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.”
