GSM Palm Pre Details to be Available July 7
Well, Palm promised the British press that a July 7 on the Palm Pre is forthcoming, but word on the street is that the event will be a launch—and that we’ll finally see a GSM version of the Palm Pre go official! Other rumors making the rounds: O2 will enjoy exclusivity, and a European market launch will increase units sold for Palm (Unless, of course, the company doesn’t fix its supply problems).
I can see why: the (hopefully) inevitable debut of the Palm Pre on GSM networks will vastly increase the potential market, allowing use of the smartphone in many more countries throughout the world, in the hands so much more people. Especially since the Pre is easily jailbroken.
At the very least, we’ll finally see just how popular Palm’s last-stand play becomes. No details yet on specs (will they be similar to the CDMA version’s or even surpass it?) nor pricing in the UK. Stay tuned for updates!
