The Palm Pre version announced at CES on Thursday, which Sprint will get exclusive access to in the U.S., supports EV-DO Rev A for mobile broadband access, but Palm is also working on a more Euro-friendly 3G version of the handset. Colligan didn't elaborate on any of the technical details.
But if the Pre follows in the footsteps of other recently announced smart phones, it will likely support for HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) at 7.2Mbps (megabits per second), as well as HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) at 2Mbps.
The Pre comes equipped with Palm's new operating system, WebOS, and combines a touch interface with a QWERTY keyboard that slides out from the bottom of the phone.
No pricing has been announced so far.
