Palm smartphone sales low may turn to WiMax
Palm recently admitted that their sales of smartphones were lower than they had anticipated. So now there are the rumours.
The rumours are that the company may be sold or that it may in fact be beefing up its product line with a WiMax smartphone for Sprint Nextel. Obviously fans of Palm don’t want to see it sold and fingers are crossed all over hoping that the company can keep on with new smartphones and upgrades to its webOS.
The rumours around the WiMax enabled smartphone could just be wishful thinking but it would be nice if they could rustle up something as dramatic as that.
More rumours are that HTC will be making the first WiMax phone for Sprint. However it is possible that Palm could also build one partly because Sprint had the exclusive carrier deal to sell the Palm Pre. It would seem that the only way for Palm to avoid disaster is to get more smartphone devices on the market and the quicker the better. Source – pcworld.com
