Palm Stops Palm Pre, Palm Pre Plus, Palm Pixi & Palm Pixi Plus Production? Palm Is Said to Resume Pre & Pixi Production Only in March
launch a GSM version of the Pre on May 10 and today we have more
Palm-related news for you. But this time it s not good news, folks! In
fact, if you want to buy a Palm Pre, Pre Plus, Pixi or Pixi Plus, maybe
now is the time to buy it as people say that Palm is halting all webOS
What s pretty clear so far is that Palm will completely stop Pre and
Palm Pre production and shipments. Some sources claim that Pixi and Pixi
Plus production will also be stopped while others say that Pixi Plus
production will keep going although Verizon will only get 5,000 units in
The good news is that February is the shortest month of the year and we
only have just a little over two weeks to go until March.
The question is why would Palm go ahead and do such a thing? What s
going to happen next? While we expect an official statement coming from
Palm or Foxconn, here s what we have so far on the matter:
Palm Inc. AlertPalm Orders Production Halt of Pre and Pre+ in
FebruaryFebruary 11, 2010
PALM, S, VZ, 2038 HK, 8078 TT
Sources: 3 sources Taiwan handset component supply chain (all repeats)
Key sources in the Taiwan handset supply chain said Palm Inc. has
ordered assembler Foxconn International Holdings Co. Ltd. to suspend
production of both the Pre and Pre+ in February. �The decision is very
sudden, and Foxconn was told to reduce all February Pre forecast to zero
on Wednesday and nobody knows whether shipment will resume in March, �
said a key source. The source said the CDMA2000 Pre to Sprint and the
CDMA2000 Pre+ to Verizon were affected.
Pixi Production Suspended Too?One source said Palm also told Compal
Communications Inc. to suspend shipment of the Pixi and Pixi+ in
February, while another source said that production is still going ahead
with the Pixi+ to Verizon, but actual delivery in February will amount
to less than 5,000 units.
