Verizon Wireless saying yes again to the Palm Pre - the saga continues
Yes, no, or maybe? Is anyone going to make up their mind as to whether or not Big Red will be setting their eyes, and hopefully their hands, on Palm's flagship WebOS powered Pre? Recent news about Verizon saying “no” to the Palm Pre might have put down some of Big Red's subscribers – especially when Verizon has partnered with Palm in the past. Fortunately, BGR is reporting that they've confirmed   that the news about Big Red passing off the Pre is 100 percent false. Although their source is not mentioned, at least those hopeful Verizon customers can still dream about getting the Pre some time in the near future. In the mean time though, let's hope that talks between the two companies continue to allow one of the great phones this year be made available.

I GUESS THATS WHY ITS BETTER TO WAIT UNTIL THE CARRIER OR THE MANUFACTURER MAKES A STATEMENT ABOUT WHATEVER NEGOTIATIONS WERE MADE OR GOING TO BE MADE. I PERSONALY DONT THINK THE PRE IS GOING TO VERIZON BUT I DO THINK THAT A MODEL LIKE THE PIXI WILL BE. -OFF THE SUBJECT BUT JONES VS HOPKINS REMATCH 2010 CANT WAIT.

You're right mate, PhoneArena should stop posting not yet confirmed reports to the public creating a major flame war.

I mean...I agree and I disagree with reporting it in general. As a former journalist, it bothers me when sites and blogs report on rumor as if it is fact. Folks who read reports based on rumor are going to be grossly misinformed and will spread those rumors like crazy. However, PhoneArena isn't really pushing the content, but instead passing the rumor off itself for people to judge themselves. Thing is though, isn't this why we come to PhoneArena? Phone Scoop will always post official news of items going on in the cellular industry. PhoneArena, however, goes beyond that and delves into the speculative realm of the news. That's why I go to both sites. I've seen where a lot of info that was speculative on PhoneArena went on to Phone Scoop as official word. So yeah...

That's exactly right Jeff, I mean, it's not like PhoneArena is the only site that posts rumors. That's what these sites do, they get traffic by being the first to post a certain rumor or story. You have to learn to just take it at face value, if they say that "a source tells us," chances are it's just a rumor. I like how PhoneArena puts out rumors, because it's interesting to see all the different stories coming out. Don't take it as a truth if there's no evidence that it is, just take it as a rumor. All the major media outlets, ESPN, CNN, Reuters, everyone puts out rumors at one point or another, because that's the pressure of journalism. If you don't get the ratings, you get taken out, haven't you seen Bruce Almighty?

I thought Verizon not carrying this phone would've been stoopid anyway

The only saga is the yellow journalism taking place on this site.
