We know that Sprint should release the Palm Pre in the US sometime during June (hopefully not later); but what about the other parts of the world?
Well, in Australia, for example, the mighty Pre might land in August, offered by Telstra – hence we’re talking about the handset’s GSM version.
A Telstra insider has also said that the mobile operator has three-month exclusivity on the smartphone, but this is not yet confirmed.
Like in the US, initial Palm Pre stocks might be low in Australia, because of ”Telstra’s marketing machine.”
Reportedly, Palm wants to sell the Pre to Telstra for 400 AUD ($296) per unit, while the carrier will offer it for 299 AUD ($222) with a data plan, or for 899 AUD ($667) free of contract. These prices are probably not too different from the ones Sprint will offer the smartphone for.
