Deploying the Pre on Sprint only is going to hurt Palm. Not because Sprint is that bad, but because its only one carrier. Apple could get away with it because they're Apple and are great at creating hype for a product. Apple also didn't depend on the iphone to keep them out of bankruptcy. If Palm was smart, they would have said f-that to exclusive contracts and dumped the Pre out to all 4 carriers. Limiting it to the #3 carrier is stupid.
