Sprint getting ready to launch the Palm Pre?

Starting next week, the 12th to be exact, Sprint and Palm are inviting press folk to a series of webcasts to showcase the Palm Pre. This may or may not be an indication that the Pre is getting closer to a launch date, but we wonder if they’ll show us anything new. I mean, if it’s close to launching, why even bother?

Fared Adib, Vice President, Device Operations & Logistics for Sprint, and Matt Crowley, Product Line Manager at Palm, will be our ‘hosts’ for the webcasts, so we’ll have to wait and see, but they promise to show us the three key differentiators that Sprint and Palm can offer with the Pre. In other words, they’ll be pitching us hard on Palm Synergy, which is unique and shows lots of promise. Just thought you should know.
