Sprint's Palm Pre In Hands of "Store Advocates"

Looks like Palm Pre has arrived at your local Sprint stores "Store Advocates" hands. As reported, one unit is in hands at each Sprint store for training purposes. The one-per-store units are for the store employee which is the designated expert on the Palm Pre. We expect to see several more shots of the Palm Pre to come here in the future.

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

Rumors and speculations of a mid-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, certainly implies 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 a 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 in person at CTIA, the demo devices 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?
