Upstaging Apple’s WWDC conference by two days, Sprint has announced that it will start selling the Pre on June 6th.  For $199 after rebate and with a two year contract.

Did Sprint intentionally choose the 65th anniversary for the rollout of the Pre?  Attaching Apple?

Rumor #1 – the New York Times reports that the Palm Pre will be released the first week in June. On Sprint (sigh).  I’m betting sooner so that they beat whatever Apple is planning.

Rumor @2 – Apple will release either a new, cheaper iPhone, a new, cheaper iPhone rate plan or both.  The rate plan might drop to limited-access level for $20/month.  That’s ten bucks less than the current plan.  As the comments point out, if ten dollars a month separates you from having the iPhone you can’t afford the plan.
