PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, that's a bit of a surprise. Palm posted its quarterly financial results today, and as it turns out, the company is actually doing better than expected. Losses were lower than expected, sales were higher than expected, so from whatever way you look at it, the future is looking a little brighter. The quarter ended May 31, so sales of the Pre are not part of this one yet.

Uh, no it doesn't.

Unanimity may be assumed explicitly after a unanimous vote or implicitly by a lack of objections.

Palm has a lot of mediocre reviews as well, as the thread starter said.

Unanimous? Not at all.

Like which?

I've read endless amounts of Pre reviews, and they all concluded that the Pre is a wonderful device, but that both the hardware and software have issues. The general conclusion is that the device is good, but with its flaws.

That means that the reviews were unanimously positive.

You are simply misunderstanding me here. Saying "reviews were unanimously positive" does NOT mean "every review was unanimously positive". In the first statement, the "unanimous" applies to the whole batch of reviews.

Come on mate; at worse his use of the word unanimous was borderline hyperbole if one were to suffer from anal retention. Most of the reviews I have seen online have either been positive or praising. He never said that the product was flawless because all the reviews listed negatives. The fact remains that the reviews, even when the negatives were taken into account, found that the Palm Pre is an excellent device.
