Why not Sprint?

This phone should've been released a year ago. I have absolutely no idea why what appears to be fairly modest upgrades took two full years.

What's most puzzling is why not Sprint? If I want to develop for anything resembling new Pre hardware I need to switch to Verizon? And as old as the Pre is, the Sprint Pre is even older.

Palm Pre on Sprint did not sell very well and you can blame it on the great job Sprint marketing team does. VZW marketing > Sprint marketing team. Since VZW advertise the crap out of the phones they really want to sell, then can put up some good numbers.

I can tell you right now only about 30% of our WebOS analytics are on Verizon's network.

glinc, the majority of WebOS devices are on Sprint. Verizon's marketing for the Pre went from slightly less horrible than Sprint's to nonexistant.

Don't worry, the Pre 2 is coming to Sprint.

What the hell do you care? You'll probably be switching to Verizon along with the other sheep when they release the iPhone next year anyway. Just saying. Palm is dead. Let it go.

No, Verizon Wireless has coverage as pathetic as your reply around here. AT&T is the best provider here by a long shot and I'm sticking with them for the foreseeable future.

Verizon has pathetic coverage--sorry, I just wanted to repeat your stupidity to see if lightning struck me.
