Are Sprint running out of time with the Palm Pre?
With Sprint announcing fair grim 1st quarter financial results, it is becoming more evident just how important the success of the Palm Pre is.
A techblog article says, the rumour is a limited number of Palm Pre smartphone will be released with Best Buy on June 7th, a fairly bad day to launch the Palm Pre as on June the 8th Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference begins and it is expected this is where Apple will unveil the next iPhone.
When that Apple announcement comes all eyes of the mobile arena will be watching which will detracted publicity from the Palm Pre, and even worse would be if Apple launched the new iPhone a couple of weeks later.
Basically, Palm and Sprint may be leaving it too late to garner the interest they need to make the Palm Pre a success, if they want that they should get the Pre into the public’s hands a lot sooner.
