    Palm Pre: New Phone and OS

    Palm introduced their new phone, called the Pre.



    It's a touchscreen phone with slide-out keyboard, and a new web-based OS.

    3" display, 320x480 resolution.

    more to come.

    Even so, I really hope this comes to ATT (or an Andriod-based device) within the next six months. It looks like a neat phone.

    Phone, GPS, mp3 player with bluetooth....


    functional.



    edit: " with TI's new OMAP CPU under the hood -- which Palm claims provides laptop-style power."

    every phone with a touchscreen isn't an iPhone lookalike.

    QFT. If that were the case, then all phones would be Palm Clones.

    somehow, Palm figured out how to put in a removable battery!!! I know!!! Someone call Apple and tell them the technology now exists, I know they've been waiting for it.

    sounds like the processor power really makes this phone fast.

    check out the UI at engadget

    Live from Palm's CES press conference - Engadget


    lots of open apps at once.

    Palm might just have something here.
