"Sim-free" Palm Pre pops up in the UK for two online retailers

Sure us US consumers might have gotten our fill of the Palm Pre, but the rest of the world is still probably anticipating it. The WebOS powered device from the veteran smartphone makers is popping up for two UK online retailers – HandTec and mPhone. Now the ironic thing about it all is that they'll be offering a SIM-free Pre for $856 and $827 respectively. The only information that's missing is when the first UK deliveries will be made. We know that UK based O2 will be the exclusive carrier of the Pre in that region, but there's no sign yet on the horizon as to when it'll launch and pricing for the coveted device. These two online retailers might have a head start, but you'll be paying a premium to get them – better hope you saved up a lot for this one.
