Palm Pre now available to buy in the UK

As from today, the 16th October, you can buy a Palm Pre from O2 if you want to.

At the moment the only way to get a “free” Pre is to sign up to a 24 month contract or pay £44.05 per month. That’s a lot of money to pay each month unless you will actually use the 1200 minutes you will get. Of course, with all the deals, you will get unlimited web and Wi-Fi, that you would certainly need as the new Web OS is permanently connected to the internet.

There are five different packages available, four on 18 month contracts and one on the 24 month.

It will be very interesting so see how Pre sales go, as I feel that a lot of people are currently waiting to see what Orange and Vodafone have to offer price wise with the iPhone 3GS.


Ronan Dunne, CEO of Telefonica O2 UK said “Today’s announcement reinforces O2’s position as the home of the smartphone. With the addition of the excellent Palm Pre to our already extensive portfolio, we will continue to offer our customers the widest range of the very best devices on the market today.”
“There’s a lot of excitement about Palm Pre in Europe as we continue to expand Palm webOS products across new carriers and countries,” said Jon Rubinstein chairman and chief executive officer, Palm, Inc. “We look forward to launching Palm Pre with O2 so people in the UK can see firsthand how Palm webOS offers a new and better smartphone experience.”
