At this time last year, the Pre was one of the most talked-about products in the industry. It was the phone that would save Palm. Unfortunately, things haven't gone very well since. The Pre's sales have been tepid for such a hyped product, and Palm's stock has continued to drop. Now Palm has released their third quarter expectations and...it isn't good.

They've officially notified their stockholders that they expect their 2010 revenues to be well below the $1.6 to $1.8 billion expected.
For the Q3 2010 quarter Palm sees their revenue will be somewhere between $285 million and $310 million.

At this point, I don't think anyone would be surprised to see Palm sold, but who would buy them? I still think Palm webOS is a great mobile OS. It is Linux based and offers a state-of-the-art interface. The major problem I see is that Palm has no eco-system like Apple and Microsoft have. The back and forth on the iTunes interface just highlights this issue even more.

The company will provide more detail on its financial results during Palm's third-quarter financial results conference call currently scheduled for Thursday, March 18.
