Will over at IntoMobile has it on good word that Palm Pre demo units have started arriving at Sprint retail outlets. According to Will's tipster, the Pres are being shipped in generic boxes under heavy security. I hung out with Will some at CTIA last month and found him to be a good guy, so I'll take his word on this one. Seriously, with all of the rumors and misinformation flying around about Pre (and every other would-be new phone out there), what better criteria for judging a source than, "I met the guy," right?
Sprint and Palm are supposedly gearing up for some sort of an announcement in the May 19 edition of the Wall Street Journal, and WSJ technology chief Walt Mossberg often gets high-profile devices for review well ahead of launch, so we could be drawing near to the long-awaited Pre launch date at last. In the meantime, if you happen upon a generic looking Palm box in a Sprint store, take a look inside an let us know what you find, alright?
