Sprint says Palm Pre to go on sale June 6

. . .Sprint Nextel Corp. plans to start selling Palm Inc.'s much anticipated new smart phone, the Pre, on June 6 for $200. The device could give Palm a needed boost in sales and help Sprint stop the defection of subscribers to other wireless carriers.

The price — which requires a new two-year service plan and a $100 mail-in rebate — and the launch date are both close to what industry watchers were expecting.

The Pre, which looks like an iPhone but sports a slide-out keyboard in addition to a touch screen, is seen as Palm's chance of reversing a long slide and taking on newer smart phones like the iPhone and BlackBerry. . .

As cool as the Pre seems to be (and as much as we need more competition in the cellphone arena), the price (without the rebate) is $100 more than the iPhone, without all the apps, and then you're stuck with (shudder) Sprint, a carrier which seems most attractive to the cheap-above-all bunch.

I hope it does well- I really do. But I'm not holding my breath.
