Verizon conducts training centered on the Palm and webOS?
Currently, Sprint is the only US carrier that offers Palm´s webOS-based handsets the Pre and Pixi. A rumor that appeared at the beginning of this fall had it there was a pretty good chance that Verizon would release the Palm Pre in 2010. Yesterday, FCC approved the CDMA version of the Palm Pixi equipped with Wi-Fi, the Palm 121 EWW that would allegedly roll out through Big Red. Until now, there wasn´t any proof about the intentions of the carrier and everything that we knew was, more or less, based on rumors. Fortunately, one of our trusted tipsters has just sent us a document that makes us hope the rumors about Verizon´s webOS range might be true indeed. According to the information, Verizon has embarked on a 20-minute long training to re-introduce Palm and webOS to its personnel that will be ongoing until January 4, 2010. Fingers crossed the information gets confirmed soon.  

Thanks, striker!

And who would you be blaming the six month wait on?? Maybe you haven't heard of the exclusivity contract Palm has with Sprint? Think before you post please.

$99 dollars is too expensive?? For WebOs it's a pretty flipping sweet deal, the only caveat the lack of WiFi which with VZW isn't really a big deal.

I feel that Palm has a good chance of making a come back if Verizon does what it did with Motorola. Originally Sprint, would be Palm savior but being the third largest carrier and with "poor" promotion, beautiful webos hasn't live up to it's hype! Don't mess it up Verizon, make no mistake webos will bring you thousands, and thousands of new customers...

I think that Palm shot itself in the foot when they took forever to open up their app store. Everyone was hyped on Pre, including myself, but the lackluster amount of apps just turned me away. They took too long to open their doors and now all the developers have flocked to Android.

Web OS has 800 apps now with there being speculation of 1K by the end of the year because of fast they are coming in. I'm hoping something hot comes at the CES

I'm more attracted to the Pixi than the Pre for some odd reason, I can't quite put my finger on it.
