Do you want to have the Palm Pre on T-Mobile ? here is how

palm pre gsm version

If you think T-Mobile will launch one day a Palm phone, specially the Palm Pre.. forget about it..  But here is how you can use the Pre without switching to Sprint.  Palm is going to release soon the new Unlock GSM version of its new phone, The Palm Pre.

The bad news starts with the keyboard. This version of the Pre has the QWERTZ keyboard layout that is preferred in Germany. However, the only difference is that the Z and Y keys are swapped. Another bad news, the lack of 3G ( for T-Mobile), but not for AT&T (according with the manual), if you get the American Version.

And the selling price is high: $715. Still, buying it does not require signing a voice or data contract.

The device does not have any carrier branding on it.

eXpansys has already shipped its first shipment of unlocked Palm Pre units, but is expecting a second one in soon.

Those who would like to order one can do so from the eXpansys USA website.

    Why do companies do silly things like change the Y and Z over. It reminds me of when I got some driving lessons in a car where the windscreen wiper and indicator was the opposite way around which meant I was constantly putting on the windscreen wipers when I really meant to indicate. It just annoys customers!!

    I have owned my Pre since november 2010. It has been the the best OS I have laid my hands on. And the touch screen is unbelievably responsive. All the Iphone has on the Pre is it's extensive app catalog. Although, I think anyone is crazy to pay 700 for a cell phone of any kind. 150 yes, 700 you can buy a sweet laptop.

    What led subscribers to connect to CSRs of this provider.
    Perhaps most important request iss to create a consumer account
    plus password; forgo this just when you’re 110 percent sure no one eelse usually like to gain access to the PC, ever, or when you’re so dull-as-dishwater which it wouldn’t matter.

    One does not have to have a liver disorder to receive the health
    benefits from taking Milk Thistle. To minimize toxins from entering your body, try to avoid
    other drinks such as soda, artificial juices, and alcohol, as these don’t help make the situation any better.
    There are a few types of food that you should avoid on the best detox diet, while taking plenty of fruits, vegetables, seeds, raw nuts, herbal teas,
    water, and beans.

    Once you identify the trend, you will need to find its credibility.
    The final pay-off is presumed to pay off the entire balance of the loan in full.
    The only means for a property broker to make money while they’re representing a homeowner is to charge a commission, which is a portion of the price the home actually sells for.

    It’s difficult to find educated people about this subject, however, you seem
    like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing
    without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Very good blog!
