Palm Pre Release Date Announced



The geek world has been anxiously awaiting the announcement from Sprint on when the new Palm Pre would be available. Well on Tuesday of this week, Sprint finally let the world know that on June 6th, the highly awaited device will be available for purchase.

Although many (myself included) had given up on Palm, this new phone with its web OS makes a very interesting play in the mobile phone market. I have a couple of friends who are salivating to get their geeky paws on one the day it can be purchased. I'm pretty sure they'll be standing in line somewhere.

The phone will be sold at Sprint stores, online, RadioShack, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy. June 6th is a Saturday so I'm sure they are expecting brisk sales.

While I'm a Sprint customer, I've been using the Samsung Instinct since its release last June and have been very happy with it. While it is not an iPHone, it has kept me happy. I'm anxious to see what the new owners say about the Pre. I'm anticipating good things.
