One way to spread a rumor and also stop a rumor nowadays is to Tweet about it. Which is what Palm did on Wednesday.
"Palm Pre still on track for first half of 2009," Palm tweeted, yesterday in response to a link on Twitter saying that a Palm
design employee had tipped him that the Pre would be delayed.
Rumor squelched. Let's think about it. How can a launch be delayed when a date had never been announced in the first place?
Televangelist for the Palm Pre said in an interview "You know the beautiful thing: June 29, 2009, is the two-
year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone. Not one of those
people will still be using an iPhone a month later."
This leads people to suspect that the Palm Pre will launch in late June.
The Palm Treo Pro will be released on March 15 with a two-year contract on the Sprint network and is available in Alltel markets, now. It is also available unlocked at the Palm Store online.
