O2 have the Palm Pre deal for the UK, so say The Guardian

Palm O2 is set to follow up its success with the iPhone in the UK by grabbing an exclusive deal to stock the device that gadget fans reckon is the closest thing to a real competitor to the Apple device, the Palm Pre.

The UK’s largest mobile phone operator, with more than 20 million customers, is understood to have seen off fierce competition for the new handset from Vodafone and Orange, and it will be available in the UK in time for the crucial Christmas period.

For O2, who refused to comment, getting the Palm Pre will add another must-have gadget at a time when Apple is expected to open up the iPhone to other operators in the original four markets – the US, UK, France and Germany – where it initially opted for exclusive deals.

We reported a couple of days ago that there might be a shortage of Palm Pre units once it goes on retail next month.

With many anticipating the Palm Pre’s release next month, it would be a shame if both Palm and Sprint can’t cope up with the demand for this next-generation smartphone. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case with all these Palm Pre shortage rumours floating around.
