Palm Pre Shipping June 7th, 2009; Beats iPhone to the Punch

 

According to tipsters, Palm Pre's are now shipping via UPS. After speaking with my Sprint Ninja today, I was informed that the internal Shipping routing system does not indicate any orders for shipment arriving. The ninja also stated that the shipments do not show up in the system for several days from when the initial shipments have left port.

In speaking to another one of my ninjas, during our discussion he had uttered, a "June Release" which I noticed had slipped. The ninja then quickly tried to back track and told me "He would get back to me." This seems to cooberate the story with other rumors.

With that being said, the Apple World Wide Developer conference is slated at the Moscone Center (West) in San Francisco for June 8-12th, 2009.

The reported release date for the Palm Pre is June 7, 2009, a Sunday. The day that Sprint tends to release cell phones.

I am so disappointed about the lack of phone as modem. I will really hate to give that up to switch to Pre. Internet Sharing and WMWifi are constantly in use on my Touch Pro.

I really think this is among the worst release dates imaginable for the Pre, and I hope that the powers-that-be at Palm are smarter than this. Releasing an iPhone competitor the DAY BEFORE Apple's next mediafest??!? Congratulations, you have destroyed all but 24 hours of any media attention you may have otherwise earned.

No J Gravitas, they might actually draw more attention to the crowds that will be lining up for this phone. Sprint would be early to the punch in convincing the masses that this is a desirable product. That is true only if the release date is officially confirmed as the 7th
