    Well, you know, in this case I'm not going to call it just speculation or a rumor. As much as I dislike the mainstream press, they DO still kind of tend to have better sourcing than bloggers and such. Sometimes. At least, unless it's political. For something like this, when they say the source is "people briefed on the company's plans," I give that a little more weight than the usual.

    What I find interesting is the "first week of June" bit. I'm not sure that June 7 is in the first week, unless one means the first FULL week of June, which only STARTS on June 7. Had they said the "first week IN June," then it would be earlier than the 7th, maybe the June 5 date that's been tossed around.

    Notice that? I managed to squeeze out every last tiny bit of additional speculation from this story. My day is now complete.

    I'm sure they just meant the first 7 days in June.

    I would give a NYT story some credibility. Its not a like a Tech writer of theirs would have a source deep within Palm, Sprint or whatnot

    I wonder if there will be an ad during 24 tonight? Sprint is one of its biggest sponsors, tonight is the finale, and it seems that it would be timed well to go with any potential big announcements tomorrow.

    Besides that, it's like one of the last shows that still has new episodes left. I wouldn't suggest watching just to see if there's a Pre ad, but I'll be watching it anyway, so I'll let you know if there is.

    almost everything seems to be coming up on a season finale, so there is going to be some dead air space soon.

    Sprint to Offer Palm Pre Nationwide on June 6
    $199, sprint stores, telesales, Radio Shack, Best Buy and Walmart.

    Be sure to note that is select Walmart stores. Not all Walmarts handle Sprint.

    For me the point is the branding identity of Walmart which is cheap and hoi polloi.

    As far as how many walmarts handle sprint, I am sure that is flexible. My guess is Walmart will continue to expand it's carrier relationships as it has been doing to the point of all stores offering Sprint very soon

    They sell the iPhone at Wal Mart....and in the mean time, you can buy way higher end electronics than a cheap 19" Emerson TV stacked in the center aisle for 59.00.

    Wal Mart is rapidly shedding it's "cheap crap only" image as far as electronics go.

    But anyhow...today is a happy day! We have come along way, a lot of rumors, a lot of dates. So....eventhough I don't drink, lets all raise that virtual glass of bubbly and have a toast!

    It's been a great ride, and it will get even more exciting!
