Sprint's Palm Pre Launch Set for June 6

Sprint will launch its highly anticipated Palm Pre phone nationwide on June 6. The Palm Pre, which is offered exclusively from Sprint in the U.S., is priced at $199.99 with a two-year service agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate. The mobile phone boasts a new webOS platform that introduces "Palm Synergy", a key feature that brings together personal and professional calendar, contacts and e-mail into one centralized view.

"Pre is truly a new phone for a new web-centric age," said Ed Colligan, Palm president and chief executive officer. "We're a mobile society, and we want our people, calendars and information to move with us. With Pre's exquisite design and the unique webOS software, running on Sprint's fast broadband network, we're changing the perception of what a wireless phone can be."
