Palm Pre to be exclusively sold by O2 in the UK

The mighty Palm Pre will be announced in the UK next week, as previously reported. And, surprisingly or not, it will be sold exclusively through O2, the carrier that reportedly managed to get exclusivity on the smartphone for several other markets.

According to The Guardian, O2 fought for the GSM Pre with Orange, and eventually won – it probably promised Palm a higher revenue share. Or something like that.

For the moment, it’s not clear yet what price O2 will ask for the Pre, but the carrier probably wants to offer it even for free, on select and expensive plans.

O2 is also the exclusive iPhone 3G S carrier for the UK, and the launch of Palm Pre should consolidate its position as the leading British mobile operator.
