Sprint Puts Palm Pre On Notice, EOL

The original Palm Pre, exclusive to Sprint, has been tagged as EOL (End of Life). The first device with WebOS, introduced as an effort to bring Palm back into the mobile business has been unavailable from the Sprint web store since early last week and is now being cleared out of distribution channels.

Sprint had U.S exclusivity for the entire duration of 2009 and broke their sales record – Tim Donahue, VP of Business Marketing for Sprint said We experienced our best one day of sales and single weekend sales for any phone we’ve launched in our history. That is quite an accomplishment for Palm (who were recently purchased by HP for $1.2B), as they only boast roughly 4.9% U.S marketshare.
