If the latest Internet rumor is true, Best Buy Mobile is going to be the only place – besides Sprint stores – you will be able to pick up the hot Palm Pre. It seems that the boys in blue will have an exclusive for 60 days. While this is just a rumor, it isn’t unrealalistic and might work in Sprint’s favor.
The two worked together last summer on the Samsung Instinct launch so there is a history here. Plus, when Best Buy has an exclusive, the retailer will advertise as such which will nearly double the amount of ad spots consumers will see. Both Sprint and Palm needs this phone to be hot and a Best Buy exclusive launch would do nothing but help out the fledgling wireless carrier and manufacturer. Lets classify this as a credible rumor.
