Palm: yeah, so we lost $100m – who cares, here comes the Pre!

Palm’s third quarter earnings have been reported, and they’re as bad as anyone might have expected. But with the Pre just around the corner and everything on track, according to CEO Ed Collligan, nobody should be worrying about that. It’s a fair assessment, really: it’s like a boxing match where you know your fighter’s got a win in him. He’s battered and bloodied from being beaten and bullied, but suddenly his opponent is flat-footed, caught off guard, and your guy is winding up for what could be a knockout punch.

Would you cut your losses and leave the arena? Hell no! I can’t wait to try the Pre, and I hope it brings Palm all the success they deserve. So buck up, Palm-lovers, and see if they can’t land that haymaker.
