Palm: Hey … Hello? Excuse Me … Over Here!

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? And if Palm (PALM) announces a Centro price cut on International iPhone Day, does anyone care?

The answer to the first philosophical riddle is debatable. The answer to the second?

Well, did you know that AT&T began peddling Palm Centros in its stores today with a new electric blue color and a $70 price tag? I bet AT&T (T) customers walking right by them on their way to pay for their new iPhone 3G didn’t either.

“They took the wrong day to do it,” said Charlie Wolf, a wireless analyst at Needham & Co. “It’s going to be drowned out by the hoopla around the iPhone.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
