O2 plays down Palm Pre carrier rumours

O2 plays down Palm Pre carrier rumours

O2 has denied rumours that it is to become the exclusive carrier for the much-hyped Palm Pre smartphone when it launches in the UK later this year.

A report in The Guardian on Sunday claimed that O2 had sealed the deal with Palm, which has already signed up Sprint in the US where the Pre will be released in limited numbers next month.

However, an O2 spokesperson said today: “We do not comment on rumour and speculation, and have made no announcement on this particular handset.” If the rumour is confirmed, it will be good timing for O2. Although the company is currently the exclusive provider for the iPhone, Apple is expected to open up the handset to other operators in the UK.
