Logicomm CEO: Palm Pre coming April 30 for $299

Logicomm CEO Jim Vance appears to have a Twitter account. But so does everyone these days.

What everyone doesn't have, of course, are tipsters who tell them that the Palm Pre smartphone will arrive on April 30, 2009, for the low, low price of $299. But we wouldn't know that, unless...

...Vance decided to tweet that information out to the world. D'oh!

Eagle-eyed Peter Ha at CrunchGear spotted the series of tweets:

@heeeyrold @dberube We do a lot of betas 4 Sprint. Also testing WiMax fones. Not sure if Pre is final. Release dte of 4/30, so I’m told..

@darthpooh79 Sprint claims that 4/30 is a line in the sand, according to my acct mgr there…he’s usually right on #Palm Pre

BTW - heard frm source (not Sprint) that Pre price tag 2 be $299 with 2 year ctrct…bet it’s $100 or so after all the hype wears off

Funny that Vance's Twitter account is now private. Hmm! Good thing his conversation partner's isn't:

...which makes me wonder about that line about Twitter and Pre (but hey, we're still pre-production, technically).

What do you think? Is April 30th soon enough? Is $299 a fair asking price for Pre?
