Congratulations to all of my German friends and colleagues, the Palm Pre has arrived! Folks in the country can grab the GSM Palm Pre for €481 (just over $700 USD) sans contract, or finance it with 24 monthly payments of €20 via something called ‘My Handy’. For all the details brush up on your German and head over to O2 Germany.
To coincide with the launch, O2 Germany has added a couple of apps to the Catalog for ‘Preebies’… a move that will certainly please the early Pre adopters in Germany. The apps include wetter.com, VZ-Netzwerke, ran and billiger.de. I’m sure the German audience loves the local flavor, along with the fact that each of the aforementioned apps are free.
