Want to get your mitts on Palm’s (PALM) sexy new Pre smartphone but don’t want to sign your life over to Sprint Nextel (S)?
Good news: Palm is working on a 3G, “UMTS” edition of its phone that should work with GSM-based carriers like AT&T (T) and/or T-Mobile (DT).
No word on a release date, but given the Palm’s urgency to sell a lot of phones, we bet it’ll be out by Christmas.
(It’s possible the UMTS version is for non-U.S. carriers only, but we doubt it. There’s no reason for Palm to only marry itself to no. 3 Sprint.)
