Sites Claim Verizon Pre Confirmed

The headline says it all. We have two separate sites bringing us this news, putting an end to the earlier seemingly transparent attempt at stock manipulation. First, The Boy Genius Report is saying that they've "confirmed" Verizon Wireless will indeed be selling the Pre, There's no other meat to BGR's post: just this alleged confirmation from an anonymous tipster. Second is the E-Commerce Times, who have actually have a Verizon exec on record. Jim Gerace, executive director of media relations, says that Verizon will "offer the smartphone in January as planned".

You don't have to be a genius to see that Verizon's smartphone line-up is getting a little stale, and that in the absence of a CDMA version of that other smartphone, the Pre is an obvious catch for the USA's biggest carrier. Makes you wonder if anyone took TheStreet seriously.

This website measures cell phone radiation levels. It lists the Pre as available on both Sprint and Verizon

Giggle...apparently the Pre isn't good enough for Verizon

Palm Apologists Net-wide are now starting to pick up and relay the rumor that Verizon indeed is NOT going to be getting the Pre (No, they aren't! Yes, they are! No, they aren't!).

Instead, they're gonna get something BETTER than the Pre.

(like with more memory or and SD card or God-knows-what)
