FCC hints AT&T-ready Palm Pre by May

updated 06:25 pm EST, Wed February 10, 2010

Palm Pre with 850MHz HSPA 3 months away

An FCC filing has provided a likely clue as to when AT&T will carry the Palm Pre. Palm's availability date for photos in the FCC testing document is unusually pushed back to May 10th, or well after the technical details became public in November. Every Pre or Pixi released in the US so far has been shipped at or very close to the publication date for its FCC photos.

The naming scheme for the model number, O8F-CASG, is also a telltale sign: the CDMA version of the device is known as O8F-CASC. Palm is known to have internally codenamed the Pre as "Castle."

AT&T has already said it will carry two webOS phones in the first half of the year and so is likely to have both the Pre and Pixi by the May target date. Whether these are GSM Pre Plus and Pixi Plus variants is still an unknown. [via PreCentral]
