Palm Pre, $200 AR, Yours on June 6th, 2009

For those of your thirsty for the new Palm Web OS, you will only have to salavate for 18 more days as Palm Pre will be released on Saturaday June 6th, 2009. Bring $300 to your local Best Buy, Walmart, RadioShack or obviously, Sprint Store and expect a $100 rebate when you signup with their qualified data plans.

Some notes to self:
* $200 AR price is very competitive to the best of breed (8GB iPhone 3G, BlackBerry Storm, etc.)
* Launching 2 days prior to Apple's WWDC conference, where a potential new iPhone may be out
* Palm and Sprint must have worked like crazy to make the June deadline but I think it would have been more effective if they could have launched this in April/May
* Personally, I'd hold out two more days to see what Apple has up in their sleeves, last thing I need is because I couldn't hold out 48 hours and committed to an inferior smartphone
