Palm lauded the Pre initially as an iPhone killer, but the design is not something that focuses on media-rich viewing like Apple's phone–it resembles a transforming BackBerry. The keys were always horrible to use–so it cannot match the 'text' crowd with other phones. And finally, the use of a phone carrier rated so low as to be barely existent.

Palm will–in my opinion–be purchased, its' assets sold and its' intellectual properties re-branded by whomever buys it. It's a sad, sad end to an otherwise enterprising company. Given that their management has been trying to keep the losses in perspective instead of making a final push to reach consumers is the final death knell. Their management knows Palm is dead, it's merely circling the drain.

Okay, the USA is 330m people but here in Australia we have another healthy 30m market. And is the Pre on sale here? Hardly anyone has heard of it. If I offered a million dollars (AUS) I wouldn't be able to get one that worked on our (very modern) networks.
And in how many other countries does the Pre suffer the same fate?
Yes, the USofA is the biggest, but there's something else out there; it's called The Rest of The World.
If I were the chairman I'd be taking a baseball bat to Rubenstein. Blinkered CEO vision is what's killing free enterprise in America. You've had it too long and run by too many fat-cats for too long. Look about.
