Palm Pre Release Date Revealed by Sprint EOL List? March 15th?

Update:  BGR has updated their article to clear up a bit of confusion on the target launch date of the Pre.  Sprint wants to move their stock of Treo 755Ps (EOL targeted date in late May) before they get to the Pre.  So that probably moves the Pre release closer to May/Early June than Mid-March.

The Boy Genius Report has scooped up some juicy stuff this morning. Seems that there is a Sprint EOL list that reveals the Palm Pre's "target" launch date.

Yep, BGR couldn't post the actual list but one of their ninjas got them an internal document that shows some good stuff. Some EOL devices are listed, but so are some replacements that we've been anxiously waiting for, specifically the Palm Pre.

The document shows that the Palm 755p (blue) will be replaced by the Palm Pre. The target in-stock date of the Pre is March 15th.

Let's hope that this target date is for real so we can stop all the guessing.

Also listed in the Sprint EOL document is the Palm 800w to go EOL in April and to be replaced by the Treo Pro. Hmmm, the Treo Pro's target in-stock date is 2/15, but we already knew that, plus we now know that there were problems that caused those "in stock" Pros to go back for some repairs.

Anyway, let's hope that this 3/15 target date for the Palm Pre is for real so we can stop all the guessing.

Head over to BGR to see more EOL listings.

Thanks to Scot for the tip!
