Palm Pre Could Hit Sprint in March  

Posted by: shilpz in , , , ,

Palm Pre, one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, could be available as early as mid-March on the Sprint network. Sprint could be targeting to get the Palm Pre into its warehouses by then though that's no guarantee that the device will be available in retail stores immediately.
More likely, Sprint could release the device in May giving it enough time to stock up and clear out inventory of older Palm phones, says the Boy Genius Report citing an internal document from Sprint.
Palm showed off the Pre at the Consumer Electronics Show last month to cheers from the audience. The struggling phone maker needs a hit desperately and even skeptics concede the Pre, if priced right, could be a blockbuster for Palm.
The sleek black Pre has a 3.1-inch touchscreen, a QWERTY keyboard and a powerful interface. The phone pulls together information, photos and current online status data from sites such as Facebook, Gmail and Exchange to seamlessly integrate them into the address book and contacts list.
Palm has said it wants to see the Pre on Sprint in the first half of the year. The company hasn't announced any details related to pricing for the phone.
