The first transport carrying the Palm Pre is on its way to Louisville, Ky., according to a tipster. Whether this is puckish rumor-mongering, or the truth, we don’t know.
But Tuesday morning an anonymous source called in a report to the aptly named “Everything Pre” Web site, claiming that the first shipment of Palm Inc.’s saving-grace smartphone has left Hong Kong and is en route to the U.S. via UPS. There, it will be reprocessed and shipped out nationally, the source said.
The arrival of the Pre has been the subject of furious rumor as to release date, with most speculation centered on a late May or June arrival in stores.
