Palm Pre is just around the corner and will be available very sooner in the stores for US Sprint Subscriber. GSM is the predominant wireless technology throughout the world and it is also used by AT&T and T-Mobile in the US. If the European GSM model is “quad-band”, then an “unlocked” version would be functional with any US sim card. Sprint is CDMA based carrier and GSM users may have to wait till September for Pre GSM edition as many companies started bookings for a Unlocked Palm Pre GSm edition phone. It’s a good news for peoples like me who never want’s to be bound with a specific carrier. MobileCityOnline is the one of vey first who claims to provide Unlocked Palm Pre GSM edition phone which is supported with 3G AT&T Standard , 3G EURO Standard, Quad Band 850/900/1800/1900. The Pre is available on Pre-order/Backorder @ $699.99. But the providers are unable to provide Expected Arrival Date at the moment.
Mobile City Online lists the retail price as $899.99, and their ‘cheaper’ price at $699.99. also lists the unlocked GSM Pre as having a $699.95 USD price tag with an expected ship date as June 2009.
