Palm Pre Release on June 6th

palm_preI just got an email notice from Palm.com stating that the long awaited Palm Pre phone will be available on June 6th. From all preview reports, it seems that this “iPhone killer” device may be a big hit for Palm. It will be priced at $199.99 after the $100 mail-in rebate and qualifying 2-year service activation. Like the Apple iPhone and T-Mobile G1 (Android OS) phone, the Palm Pre is highly dependent on having an active Internet connection so you’ll definitely need a reasonable data plan to use it effectively.

I would love to get one, but I’m currently using a company provided phone (through Verizon) and as such, I don’t want to carry around two different phones. If they do turn out to be a smash hit, I may end up getting one for developing applications and just bite the bullet and use it for my daily work activities.

Update: Here’s a link to a nice comparison between the Palm Pre and the Apple iPhone.

    Better get used to carrying two phones.
    It’s not whether the Pre will be a hit or not. It’s all about whether you, me and everyone else will be players when Palm changes the game. That’s happening right now. Very often in Technology people look back and write commentary on historic events. But very rarely does anyone realize the moment as it’s happening.
    Take a moment, look around you, read the internet buzz, look at how nervous Apple is….it’s happening right now. Got that chill down your spine, hair and goosebumps on yor arm, funny feeling in your stomach.

    Yeah, better get a Pre, dude.
