O2 coy on Pre rumours
UK operator says ‘no comment’ to an Observer report identifying it as the exclusive provider of the Palm device. Jon Wilcox reports.
The Observer has reported that O2 has signed an exclusive deal to become the UK operator of Palm’s upcoming Pre Smartphone. The report’s publication comes just weeks after Sprint was confirmed as the US carrier for the highly-anticipated device, which debuted at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
The Pre is Palm’s attempt to launch into the Smartphone sector, which is dominated by RIM’s BlackBerry range and Apple’s iPhone.
