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.
