Palm Pre debuts on O2 website, available "before Christmas"
Very quietly and without too much fanfare, the Palm Pre has slipped onto the homepage of the O2 website:
Palm has signed an exclusive UK distribution deal with O2 - a smart move for Palm since it ensures O2 won't market the iPhone too aggressively against it, although that decision made a little more sense before the rumours about T-Mobile and Orange stocking the iPhone 3G began circulating.
The brochure page for the Palm Pre talks potential buyers through the functionality, but reveals little that we didn't already know - no hints on pricing, only that the handset will be available "in time for Christmas". What the page is missing is the ability to subscribe for news on the Palm Pre once a launch date and pricing is announced; if you want to know more, you'll just have to check back between now and December 24th.
