Well, I've gotten confirmation of the rumours that I didn't want to hear, from Palm themselves.
I had spent a part of last week collecting names and info of people within Palm, and sent off a few e-mails.
I got a response to the one I sent to Jon from what seems like an assistant, or a proxy, who said (quoted with permission):
"It is therefore not a rumor that Palm has significantly reduced its presence in the region to one of operational support to our existing customers requiring our in-warranty services and technical support for our sold products."
"I assure you Jason that our products will come to this region one day but it won’t be that soon."
I have to say, I agree with the logic here, and don't want Palm to completely go under either... still, a sad day.
I guess it's import time.
