Until Palm gives us a release date for the Pre, we plan on obsessively combing every rumor we can find...and combine them into ridiculously speculated headlines.
Rumor of the Day #1
Palm has already started shipping Pres from China to the US. This in itself doesn't point to a specific release date, but the handsets are said to be ready for distribution—they contain the Pre's final release firmware.
Rumor of the Day #2
According to Sprint Gurus forums, May 17th won't be the release date of the Pre. Instead, it could come June 7th...or on a totally different, undisclosed date.
