Some mighty big ifs.
"cheap" - It seems Palm wanted to price it higher than $199. Now rumors are saying that the lowest it will be is $199.
"on various carriers" - already know it's only on Sprint until the end of the year.
Ahhhhh 45 million phones sold. Google it. And fir the first ten that paid $700 or more, they will care less about early termination fees heck, I waited fir 3g, paid $199 and will cancel if the palm is better. Second the HTC series,cluncky but what work bought me and is replacing by months end, is also on Sprint and retails for $700. So a good exchange phone with word will be goobled up by business, sort of like what IT predicts will happen with windows 7 since a majority of business are still on windows XP.
And since when has Apple cared what we want????? All mobile chips on every device except mac pro and no Intel cheaper awesome I7 series machine. Yeah, Apple really cares. They have been so busy with iPhone they care less about pro users (yeah final cut may come out) but Apple used to sell mid range priced machines Mac Pros, now they cost more and barley beat older ten machines and 30% higher than first pros and G5s. Again, apple doesn't care. They are only turning up the heat on the iPhone due to pre- this is what it will be announced today but not ship until June I bet. Around the same time as the Palm Pre.
Again, this is all good for Apple users except machine pricing.
