Comments on: Palm Gives Howard Stern Private Pre Demo
Sometime this week, Palm flew out a PR team to give celebrity US radio personality Howard Stern a private one-hour demo of the Palm Pre phone. Despite the fact that Palm's won't let journalists handle the device in a controlled environment, Palm seems eager to recruit more free publicity faced with declining revenue in advance of the Pre product launch.
ZDNet's Editor in Chief, Larry Dignan reported earlier this week on the developments:
"They're going to show me the Pre and then take it away. They're trying to build excitement for this thing. If people don't buy this I don't see how Palm keeps going," said Stern. It should be noted that Stern is getting better access than the press has recieved to date with the Pre.
