We don’t suppose that Howard Stern has much of an influence when it comes to which smartphone you buy, but there was quite a bit of noise last week when people thought that he might pick the Palm Pre, after Palm made one available him. Well, it turns out that H. Stern went for a Blackberry Bold instead reportedly because the Pre could not connect to Lotus Notes. Howard Stern praised how cool the Bold was on his radio show. He added that if the Palm Pre doesn’t sell, it might be over for Palm. This is clearly not the buzz that Palm hoped for, but I guess that it’s a risk that they had to take. H. Stern is a long-time Palm fan.
