SeXXXy Palm Pre out June 6 in US = Yippee!

Remember the sexxxy piece of tech I was raving about last week? Yep, the Palm Pre is finally gonna be released Stateside on the Sprint network on June 6th (which is a Saturday... odd...). It'll be selling for $299, but if you sign up for a 2-yr contract you're eligible for $100 mail-in-rebate. Yay, way to make your customers work to save a hundred bucks. Ugh. Why don't they just SELL it for $199 straight up?!?

(BTW,the rumorang says that the Pre costs $549 without a 2-yr contract...)

Not only can lucky (?) Yanks pick this up at their local Sprint store, they can also get the techtacular Pre at Best Buy, Radio Shack, as well as their local Wal-Marts.

No word on international release dates (Canada, yep, you're outta luck. AGAIN).

As happy as I am for this, too bad the Pre's launch is two days ahead of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC)... that's when Apple is expected to announce the newest iPhone latest Apple gadgets.

Not only that, the Blackberry Storm 2 is rumoured to be released next month as well. Crazy! Let the battle o' the touchscreens begin!

I think I'll wait to see what Apple says first before jumping on this tech-sexiness...
