The Palm Pre has been made available for pre-order in the UK on two websites.

Palm's latest smartphone, which runs its WebOS platform, has been available in the US since June but has yet to be released in the UK yet.

However, it can now be pre-ordered through websites Handtec, which has the phone priced at £517.49 inc VAT, and mPhone, where the handset costs £449.98 inc VAT.

Play and Expansys are also advertising the handset on their sites, but it's not available to order yet and there is no price listed.

The move comes as the smartphone looks set to be officially unveiled in the UK this week.

Last week, Palm unveiled a second smartphone to take advantage of its WebOS, the Palm Pixi.
