Palm Pre and iPhone under one roof?
THIS MORNING'S news in the British press that the GSM version of the Palm Pre is likely to be carried exclusively by O2 is unlikely to be received well in Cupertino. While the Pre has apparently not been the iPhone killer device is was stoked up to be (after all, the 3GS sold a million units in a few days), the Pre is perhaps Apple's most direct competitor. How, I wonder, are O2 retail staff going to tread the line between the iPhone and the Pre? This could be bad news for O2 if the decision rings the warning bells on the Apple campus.
