More Palm Pre launch rumors
An internal memo from Palm highlights a launch launch for the Palm Pre on June 5, fueling the rumors that the smartphone will debut on June 7.
Ugh. Another day, another Palm Pre rumor.
The latest one comes from the Boy Genius Report and adds more fuel to the fire that the Pre will launch on or around June 7.

As Engadget Mobile points out, there could be several scenarios to come out of this: 1) It could all be prep for a June 7 release, which would keep with Sprint's habit of launching new products on Sundays; 2) Sprint could break its own tradition and release it on Friday, June 5 (better for weekend sales, right?); or 3) It's all a bunch of crock. As Engadget Mobile astutely points out, the "Employee Benfits" typo is a bit of a red flag.
