Verizon Will Get Pre This Year
Sprint's exclusive on the eagerly awaited new Palm Pre smart phone will lost for a much shorter time than originally believed. According to a Reuters report Thursday, the Pre will become available on Verizon Wireless around six months after it debuts on Sprint in early June.
Verizon Wireless top executive Lowell McAdam confirmed the news on a webcast, Reuters said. McAdam also said that the sequel to the BlackBerry Storm will appear on Verizon around the same time as the Pre, and that Verizon would also soon begin carrying phones using Google's Android operating system.
The news caused Sprint's stock to drop, but Palm's to rise.
