    Just get the feeling Palm is going to concentrate on CDMA for NA and do nothing about the much larger global market.
    Not sure, for the US GSM market you are def. right since sprint has the 6 month window.
    But the official word from Palm is still that the WW GSM version will be release a within a couple of months of the main launch...
    Similar to what they did in the past.

    So I still have my hopes up...

    This Just In: Upgrades and Downgrades

    Several carriers plan to launch the Palm Pre, and despite the challenging macro environment we anticipate this unique product will resonate with consumers.
    Several? I only heard Telefonica and Sprint. Enlighten me please, someone?

    I don't think anybody really knows much beyond the CDMA launch through Sprint.

    Stumbled across a retailer selling Unlocked GSM Palm Pre's for AT&T - The product is listed as backordered and the description indicates "This product is expected to be in stock on Wednesday 01 July, 2009". Price you'll pay to purchase one on backorder is $579.50 from this Vendor Negri Electronics. Wonder where they came up with the Wednesday July 1st date of availability?

    Palm Nearing "Final Stages" of European Strategy
    By Dieter Bohn | Monday, Apr 27, 2009 |

    While stateside we're anxiously awaiting the Sprint Release of the Palm Pre, there's the little issue of the European release still up in the air. According to Rethink Wireless, Palm's getting close to nailing things down there as well:

    The handset maker's VP for EMEA, Paul Ghent, told Mobile Today that the company has "entered the final stages" of deciding its strategy and partners for Europe. "We're close to a decision on our strategy for EMEA and we're going through the final validation process at present," he said. "It's important we take our time over this and get everything exactly right. The key is identifying where the big opportunities lie for us."

    As we reported in January, Palm hired Ghent away from HTC to run sales for the European market. Ghent has a history of success with HTC, having helped to drive their Touch Diamond to record sales.

    Palm has long struggled in the European market, where adoption of their PalmOS offerings has been historically weak. They've done slightly better with their Windows Mobile offerings, but the webOS and the Pre looks to be their best shot at challenging Nokia in the smartphone space.

    As for carriers, all eyes are currently on Vodafone. Palm has worked closely with Vodafone before -- launching the Treo 750v on their network long before it was available anywhere else. We have had previous reports that Vodafone was in negotiations for exclusivity on the Pre and, of course, we at PreCentral.net had some eyes-in time with a GSM version of the Pre running on Vodafone's 3G HSPA network in Spain

    As Pre-followers have come to accept understand by now: pricing and release dates are of course a complete mystery. For those in the US who are not interested in switch, there are further mysteries: Whether the GSM version of the Pre will be locked down to Vodafone's network, whether it will contain US 3G bands, and whether or not it will prove to be as difficult to unlock at the iPhone has been.

    I'm not sold on the fact that there won't be an unlocked GSM Pre available in June or July. Matter of fact I'm fairly certain an Unlocked GSM Pre will be on the market somewhere in the world before August 1st. Anyone in agreement with me?

    I am waiting on a GSM Pre also. It's an easy wait for me since I have a Treo Pro. I would think that within 2 months we'll see the GSM Pre in Europe. Then probably an unlocked GSM Pre in the states in about 6 months.

    I have a GSM Treo Pro that I'm really happy with.

    I think I'll let all the early Pre adopters work all the bugs out.
    Then... Maybe.
    Just call me Berd.

    I was thinking about waiting but AT&T service is just horrible in my area. Says full bars but calls fail or never go through... It's a real pain.
  15. #155  
    I think the earliest one I saw that was compatible with AT&T was the Australian carrier sometime in August.

    No i'm not waiting because AT&T here and where I travel has been oversold and I'm tired of waiting upwards of 10 minutes for a data connection to retrieve a web page. More times than not I have to switch to edge to get anything working in Safari yet in the evenings when things slow down it works fine.

    My AT&T contract expires in September, which I believe will be enough time to list the pros/cons of owning a Pre vs. Iphone 3.0. I'm equally excited about both, and it would be nice to have a GSM-based Pre.

    Perhaps T-Mobile will carry the Pre. I believe Pre sales on AT&T will pale in comparison with the iPhone.

    Yes. Bring mine with Quad GSM and HSDPA on 850 and 2100 please.

    Although before August sounds optimistic.

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    I, too, am waiting for the Unlocked GSM, happy to get a locked one, but I don't want to switch from T-Mobile. I have a good plan there and good service.
