A blogger has updated his post to calm anxious Palm Pre watchers, who were getting excited at the prospect the smartphone might hit the market next month. Some even reported the phone would arrive in 10 days or so. Boy Genius Report now predicts the handset will arrive in late May or early June.
That's more in line with most of the earlier speculation. Palm has only said the phone would arrive sometime in the first half of the year.
Impressive demos at CES have generated much anticipation. But those demos were tightly controlled. The company's attitude at CES, where reps were shy to even let reporters hold the darn thing, suggested the phone had significant bugs to kill and rough edges to smooth. I think even June is optimistic.
