Palm Pre 2 from Verizon on February 17th?

Looks like the Palm Pre 2 is going to be available in less than two weeks, if you believe an internal product page from a third party retailer. This would be great a couple months ago, but the first webOS 2 device seems a little late to the party.

The problem is that HP is having a Palm event on the 9th where it is expected to be highlight webOS devices like tablets and smartphones. Somebody should have checked their calendar. The Palm Pre 2 is supposed to be launch on “all channels” but I don’t think the rush of customers will be there.

With the Verizon’s iPhone dropping on the 10th and the HP event on the 9th, the Palm Pre 2 looks to be a minor blip on the radar of consumers. I guess Verizon had to eventually put the Pre 2 out there but this is awfully bad timing if the rumor is real. So if you desperately want an webOS 2 device AFTER possibly (most likely) seeing newer gadgets be unveiled by HP only days before then get the Pre 2.
