For those of you who didn’t pay attention in history class, D-Day was June 6th, 1944. Sprint announced today that Palm Pre will be available on June 6th. Palm Pre will be available nationwide in Sprint stores, as well as at Best Buy, Radio Shack, and some Wal-Mart stores. The phone will sell for $199.99 after rebate and service agreement.
In some ways, the future of Sprint hinges on the success of the Pre launch. Sprint has been struggling in the recent years and needs to change its image… fast. I remember reading somewhere that Palm, which has also been struggling, was taking its time with the launch of Pre. Palm cannot afford to launched its phone prematurely like RIM did with its Blackberry. I need a new phone so I’ll have to go check out the Pre.
