Possible release dates for Sprint’s Palm Pre: May 17 and June 29

We know that Sprint employees have begun the Palm Pre training, obviously in order to be ready for the smartphone’s much-anticipated release. 

Now we’re hearing the US carrier enforced a vacation freeze during May for its employees, and, according to Phone News, it has scheduled two launch dates for the new handset.

The first one is May 17 – the Palm Pre will be released that day if Sprint receives enough retail units until early May.

In case the received units are “deemed too low to begin initial sales in May”, Sprint will push the Pre release to June 29.

So it looks like it all depends on Palm and whether or not it can supply enough Pre smartphones in time. Hopefully, the Sunnyvale company will be able to do that.

    You guys need to hurry and release this phone, i cant wait to own it. I've been a sprint customer for 5 years and i recommend every phone I buy to friends as well as family. The new Simply Everything plan will be perfect for this phone. As a customer whose not a fan of touch screen phones, i must say i am excited to own the palm pre for the simple fact that not only is it touch screen but it has a QWERTY pad. Unlike the IPhone, it makes texting easier.
