Palm Pre set for European launch

By on July 7, 2009, 2:28 PM
Following a successful launch in the U.S. early June, Palm has announced its plans to take the Pre smartphone overseas. Unfortunately, launch timing was only narrowed down to “in time for the holidays,” but the company did reveal that the U.K., Ireland, and Germany will have access to the device exclusively on O2 while Spain's Palm Pre will be offered through Movistar – both subsidiaries of Telefónica.

Palm also doesn't provide any prices and chose not to list the radio frequencies for the HSDPA/UMTS with EDGE/GSM version of the Pre. Instead, its press release lists the phone’s known hardware specs and touts some of its most notable features, such as true multitasking support and a gesture-controlled touch interface part of the much-praised webOS operating system. The company also reminded Canadians that the Palm Pre is scheduled to debut there with Bell Mobility in the second half of 2009.

Let us hope that Palm has corrected the MANY problems with this device that have made it such a problem for us users here.

This is my fifth Palm, and each step up turns out to be another step down... if I can ever get them to take this one back. Potential was superb. But it has turned out to be closer to Junk.
