Palm Announces SFR Launch Details

SFR France Logo Palm webOS Palm has now officially announced the details for its webOS launch on Société Française du Radiotéléphone. As foretold, the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus phones will be available on April 27 on SFR's online store (www.sfr.fr) and on May 11 in all SFR stores and in retail.

Frank Esser, SFR chairman and chief executive officer, said, "SFR is extremely proud to be the first operator to launch Palm webOS smartphones in France. This alliance comes within the scope of our strategy to provide the best user experience for mobile Internet and the widest range of smartphones to our customers."

"We are excited to bring the Palm webOS experience to France for the first time so SFR customers can benefit from the unique ability to use natural gestures to switch easily between multiple open applications and always stay up to date," said Jon Rubinstein, Palm chairman and chief executive officer. "With the choice of the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus phones, customers across France can stay connected so they never miss a thing."

Both phones offer SFR customers greater flexibility for access to the Internet with Wi-Fi, and SFR Wi-Fi enables customers to use more than 2 million hotspots in France. In addition, the Palm mobile hotspot, a webOS app that can be downloaded from the Palm App Catalog, enables Pre Plus or Pixi Plus to act as a mobile Wi-Fi router. Customers can share wireless Internet connectivity with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as notebooks, gaming devices and portable media players.

SFR apps will also be available, such as "SFR TV," to access main TV channels in France on the phone; "SFR Wi-Fi"; and "SFR Mon Compte," which gives customers access to their SFR account while on the move.

SFR is one of Europe's largest alternative telecommunication operators, with a revenue of 12.4 billion euros in 2009 and a customer base of nearly half of all French people.

Are the other carriers proud to have Palm too? What have they said about Palm? Any quotes?

Thanks SFR for your kind words.

Europe has tremendous potential for Palm. SFR has embraced an independent North America brand and with their support and kind words can only enhance Palms desire to be the best that they can be and become.

i wonder if Europe would embrace a Palm signature series? Nations in Europe are founding nations of North America and would understand the great pride in celebrating the founders. An acknowledgement of the past efforts and sacrifices it took to make North America the land of the free has synergy in the efforts and sacrifices it took to be founders of Palm.

A sense of pride and acknowledgement shared with our friends in Europe and around our planet.

Some thoughts to kick around.

Qu'est-ce une chose fantastique à dire à propos de Palm. Très doux et pur. Je suis sûr que personne ne sera déçu.

Just a reminder of the people that are happy to work with Palm. Amid all the talk it is good to recall the true sentiments of Palm customers. It reaffirms why HP acquired Palm to create HP Palm. HP is now part of that sentiment of pride shared with Palm.
