Verizon Palm Pre January

Verizon's edition of the Palm Pre is slated to launch almost immediately after Sprint's exclusivity period ends, a leak would suggest. In referring to a person "familiar with the situation," the Wall Street Journal understands that the Pre will ship through Verizon in January. Sprint has maintained that its exclusive is longer than six months but, if true, would only have the Pre to itself for one month more before allowing other US carriers to sell it.

Expansion to other networks is expected to hurt Sprint but would also be crucial for Palm, which needs support from other networks to expand its dwindling smartphone sales. In the interim, the company is poised to expand its sales with the Eos on at least AT&T as well as Sprint and is similarly due to bring the Pre to European carriers like O2 before the end of the year.
