More June Palm Pré launch evidence emerges

Still no official word, though

Evidence is mounting that Palm will launch its Pré smartphone next month.

The New York Times yesterday quoted “people briefed on the company’s plans” as stating that Palm will officially launch the Pré during the first week of June.

Whether the date refers to a worldwide or purely North American launch isn’t specified.

The claim follows rumours that Palm is readying itself for an early June unveiling.

For example, a recent document, allegedly leaked from Sprint, hinted that the carrier - Palm's official Pré launch partner – is also gearing up for an early June launch.

Palm’s only official word on the Pré’s launch so far is that the device will be available during the second half of 2009. ®
