British Neworks Decline The Palm Pre 2: "Palm have been dealt a heavy blow in the UK as it emerged that all of the UK's major networks have turned down the Palm Pre 2. The device will of course be available for British customers to buy SIM free, but none of the networks will be stocking it in their portfolios.
Orange said they had no plans to stock it and Vodafone followed suit, even though their French division, SFR, does offer the handset, Vodafone UK will not be putting it on their shelves. Even O2, who bagged an exclusive deal to sell the original Pre last year are distancing themselves from it, and that's despite the fact that they will continue to offer the Pre Plus and Pixi.
It's not the sort of start HP would have hoped for its handset division after purchasing Palm, but with more devices on the way perhaps they can change the networks' minds."
