Palm Pré to arrive next month?

Yes, Tweets Logicom CEO

Business security measures using SSL

The much-hyped Palm Pré could be launched next month, according to Tweets posted by the head of one firm thought to be testing the would-be iPhone killer.

Jim Van, CEO of Logicom, reportedly updated his Twitter feed last week to say that the phone’s release date will be 30 April.

It’s worth taking the news with a pinch of salt. General access to Van’s Twitter page has since been blocked, so there's no way of verifying what he's claimed to have said.

Nonetheless, various online news sources that claimed to have seen the page before it was blocked have said that Van’s Twitter page was also updated with several other Pré-related posts.

These supposedly included a message that Pré works well with Facebook and that mixed use – by which we assume means use of video, email and web browsing as well as calls – still results in an eight-hour battery life.

Van's launch date Tweet probably only refers to the phone's US availability with operator Sprint. But it's already been rumoured that O2 has secured exclusive rights to the phone in Blighty. ®
