Palm Pre to be released on April 30th?

Palm Pre

So far, Palm has only confirmed that the Palm Pre will be released sometime in the first half of the year. But a Twitter post by a Palm Pre beta tester suggests that the Pre will be released on April 30th. The tweet comes from Jim Van who works for Logicomm, an IT company based in Rhode Island. Jim Van is a partner at the company.

Assuming that the leak is genuine, not only does Van reveal the release date but also indicates that the Pre will be offered for US$299.99 with a two-year contract.

As others have pointed out, would you not expect that beta testers would be under NDA by both Palm and Sprint? And would they really reveal this information under the Twitter account of their company? Unfortunately, the Twitter account is now private so we cannot expect to find out more from that source. We’ll have to see if new details will surface elsewhere to corroborate this rumour.
