Oh, February 11th. I remember it like it was just a few weeks ago. A report came out claiming that Palm was halting production of the Pre and Pixi, and everybody panicked. Then it turned out that it was an entirely pre-planned production vacation for the sake of their Taiwanese employees who wanted to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Well, that little hiatus is now over. While the company didn’t release a press release indicating that the Palm factory lines were fired up again (and why would they?), Palm’s VP of PR Lynn Fox told CNBC, “Yes, I can confirm that manufacturing is back up and running.” They may be having a hard time selling them right now, but they Pre and Pixi aren’t going anywhere just yet.
