Palm Pre - it's lunch time! Oh, we mean launch!
Okay, we know you must be getting sick of these, but guess what – we might have a possible release date for the ubiquitous Palm Pre here! This time, BGR has shared what an anonymous tipster (thank God, the world is full of these) sent them an internal Palm memo showing a list of meetings and events and ending with the mysterious “LAUNCH LUNCH!”, due on June 5, 12PM. We can’t be sure if this is the real release date we’ve been waiting for, but either way, the image is definitely worth looking at. Don’t forget you are always welcome to tell us what you think and remember “The KEY to the PRE is Customer Satisfaction!”… Oh, we do hope it is!

The continuous delay could be because of bugs but I think it I'd because of the iPhone. Isn't Apple having a keynote sometime between June 4-6? During that keynote they will announce the launch of the new iPhone supposedly. I don't think Palm just coincidentally decided to release the phone on June 5th for nothing. Releasing the pre at the same time should take away sales from the iPhone....theoretically

I think the Godfather has a point, whats the point in spending so much money upping a device that onlye maybe 1 million people actually want, think about it, touch screen blackberry fans ARE obsorbed in the storm thats a 30 million cm market, where they fall short the rest are 30 million iPhoners...there is little market for palm since there history falls short long with sprint, a failing network investing in a failing phone manufacturer w/ failing technology isnt going to last...Godfather is statistacally correct, Sprint can't afford this phone...

I agree. I do however understand this tactic. They dont want to put out a release date and not have enough on hand to fill all the orders. (although understocking is Nintendo's favorite tactic, and that seems to work for them)

I'm gonna be really pissed if Sprint and Palm try some understocking BS, which is why I plan to order two of them through The website will normally allow you to order a few day before the launch so that you receive them the same day they launch but don't have to deal with the stores and the chance of them being out of stock.
