Palm Pre available June 6, says Sprint
- 20 May, 2009 01:11
Following in the footsteps of the Apple iPhone and the BlackBerry Storm, the Palm Pre will be sold for $200 provided customers sign a two-year service agreement with Sprint and mail in a $100 rebate.
As Palm's first entry into the smartphone market, the Pre is the latest device trying to knock the iPhone off its perch, following in the footsteps of the Samsung Instinct, the BlackBerry Storm and the HTC G1. The phone's performance on the market is particularly important for Palm, as the company has been losing money and is in need of a hit.
Additionally, the webOS is layered to allow users to keep several applications open at once and to let them flip seamlessly between them.
