According to phonenews.com the US american carrier Sprint will be the official distributor of Palm’s new flagship “Pre”. phonenews.com is referring to internal Sprint memos that there are two possible launch dates.
If Palm can deliver enough units the launch might be on May 17th, 2009 or if not the release will be delayed until June 29th, 2009. The end of june has also been mentioned by Palm when referring to the iPhone. At the end of June, the first iPhone subscribtions will be finished and people might want to search for an alternative.
In our opinion the Pre is a very strong contender to the iPhone. Its Linux based WebOS looks also very interesting to developers and hackers. Moreover the Pre supports multi-tasking. Let’s see what the new iPhone models will feature.
