Sprint Employees begin training on Palm Pre

Justin Cauchon April 10, 2009 0


We just keep getting more evidence that the Palm Pre launch is imminent. A few days ago Sprint started an ad campaign promoting the Pre and today we just learned the Sprint employees have begun training on the Palm Pre. In an email from Sprint the company said, “Employees can expect training to start in April as well as multiple communications to them excited and ready to help our customers.” Sources are saying that the training has already started though, implying that this email was send before it was leaked. Check out the rest of the email after the jump!

  • Pricing for the Palm Pre phone has yet to be determined.
  • The Palm Pre will be the first phone to run on Palm webOS – a brand-new operating system, invented exclusively for mobile use and designed to be constantly connected to the web!
  • The Palm Pre’s webOS interface lets users keep multiple applications open and move easily between them.
  • The Pre offers an instinctive user experience that seems to anticipate the user’s next move.
  • When closed, the phone is ideal for phone calls, web browsing, music, photos and videos.
  • When open, Pre is optimized for e-mail and text messaging with a keyboard that slides out only when needed.
  • The Palm Pre will compete favorably with the hero products at other carriers including the Apple iPhone, BlackBerry Storm, andT-Mobile G1. Sprint expects the device to attract many customers andwill market heavily against the competition. More competitive information to come as we approach launch.
  • Still not convinced? PCWorld.com said in an April 2, 2009 article: “Overall, despite not having seen the Palm Pre yet, there are plenty of reasons to get excited!”
  • At it’s initial launch, the Palm Pre will be exclusively available through Sprint.
  • Our customers will be the first to experience the Palm web OS – keeping us ahead of the competition.
  • The 2009 launch of the Palm Pre is expected to be more than just any old phone launch. Remember the 2008 launch of the Instinct? Think bigger and better!
  • It is critical that Sprint remain ahead of the competition and not allow any important information to be leaked to the public before we are set and ready to go.
  • Employees can expect training to start in April as well as multiple communications to get them excited and ready to help our customers.
