Sprint's and Palm just confirmed during a webcast conference that the Pre is still on target for a release in the first half of 2009 and will use Sprint's "Everything" line of plans.

Individuals can choose from 450 minute ($69.99), 900 minute ($89.99) or unlimited plans ($99.99). Families can choose from 1500 minutes ($129.99), 3000 minutes ($169.99) or unlimited plans ($189.99). Business customers will also be able to pool their minutes together using about 5 different plans. They don't want people signing up for voice-only plans because they don't want people incurring extra charges they're not entirely aware of.

Sprint had no other information on release specifics or specific phone pricing, but the Touchstone wireless charger will be sold separately.
