O2 rumoured as launch partner for Palm Pre in the UK

O2 rumoured as launch partner for Palm Pre in the UK

 

Telefonica has agreed with manufacturer Palm to launch the Palm Pre smartphone in the UK, Spain and Latin America, according to reports.

 

The Spanish news outlet, Expansion, said O2’s parent has already signed the agreement, quashing rumours that Vodafone was likely to distribute the phone.

 

Palm’s Pre phone is the first phone from the US-based company to reach the UK market for some time. Vodafone has been selling the company’s Treo Pro, but the handset has faced tough competition from RIM’s Blackberry and Nokia’s E Series.

 

An O2 spokeswoman said: ‘Our device strategy operates on the principle that the proposition has to be right and it has to add value to the customer. As part of that, we go for the best in class of any category of handset. We have made no announcement on this particular handset.’
