We just got a tip that those “events” on June 5th, the night before the Palm Pre release date, might not actually allow you to walk home with an early Pre. Sort of. According to our tipster, Sprint and Palm are worried about the allocation of units for launch day (where have we heard this before?) and don’t want to deplete the stock the night before.
We’re not sure what to make of this other than apparently those launch parties in every city in America will be reduced to just the absolutely huge markets. Or they could just have a certain amount for the launch parties and keep the rest? Oh, never mind. That would actually assume you trust Sprint employees. Now we get it.
