Walt Mossberg has given the Pre a preliminary overview and likes it so
far....but it's prelim.

The Pre is a linux kernel and supposedly better than iphone...but then,
normal people aren't being allowed to see it.

It will be available on Spring only starting June'ish until who knows. This
is the 2nd time Verizon has dropped the ball on Palm products for their
clients which really sucks.

Pricing hasn't been announced yet.

Have they actualy shown you a Palm Pre? From what I've read, it sounds
pretty good. Hope Verizon gets it soon.

It is starting exclusive to Sprint in the states. I hear there is a GSM
version for foreign markets, but I haven't heard any rumors about how long
Sprint's exclusive deal lasts. But from what I hear, I don't even know if
Sprint can ship the phone ahead of June. :(

And I have not heard any firm rumors on pricing either. Too early to tell
if this will have significant market impact.
