Are we ready to declare the Palm Pre dead in the UK & Ireland?

I’ve been reading and participating in the discussion that followed our post on Friday (“Palm Pre has apparently sold just 220 units in Ireland“) and i was surprised not to have heard from the Palm Pre fans.

Amongst the 250,000 strong audience there are fans, defenders (and often product managers!) of all manner of devices and platforms. I fully expected someone, somewhere, to jump in with some kind of defence.

Is there anyone in the UK or Ireland — or Europe, for that matter — enjoying their Palm Pre?

Or better still, does anyone know of somebody who’s actually bought one? If so please do post below and tell us about it.

My overriding memory of the Pre is being told not to touch it last year at Mobile World Congress. Kind of difficult to evaluate a device when you can — literally — only look at it.

What do you think? Is Palm dead to you?
