There's been some debate as of late about whether Verizon Wireless will offer the Palm Pre in the new year. Though Verizon CEO Lowell McAdams said the company plans to sell the Pre in early 2010, TheStreet.com caused a bit of ruckus when it reported in late September that the carrier decided against selling the Pre. Subsequently, analysts called shenanigans on the TheStreet.com's story, and it looks like Verizon has reconfirmed its commitment to the Palm WebOS smartphone.
Responding to a customer's tweet over the weekend, Verizon said through its official Twitter account that it will carry the Palm Pre starting "early next year." Certainly good news for Pre fans, and things are definitely heating up at Verizon with the upcoming RIM BlackBerry Storm 2, Samsung Omnia 2, and the new Droid phone.
