UK Palm Pré carrier confirmed

Well, it's not Vodafone...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Blighty’s exclusive Palm Pré carrier has finally been revealed. And the winner is, unsurprisingly, O2.

The smartphone will be “launched in Europe in time for the Winter holidays”, said O2’s parent company, Telefónica, which has also secured exclusive rights to sell the Pré in Spain, Ireland and Germany.

O2 hasn’t said how much the Pré and associated monthly contracts will cost UK punters. It’s not even known if the smartphone will be available on a pay-as-you-go basis.

But if O2’s iPhone 3GS pricing structure is anything to go by, then it’s reasonable to assume that the Pré could be very, very expensive. ®
