Surprisingly or not, Verizon Wireless has unveiled today that it would carry the Palm Pre “in the next six months or so”.
Just like AT&T, which also said it might sell the Pre, Verizon has to wait until Sprint’s exclusivity for the smartphone ends.
Sprint will release the Palm Pre on June 6, and, most probably, its exclusivity will be over in Q4 2009 or Q1 2010.
According to Reuters, Verizon will also start selling Android phones, as well as new handsets manufactured by Motorola. Now, we already saw the Moto Calgary, which supposedly runs on Android, so this is like a confirmation that the handset will indeed come to Verizon.
Verizon has also confirmed that it would release the BlackBerry Storm 2 and the BlackBerry Tour, most probably before 2010.
All in all, if you want a Palm Pre but don’t like Sprint, you should wait until the year ends and get it from Verizon or AT&T.
