Palm Pre GSM news

Most Palms are GSM so this shouldn't be a surprise:

Paolo, i'm pretty sure by GSM it includes 3G/UMTS/HSPA. i think i read somewhere it would be triband HSPA (850,1900,2100)

that would be pretty cool, but most likely its the same cdma version as Sprint. They keep mentioning that it is going to launch in July as well.

We may see other phones using the Palm WebOS, not just the Pre, come in GSM soon. Rogers wont want to lose any share because of one phone.

I don't think its about the market share but rather the options for those of us stuck on the Bell Network.

The Pre won't have any legitimacy until it supports GSM. This will be good news when it comes out.
