As the month of April gets underway more and more Palm PRE launch news is emerging.  This time, we’ve got word that Sprint employees will begin training for the device.  This is firmed up by a memo that states all “Employees can expect training to start in April as well as multiple communications to get them excited and ready to help our customers.”

Philip Lam of Prethinking also reached out to Sprint and got a confirmation that said “I would like to inform that Sprint is in the process of providing the training for the new Palm Pre. Once it’s launched, Sprint will be ready to serve their valued customers regarding the Palm Pre”.

And to further solidify things (deep breaths), Sprint has now put a ‘vacation blackout’ on the month of May for all Sprint retail employees, which mimics an AT&T move before the iPhone launched.

So there you have it.  The PRE will probably launch early May. Looks like all those TV commercials that were recently rolled out were for good reason.
