Last week, there were rumors abound that T-Mobile would get their first Palm device since the Palm Treo 600. No doubt Palm could benefit from adding carriers and AT&T is almost certain to join the fray in the coming months. According to Forbes, Palm is not getting ready to launch a webOS device on T-Mobile.
According to Macquarie Research analyst Phil Cusick,
“Our checks indicate that Sprint hasn’t seen any pickup since the Verizon launch. We expect AT&T to launch Pre and Pixi in April or May, but with even less marketing support than Verizon, and checks indicate that recent chatter of an impending launch at T-Mobile is not correct.”
At some point, expansion of carriers will only do so much. Palm needs the buzz it had this time last year and a new device might be the only way to get that back.
