Rumored Palm Pre Release Dates

Palm and Sprint have not released an official release date for the Palm Pre. Combine that with the most anticipated handset of the year (to this point) and you have a rush of rumors regarding a potential release date. Today’s rumor du jour is a March release date based on Sprint document unveiled at BGR. The in-stock date for the Palm Pre is listed as March 15th.

There is also speculation of a late May release, with the Palm Pre replacing the Palm Treo 755p. Net: We do not have an official release date, but May appears to be a safe bet. Apple is rumored to be releasing a new iPhone in June, so Palm would effectively steal Cupertino’s thunder with a May release of the Palm Pre. Stay tuned to Everything Treo (and our soon to be announced Pre website) for complete coverage.

AT&T Palm Centro Rumored for February 19th Release

A member in our forums has received confirmation from an AT&T Store Manager that the Palm Centro will be released on February 19th.

The source indicated the Palm Centro will be priced at $99 (presumably after rebates) and it will come in white. Sprint’s exclusivity on the Palm Centro was rumored to be 3 months and they began shipping in early October. Palm Europe announced a GSM Centro releasing this week, lending credibility to a US release being imminent. This release date has not yet been announced or confirmed by either Palm or AT&T.

Photos of the Palm Centro for AT&T have been circulating on the blogosphere for the past few months. However, it’s yet to be seen if Palm will bring over the Phone application that made it’s debut on the Palm Treo 680. For some reason, the Phone app did not make it’s way to the Treo 700p or Treo 755p, but those smartphones were only released on Verizon and Sprint. The Palm Centro will mark the first Palm smartphone on AT&T since the Palm Treo 680. If AT&T has some sort of exclusive on the Phone app, one can only hope that it’s part of the Palm Centro release. The phone application on the iPhone is actually reminiscent of the Palm phone application, offering easy access to favorites, recent calls and more. If the February 19th date is correct, we won’t have much longer to wait for confirmation.
