Palm Pre due for North America in GSM trim

updated 05:45 pm EDT, Fri August 14, 2009

Palm Pre N America GSM Inf

Private standards groups today revealed Palm's intention to launch the Pre for North American GSM carriers. A new version known as P100UNA has been listed at the Wi-Fi Alliance, the Bluetooth SIG and TÜVRheinland and, given that a P100UEU version exists for the European GSM launch, confirms that a North American GSM model is enroute. It's assumed this version will have HSPA-based 3G on the 850MHz band used by AT&T and Rogers.

None of the licenses specifically confirm whether or not the Pre will end up on either of the North American carriers, although it's rare for a North America-specific version of a phone to be developed without a carrier deal. Palm has occasionally sold older phones unlocked at full price but has rarely had success with the format.

Any release won't happen before early 2010, as Sprint has an exclusive on the Pre for the rest of 2009. [via PreCentral]
