Palm Pre 2 Not Wanted by UK Operators

As you may be aware the latest smartphone out of the joint HP and Palm camp, the Palm Pre 2 is to be sold in the United Kingdom as a SIM free device carrying a price tag of some 399 quid; however if you want the Palm Pre 2 don’t think for one minute you can walk into a phone shop to get it.

According to an article over on Pocket-lint, they have talked to all the major operators in the UK and asked if they will be stocking the Palm Pre 2 and the reply from all was basically a straightforward no.

Orange UK said…“We have no plans to stock it at the moment.” 3 UK commented…“No, there are no plans to range the Palm Pre 2 at this time.”

Vodafone UK replied…“We don’t plan to feature the device in the UK range.” While O2 UK answered…“The Palm Pre Two will not be available on O2. We offer a range of the best handsets through our product portfolio and regularly review this to ensure it continues to meet the demands of our customers.”

So basically if you are looking to snag the HP webOS 2.0 packing Palm Pre 2 on contract you are; well how we can put it…right out of luck. Anyone looking to pick up the Palm Pre 2 when it hits UK shores?
