Palm Pre coming to O2 ?

image Numerous Spanish media outlets are reporting today that Telefónica’s Movistar will exclusively offer the Palm Pre in Spain, UK and Latin America. The Spanish newspaper Expansion reports (Translated) that Telefónica will offer the Pre in Spain "before summer."
In addition, the paper also reports that Telefónica’s subsidiary brand O2, will exclusively market the Pre in the UK, beating out its rival Vodafone. Movistar will also have the exclusive on the Palm Pre in many Latin American counties.
A GSM version of the Palm Pre is in the works and was recently spotted at the 2009 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. At that time the Pre’s in use at MWC were seen running on the Vodafone network, however Palm refused to talk about any specific carrier deals during the show.

It’s unclear at this point if the "before summer" timeframe given in the source article is an artefact of translation or simply a rumour. Palm has yet to issue an official statement, however numerous sources and articles have been published in the Spanish media.

If this turns out to be the case it will be a major coup for O2 in the UK to sell the iPhone alongside the Palm Pre, what a killer device line up.
