Today, O2 Germany unveiled the release date and price for its upcoming webOS-based Palm Pre, which the operator will offer exclusively in Germany and other European countries. Palm's webOS platform brings mobile applications together in an intuitive and multitasking environment. The Palm Pre itself impresses with its smooth, elegantly rounded and ergonomic design and a full QWERTZ keyboard which users slide out only when needed. Thanks to the design of Palm Pre the phone feels natural in the hand and is so small that it comfortably fits in every pocket. When closed, the device is ideal for phone calls, web surfing or listening to music and watching videos.
When the keyboard is open, it is optimized for writing E-Mails and text messages. With its curved slider and gesture-controlled touch screen interface Palm Pre fuses exquisite design with the revolutionary Palm webOS software for fast access to content on the device or web.
O2 will offer free choice of contract for Palm Pre in Germany, when launched on October 13th. With the new concept O2 My Handy customers can finance Palm Pre independent of the contract at zero percent interest rate. Customers make a down payment of 1 Euro in the O2 shop or online at www.o2online.de and pay the remaining sum in 24 monthly rates of 20 Euro each; which means the GSM/UMTS Palm Pre will costs - without a contract - 481 Euro.
