When Palm and Bell Mobility announced the release of Palm Pre in Canada, the companies said that the smartphone would be available in the second half of 2009.
Now it looks like the Pre might be launched earlier, meaning before the end of June – so in the first half of the year.
According to Mobile Syrup, a Bell representative said that the exact release date of Palm Pre is not known yet, but it “will be released within this month for sure.”
Pricing details are also unknown, but since Sprint offers the Pre for as low as $200, Bell will probably sell it for a similar price (on contract).
Anyway, until Bell or Palm officially confirm Pre’s June release, it would probably be better if we file this in the rumor category.
