Every smartphone maker wants their new device to be better than the iPhone and so far, that just hasn’t happened. According to an analyst in the US the sales of the Palm Pre plunged after the iPhone 3GS was launched. I think plunging sales have more to do with Sprint inability to lure new customers to its network even though the Pre is a cool device.

Analyst Ilya Grozovsky told investors that he believes July Pre sales only totaled 100,000 units. He believes that the sales number was about half the amount sold in June.

The analyst also expects Pre sales to fall again this month and has cut Q3 sales forecasts from 400,000 Pres to 350,000. “Should sales prove to be in line with our checks," Grozovsky said, "we believe price cuts may be looming going into the holiday season in an effort to spur holiday sales of the Pré."
