European Palm Pre - Coming to Dutch Carrier Hi? (Update: Likely Not)

Rédigé par Dieter Bohn le Vendredi 3 Juillet 2009



After O2 and possible Movistar, the next carrier on the rumor list for the GSM Palm Pre in Europe is Dutch carrier Hi.  Michael of Mypalmpre.nl tells us as much, writing in to say he's noticed the wonderful device on Hi's website.  As Engadget Mobile notes, this isn't as big a surprise as you might think, as both O2 and Hi are either owned or extremely friendly with parent company Telefonica.

With any luck, rumors of a European announcement next week will pan out, making this European Pre rumor season blissfully shorter than the Palm Pre release date madness we had here in the states.

Thanks to everybody that sent this in!

Update: Voice writes in to let us know that this particular site from Hi is actually not a good indicator of whether or not they'll carry the device (they have the iPhone 3G on there, for example).  It's more of a listing of how to set up any unlocked GSM phone on the network.  Voice also adds that "extremely friendly" is probably a little generous in describing KPN (parent company to Hi) and Telefonica, as merger talks broke down a long time ago.

Thanks Voice!
