Sprint employees fired for talking about the Palm Pre

Everyone, take notice: Sprint is very serious about not letting any tantalizing details leak about the upcoming Palm Pre. Apparently, the struggling wireless carrier cannot afford having any good, free press wrote about them. From what we hear, at least three retail employees have been let go for speaking about the Palm Pre outside the store’s walls.

The employees violated an NDA signed during the hiring process and therefore had to be let go. It’s dumbfounding that a company would lock down info so tight about a product that has already been announced, handled, and in the wild anyway. We pretty much know everything about the Palm Pre at this point besides the price and release date. And even that info doesn’t seem that important in the long run to fire people over. I mean, we’re going to find out about it eventually anyway.
