Palm Pre Spotted in the Wild Back of a Sprint Store

Illustration for article titled Palm Pre Spotted in the Wild Back of a Sprint Store

This strapping, pixelated young gentleman—seen here posing with a similarly strapping, less pixelated Palm Pre—says he took these pictures in the back room of a Sprint store. Is the Pre launch imminent?

First, some lightweight forensics: With faintly recognizable Sprint logos scattered around the room, the photos do look like they were taken in the back of a Sprint store, or at least somewhere within the Sprint industrial machine. The EXIF data on the photos says they were taken with a BlackBerry 8330 yesterday evening. So far, so good.

For some reason, this guy didn't feel the need to obscure his face (we've done it for him), which implies—though in no definite way—that he doesn't really care much about his job, or the job of the friend who let him in, or whatever. Backwards ballcap dude isn't an exec, factory worker or a person with special access who has his hands on a Pre: it's just some guy at a local Sprint store. These pictures are sqaurely circumstantial as far as evidence of a launch goes, but hey, that rumored early June date might not be so far-fetched. More pictures below. [Thanks, guy!]

More like PRE-cursor to epic fail, Sprint could be giving out free gold bricks with this thing and I wouldn't take it. Their customer service is atrocious. Yes ALL carriers suck, I just have beef with this one since they were my first carrier and they let me down considerably.
