Holy hell, how's this for some New Years news; Bright Side of News has just reported that Palm will be revealing the third iteration of the Palm Pre next week at CES 2010. Palm has already sent out press invites for a conference on Thursday, January 7, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. It's not entirely clear exactly what this conference is about, but the most obvious answer is the Pre 3.
BSN* claims that the Pre 3 will launch on Verizon's network. We've heard rumors of a Verizon Pre for a while now. In fact, earlier this week we heard that the Pre and Pixi (aka Pre 1 and Pre 2) would be coming to Verizon. A new, updated version of the Pre is very much due. I can see Big Red selling the Pre 1 for $99, giving the Pixi away for free with a contract, and charging $199 for the Pre 3. That would give Verizon an impressive phone platform to compete with the new iPhone and the Nexus One.
CES 2010 will start on the 7th of January 2010 and lasts until the 10th. Of course CES news is already pouring in. Stay up to date by reading our CES 2010 section.
