in the works. Yes, we know what you’re thinking: 'But the first one’s not even out yet.' But according to …

    No point buying the first one then

    Duh?

    In other words, don't buy the Pre, wait for the second version.

    Which will be released only once they have sold out of the first version...

    That was my first thought.

    My second was; is this an iMole?

    seems more than a little unlikely to me. could be more of a Pré light/mini whatever.

    Manufacturer in...

    ...'has product development pipeline' shock.

    And the 'story' consists of a report of a rumour on another website anyway.

    Am I surprised ratings were disabled on this article?

    Ha ha ha

    They either really stupid or the first one is riddled with bugs.

    Whatever, looks like it'll be something to avoid for a while.

    different markets?

    possibly palm are aiming at different market segments with each ... seem to already do this with one model aimed more at business users and another smaller/cheaper aimed at consumers.

    This

    doesn't encourage me to buy the first one.

    I am glad it doesn't have a new wallet-snaffling consultant porking name though.

    Roll on the HTC Touch HD 2, I say

    Sounds like someone is trying to Osbourne 2 palm. It could be enough to kille em if it works. Is palm working on a new model? Of course. Everyone is always working on a new model. Microsoft is already working on the successor of windows 7. Anything scheduled for 2009 though is undoubtedly software.

    Already read about this

    I have seen more than one article from Palm that they are doing different versions of the Pre at different price points.

    Makes sense to me.

    There are some articles on Forbes if you do a search for Palm Pre.

    Either way it would be nice if they actually started selling them and I can see if I can dump my horrible windows mobile HTC Touch HD, pretty to look at but so slow.

    Meh

    Palm should just fold up shop and give the money back to the shareholders--oh, wait, there's nothing left to fold up, and there are hardly any shareholders any more. Sad, really, but this is a company which has been imploding for a decade.

    And I still actually _like_ using my Zire! Can't wait for Palm to go away, though, just can't wait.

    Paris, because even she could put out a better handset than Palm...
