We’ve been waiting almost five months for the Palm Pre smartphone to hit stores. Now Sprint has finally announced the details: In two and a half weeks, you’ll be able to get the Pre for $200 (after a $100 mail-in rebate) in stores around the country. If you don’t have a Sprint retail outlet in your town, not to worry. Best Buy, RadioShack, Sprint’s online store, and even some Wal-Marts will carry the phone, too.

To start making calls on your brand-new ringer, you’ll need to sign up for two years of service on a plan that starts at $70 a month (Sprint’s Everything Data or Business Essential with Messaging and Data plans). You can also pick up an inductive charging dock, plus a case for the Pre that lets it grab power from the dock, for $70.
