The Palm Pre Launch…. Not Exactly Drawing The Huge Crowds

The Palm Pre launched on Saturday and here’s a couple of observations from trolling the Interwebs. First is the fact that ZDNet claims that Palm may have sold as many as 50,000 of the devices this past weekend. Not exactly a trivial number, but far less than the iPhone launch a couple of years ago. Then there’s this shot of the lineup for the Palm Pre vs. the lineup for the iPhone. While not scientific, it is telling about how popular the Pre is (or isn’t when compared to the iPhone). Still, these are early days and we’ll see over the long term how this plays out.

Oh, if Apple announces a new iPhone sometime after 1PM EST at the WWDC as expected by many including yours truly, you can probably write of the Pre and Palm along with it.
