A lot of people are waiting for Palm to release their new smartphone, the Palm Pre, with carriers/operators other than US-based Sprint. While there were rumours of a second webOS-based device, the Palm EOS for GSM networks, it turns out that Palm is sticking exclusively with the Palm Pre for a little while longer.
We know that Verizon is keen to offer the Palm Pre. The rest of the world is waiting for a GSM version of the Pre … it looks like we have to wait for a few more months.
Palm has announced that the Palm Pre will be available in Europe “in time for the holidays”. No, not the summer holidays, unfortunately.
International mobile giant Telefonica is the European launch partner for the Palm Pre. You will be able to get the Palm Pre in UK, Ireland and Germany on Telefónica’s O2 network, and in Spain on Telefónica’s Movistar network.
As for the rest of the world, we wait.
