All Eyes on Palm Pre!
Palm Pre to Arrive 06-Jun-09 for $299 -- The Palm Pre, potentially the only serious competitor to Apple's iPhone, will be available 06-Jun-09 for $299. (Palm and Sprint are advertising the price as "starting at $199," but that price includes a $100 mail-in rebate. Buyers must pay $299 to get the phone and sign up for a two-year service plan, which must include an unlimited data option.) Sprint is the exclusive carrier in the United States, the Pre's only market at launch. Will people line up for the Pre as they did for the iPhone? Coming two days before WWDC, all eyes will be on Palm and Apple. (Posted 2009-05-19)
