Palm Pre 2 will finally be available on Verizon tomorrow
Tomorrow, February 10, will be a big day for Verizon. The iPhone 4 will finally become available in stores for those who aren’t already Verizon customers. Also, Big Red will finally release the Palm Pre 2.
No, that’s not a typo. Verizon will not be selling the just-unveiled HP Pre 3, but the Palm Pre 2, its predecessor. Why start selling the phone a day after its successor has been unveiled? Who will buy the Pre 2 considering that the Pre 3 is on its way, and the iPhone for Verizon is finally out?
Good questions, but it’s not like anyone’s going to directly answer those, at least not from Verizon or HP. So there you have it, the Pre 2 will be on Verizon a full week before it was last anticipated to. The price is unknown as of yet, but not making it very cheap would just ensure that sales will be abysmal.
Since the Pre 3 is only going to hit stores in ‘early Spring’, whatever that is, perhaps some die-hard Palm/webOS fans will find some comfort in the Pre 2 until then. We’ll see.
