Palm Pre: Coming out June 5-7

The New York Times has given us what should prove to be the final release date for the new Palm Pre smartphone. Buried amidst an article about smartphone hype and the mobile phone marketing explosion was this line; “As soon as June 8, just a few days after the expected release of the Pre...”

This new info gels with the previously-anticipated release date rumors. It's all-but-confirmed now that we will be seeing the Pre launch between the 5th and the 7th. I'm betting closer to the 5th, myself.

If you haven't read that NYT article yet, by the way, I suggest you do. It makes some very interesting points about the way the mobile industry is developing. Right now we're seeing smartphone releases that are in some ways as hotly anticipated as the coming of blockbuster films or big-name video games. This is a very new trend for the industry, and it reflects the growing importance that multi-media devices, especially smartphones, play in our lives.

The article also makes the point that the release of the Pre is going to be a crucial event for the futures of two major corporations. Both Sprint and Palm need the Pre to be a hot seller in order to make a name for themselves in the smartphone market before its expansion starts to slow. Palm is also fiscally dependent on the Pre doing well; they've been hemmoraging money as of late, and they need some big sales to boost their flagging name.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
