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.

Sprint Insider: Pre Release date 6/7?

An admin of SprintGurus, by the name of Coal, had posted an internal document listing several Sprint handsets currently in beta stages. What's more? In Coal's own words:

"For those asking about the Pre, there are 2 release windows, one is around 6/7/09 - the other I cannot say much on."

This matches well with when the Protest Guy campaign is set to end. Let's hope everything with the Pre goes well, and they don't have to push the date even further, which would be the other release window Coal mentioned...

Palm Pre release date: May 17th the earliest

 

Engadget got their hands on an internal Sprint document suggesting that the targeted release date for the Palm Pre is no earlier than May 16th. Following Sprint's product launch trend, May 16th will most likely be Sprint Store's preparation for a May 17th launch, that is if they have enough inventory. Don't know if anyone else noticed it, the very second item from the list reads, "P100(Code name for Palm Pre) FAQs for Search/Support and Learn", happening exactly a week before launch. My guess it's a product update for Sprint employees to answer the FAPQ(P as in Pre), so they can stop answering by, "we'll get more information on that when it's close to launch", since it will be close to launch by then.

Sprint Employees now training on the Palm Pre, Pre's Launch is Near

All the rumors and speculations of a mid-April/late April/May launch of the Palm Pre doesn't appear to be too far of a stretch. Stated in an email from Sprint, "Employees can expect training to start in April as well as multiple communications to get them excited and ready to help our customers." I was wondering if the training has begun -- so I asked for a confirmation on that thought.

"I would like to inform that Sprint is in the process of providing the training for the new Palm Pre. Once it's launched, Sprint will be ready to serve their valued customers regarding the Palm Pre."

The fact that Sprint employees are already training up on the Palm Pre, pretty much implies that the release date of the Pre should be near. On top of that, early this week, Sprint began getting the word out about the Pre with their new marketing campaign. So don't be surprised when the Palm Pre launches within the coming 5 weeks or so!

Some say that after seeing Palm Pre demos at CTIA, the Pre doesn't seem to be ready, software wise. And of course many have advised Palm and Sprint to not rush the phone. So the question is, is it really ready?

The Palm Pre was officially announced about a month ago and with all the hype going around... Hmm,  I doubt anyone would read this so I'll end it there. Maybe not.
