Palm Clarify and Correct McNamee interview
Well, well, looks like Mr. McNamee may have over-stepped the mark with his boastful attitude towards just how well the Palm Pre is going to do.
It would appear that the very company McNamee was talking up, the company in which McNamee’s firm Elevation Partners own a large chunk of, has kind of slapped his claims down.
Palm has submitted a document to SEC that includes 10 points of clarification and corrections on Roger McNamee’s interview where he stated the Palm Pre would snatch customers from Apple.
The bit I like the best is this… “8. The statement in the second paragraph of the article that “not one” person who bought an Apple, Inc. iPhone on the first shipment date “will still be using an iPhone a month” after the two-year anniversary of that day is an exaggerated prediction of consumer behaviour pattern and is withdrawn.”
Got to love it when someone oversteps the mark and gets a firm wrist slap in return, maybe next time Mr. McNamee may not be such a prophet. Foot in Mouth springs to mind.
