Palm hiring Director of Sprint Retail Sales, 'product launch activities' in the mix

Thin though the evidence may be, we'd be remiss if we didn't take a quick note of a Palm job posting pointed out to us by @TheInvsbleMan: Director of Sprint Retail Sales in Sprint's hometown of Kansas City. It's nothing special, natch, until you start digging into the duties (emphasis ours):

Serves as a point-of-escalation for issues or problems that the customer encounters during product launch activities.

...In other words: Yes, Palm is still planning 'product launch activities' and Sprint is apparently on the shortlist for said activities. We know that Palm and Sprint have a long and somewhat beautiful relationship and that a large proportion of the webOS faithful are also on the #2 CDMA carrier. In other words, we suspect there will be many who are glad to see the relationship has a future.

We're just hoping that this time around it won't be an exclusive relationship. Feel free to play the field, HP and Palm, no point in settling down this early. (ps: feel free to make this 'product launch' a simple refresh to the Palm Pre Plus for Sprint users)
