Only two days ago we got wind of some “internal memos” at Sprint that suggested there were TWO launch dates set by Sprint for the Palm Pre: May 17th and June 29th. The first was the primary target with the second being a back up contingency plan in case shipment volumes were not met. Well, the rumor mill has now increased the chances that this is spot on.
The above picture shows internal Sprint documentation with required delivery dates for various products, including the Palm Pre on May 16th. Who are these deliveries to? Probably from the warehouses to the retail stores, meaning Sprint wants them ready to sell on May 16th or 17th. Then again Palm is sticking to their “1st Half of 2009” statement so the window has effectively narrowed to between May 16th and June 30th.
This middle of May thing is starting to look good. Really good. I can almost taste it. Mmmmm Pre-licious.
