Palm Pre Coming To The European Markets This September

According to Apcom/I.R.I.S., the official distributors of Apple products in Romania, cited by Ziarul Financiar, the Palm Pre should come in the country at about the same price as in the US. This report comes from ZF.ro and it quotes Zsolt Kadar, the director of marketing for Apcom/I.R.I.S., "The launch depends on demand and in the West, but the device should be available in Eastern Europe, including Romania, at the end of September, at prices similar to those outside ($550 without subscription red.)." The Palm Pre may be offered on the local market in Romania through wireless carriers as well, though no exact details have been made public.

Representatives from Apcom / IRIS, which distributed PDA's and smartphones in 2001 (originally the company name was Handspring, and subsequently acquired by Palm in 2003), say that will consider partnerships with local telecom operators. So be on the lookout in your local European markets in the Q4 of this year.

"The Pre has been also reported to head to O2 in the UK, while earlier reports pointed towards Telefonica as the carrier that would introduce the phone.."
O2 = part of Telefonica group (AFAIK)
