Verizon Wireless reported to have 400,000 Palm handsets ordered
Earlier reports have hinted to over 600,000 Palm units being amassed and ready to ship to Big Red – that figure was down from the original 800,000 due to units not meeting Verizon’s equipment verification process. In any case, now it looks like a tipster has informed BGR that both the Palm Pre and Pixi have begun surfacing in Verizon’s inventory systems. Additionally, the same source has been heard saying that Verizon ordered roughly 200,000 units a piece for both the Pre and Pixi units – a grand total of 400,000 awaiting to be shipped out. It’s really unclear as to how or why this figure is down heavily from the speculated original 800,000. We’d surmise that maybe Verizon is taking the conservative approach on their bid on selling enough Palm units. If it does well, we’re sure that Big Red will continue to order units as the demand for them increases.

They'll have a better chance on VZW that's for sure. Whether they actually do better will be interesting to see.

Wait, those are already propped open with apple computers. Do they need a little bit of extra weight?

Get lost iPhone Verizon customers don't need you any more. Android phones are better than iPhone in some way if not 100%.

Wait until it's actually on the network before you start assuming, because you're gonna be sadly mistaken.
