I’ve got some good news for all the Verizon subscribers in the audience. After all that waiting, the Palm Pre 2 is now available for your pre-ordering pleasure. Unfortunately, I have two bits of bad news for you too.
First, Verizon is only opening you up to pre-orders for now. The actual launch date hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, though the latest rumors are pointing toward a release on February 17. I suppose that’s better than “coming soon.”
Second, the phone is already obsolete. Did you catch the news about the Palm Pre 3 yesterday with its crazy 1.4GHz processor? Why do you buy the old and tired today when the new hotness is almost in your hands?
The Palm Pre 2, the Rogers version of which I reviewed last month, isn’t all that bad a phone, but I’d much rather have a Pre 3. You can probably expect the Verizon version of that after they reveal the Pre 4.
