Sprint and Palm have been mum about the release date of the Pre, but it looks like that won’t stop Sprint from ensuring its employees are completely prepared to hawk the savior phone as soon as it drops. Sprint has apparently sent out an email stating, “Employees can expect training to start in April as well as multiple communications to get them excited and ready to help our customers.” With the ball starting to roll on device training this month, things are surely on track for a 1H launch — which is as much as we’ve gotten out of Sprint and Palm at this point. We were thoroughly impressed with the Pre at CTIA and it if it wasn’t ready for its public debut at that point, it was certainly close. Palm is seemingly putting all of its eggs into one basket for the time being however, so it’s no wonder the company is taking every precaution and ironing out as many wrinkles as possible before units start moving.

Thanks, Philip!
