Palm stock plunges 13%, likely to have one last chance at comeback

Sprint Palm Pre

Palm is in deep crap. This is hard for me to say, because I am a loyal @Palm customer and have been so from when they had the very first Pilot model and were part of 3M. However, there is no denying now, that the Crazy Drug Lady ad campaign did not work, along with a botched launch with way to large of expectations (on all sides), plus very serious quality control problems with the Pre (Pixi is rock solid comparatively speaking) that still have not been addressed. And you know what? I like my Pre, but I sure as hell don’t love it. The most basic of tasks is infuriatingly frustrating due to lag in the phone application and please do not even get me started on camera lag or lack of real applications or games. Big le sigh, starting now!

The continued success of RIM and Apple seems to indicate that smartphone sales are immune to the current global economic climate, and that Palm’s continued comparative floundering at every possible turn is the exception, not the norm.
