Verizon to Also Pick Up Pre After Sprint Exclusivity

Looks like you can put Verizon next to AT&T in the "We don't want the Pre launch on Sprint to be too successful so we're going to tell everybody we're getting it on our network too" camp.  So says Verizon executive Lowell McAdam:

"Over the next six months or so you will see devices like Palm Pre and a second generation Storm," on the Verizon Wireless networks McAdam said.

Now technically "device like" doesn't necessarily mean they're getting the Pre for sure, but we're putting this in the likely camp.  We're also very excited to see Palm make a triumphant return onto Verizon's network.  Relations between the two have been fairly chilly of late.

We could also spend some time reading into the "six months or so" bit as a sign that Sprint's exclusivity is the industry-standard 6 months, but it's a little too early in the game to assume that.

Thanks to everybody that sent this in!
