Palm Pre coming exclusively to O2 by Christmas

We heard rumours last week, and now O2 has confirmed that it will be exclusively selling the highly anticipated Palm Pre in the UK.Not content with on

Not content with once again getting exclusivity on the iPhone 3G S, which sold out of its 16GB version last week, the mobile operator announced via its official Twitter feed that it would also be getting its hands on the Pre – and in time for Christmas too.

O2 has said it wouldn't discuss on-sale dates or prices as yet, but to expect more within the next few months.

Of course you can probably expect iPhone-esque tariffs – read lengthy and pricey – but we'll have to wait to see if the Pre gets its own dedicated tariff or fits into O2's standard tariff line-up.

We'll keep you updated on all the news with this, but in the meantime, have a read of our full review of the Palm Pre to see what we thought of it when we got our hands on it last month.
