The long-awaited launch announcement from Palm concerning the Pre release has been received and June 6 is the day. The Palm Pre will be available from Sprint, Best Buy, RadioShack and select Wal-Mart stores for $199.99 (after $100 rebate) and will require a 2-year Everything Data ($69 – $99) or Business Essentials plan.
The simultaneous launch at Sprint and the other major retailers is a good thing for Palm and Sprint. This launch is just before the expected announcement by Apple of the next version iPhone.
The Touchstone charging dock will be available June 6 and will cost you $69.99. This charger was most impressive when we saw it earlier this year and is a likely purchase for most Pre buyers.
