Sprint Reaffirms Pre Exclusivity Through 2009
Amidst claims from its two chief competitors that too they plan to offer the Palm Pre, a Sprint spokesperson has publicly reaffirmed that the company will remain the exclusive carrier for the Pre through 2009.
"We have the Pre through 2009," said [Sprint] spokesman James Fisher.
Palm shares popped nearly 10% yesterday on word that the Verizon Wireless CEO remarked that they plan to offer the Palm Pre smartphone in six months. AT&T's chief also made similar comments on Wednesday.
