O2 inked as UK's official Pré distributor

Source reveals Christmas O2 launch

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

O2 may have secured itself as the UK’s exclusive Palm Pré distributor, it’s been revealed.

An unnamed source has told The Guardian that the network operator fought off fierce competition from the likes of Vodafone and Orange, and that the Pré will arrive here in time for Christmas.

If the information’s accurate then O2 will be overjoyed by securing its second big handset exclusive in the past few years – the other being distribution of Apple’s iPhone.

It’s a pretty safe bet that the Pré will arrive in the UK before Christmas though because, although Palm definitely won’t want to miss the winter holiday’s sales, the firm’s previously promised to launch the smartphone over here during before 2009’s out.

North American customers will still be the first to get their mitts on the Pré though, as Palm officially confirmed last week that the smartphone will be available Stateside on 6 June. ®
