Shoppers who pick up their $200 Palm Pre smartphones starting June 6 will have no need to send away to Sprint Nextel for their $100 rebate because all of the U.S.-based 1,067 Best Buy Mobile outlets will provide them on the spot, the retailer said. The question is, will Best Buy have enough phones to sell: Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said he expected Palm Pre handsets to be in short supply “for a while.” CNET/Crave (5/20) , PC Magazine (5/20) , MocoNews.net (5/20)

PC maker Acer will expand its smartphone presence this year with the introduction of 10 models, including one based on Google‘s open-source Android and the remainder running on Windows Mobile software, a top executive said Wednesday.

To date none of them has said ‘thanks, but no thanks, and never come back.'” Reuters (5/20)
