AT&T wants Palm Pre after Sprint

by on25 June 2009


Despite not really doing the iPhone that well

Randall Stephenson said he wants his telco to flog the Palm Pre once Sprint's exclusive deal with the smartphone is over.

It is not clear how long Sprint will keep its exclusive deal, and many observers thought that it would be as permanent as AT&T's deal with Apple. However it looks like Palm might be in talks with other carriers to offer the Pre when the exclusive deal is over.

AT&T has also been in the spotlight for the way it handled its own exclusive deal with Apple over the iPhone. Stephenson has found himself on the receiving end of a lot of complaints about the way that his outfit had handled the sale of the iPhone and the network used to run it in the US.

Many observers think that Apple would have been better off doing what Palm did and go with Sprint.
