Palm is showing off the UMTS version of its Pre smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Not much is known at this stage, but some rumors suggest the Treo maker is in talks with Vodafone, which would certainly help the company access many European markets. As for the release date, we’ve only heard GSM Pre will debut at some point in the second half of the year.
My two cents? I like the news but I don’t like the timeframe. This time, faster is better!
