Last week, we brought you news that Verizon would have the Palm Pre inside of six months. Sprint's stock took a nose dive, and they fired back that their exclusivity arrangement was going to last at least until 2010. Now, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse has elaborated on the situation,

"They need to check their facts. That just is not the case. Both Palm and Sprint have agreed not to discuss the length of the exclusivity deal. But I can tell you it’s not six months."

At the same press event Hesse told reporters that Sprint was a "very different" company now than they were twelve months ago. He cited rising customer satisfaction surveys, independent reports of the reliability of their 3G network, and several big cost-saving plans Sprint offers as proof of this fact.

Sprint's attained a bad reputation over the last couple of years as being behind the curve and offering poor customer service and coverage. While Hesse claims that the company has turned a corner, it's going to take more than a little while to convince the masses of that fact. If the Palm Pre will be sticking exclusively with Sprint for a while longer they might just have a chance of pulling it off.
