TIMES STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

Ever since the Palm Pre smart phone came out in June exclusively as a product for the Sprint Nextel network, there have been rumors about when it would be offered by other cell service providers.

Last week, Verizon Communications Inc. confirmed that it would be offering the Palm Pre. The announcement came during a company conference call with industry analysts when Chief Operating Officer Dennis F. Strigl simply said: “We plan to offer the Palm Pre early next year.”

That was it. Information about just when Verizon will have the Palm Pre and how much it will cost will have to await future announcements.
