Palm Pre is coming. Soon. Really soon. They say it's about to show up on the shelves in May or June. Well, one thing is for sure: the closer it comes the more rumors surround it.
Like this one: according to BusinessWeek the manufacturing cost of a Pre is 138 US dollars which is way lower than iPhone's 174 US dollars or even BlackBerry Bold's 169 US dollars.
The next thing going on in Rumorlandia is that Pre's Mom and Dad are expecting its smaller brother later this year. We admit it does sound unsubstantial, as even the original Pre is still awaiting its release date.
It is supposed that the mini version of Pre (shall we say Mini-Pre?) will be targeted at other markets.
Supposedly, the Mini-Pre will also run the new WebOS but it's not clear whether there will be a hardware keypad.
Until then, we'll keep on waiting for the day the GSM-version of the Palm Pre becomes available.
By the way, you could be among the first to get one. All you need is a bit more luck and reviewers skills since Palm are looking for the Palm Real Reviewer (only US residents over 18 years of age may apply). Why not give it a shot?
