Palm on Sprint Pre 2: Ask Sprint

  Ask Sprint

Not unsurprisingly, there's a bit of consternation among the webOS faithful that the Palm Pre 2 has been announced for SFR, Verizon, and a Canadian Carrier but not for Sprint - still home to the largest contingent of webOS users and also home to the oldest set of webOS devices on the market.

Well Palm has a message for you: Go ask Sprint. That's the gist of their reply on their Facebook page:

Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate you taking the time to write! Carriers in the United States determine which phones they offer their subscribers. If you'd like Sprint to carry a new Palm webOS phone, let them know. They have a contact page on their corporate website, and a fan page here on Facebook:

That's a bit more forceful than the standard "We don't comment on future devices" that we typically see from phone companies, seems to us. We don't want to say that Sprint isn't as pleased with Palm as they could be - but looking at their aging webOS lineup and Palm's call for Sprint customers to hit up their feedback form has us thinking in that direction.
