WSJ: Verizon getting Pre in January 2010?

Can you hear me now?

‘Ole Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO extraordinaire, just days ago put the smackdown on Verizon, telling them to “check their facts” and declaring that Sprint’s exclusivity with the Pre was longer than six months, and Sprint themselves have said that they have an exclusive on the Pre at least through 2009. According to the Wall Street Journal’s source - a person familiar with the situation - the Palm Pre will land with big V in January 2010. That’s both after the close of 2009 (by virtue of being 2010), and also longer than the six months Ivan Seidenberg spouted off (seven months, to be precise). Adding the Pre to Verizon would nearly triple Palm’s addressable market share.
