It’s hard to believe that there is even more hype about the upcoming Palm Pre smartphone than there was for the Palm Foleo, but from the photos to the outlined specs, there seems to be valid cause for uproar. In case you have missed the news, here is a quick roundup of good Palm Pre info.
Palm Pre Everything you wanted to know. This article covers the new Palm operating system named webOS, which appears to be a true innovation in the realm of mobility, tech specs, the touchscreen functionality, ease of use and the awesome new interface.
Like previous operating systems that pushed the envelope, the Palm webOS is based on Linux and the browser is based on Webkit. There is also Another Pre hands on video, which is really lengthy, but gives you a great idea of what you would be using in a real world environment.
For a simple, yet useful information on the Palm Pre read the definitive FAQ. With a promise to update as often as new information rolls in, you will find tons of pictures, highlighted segments covering the Palm Pre gesture area, the Touchstone wireless charger, Synergy, the multitouch browser, features of webOS and more.
Lastly, I’ll leave you with two reviews from what I would like to call professional Palm enthusiasts. While Palm Addicts might not have the gloss of some of the more popular websites on the internet, the fact that they have been in business dealing exclusively with Palm devices, gives Palm Addicts more than enough credibility.
The first is Little things about Palm’s new-ness and the other is Palm Rolls the Dice in Las Vegas. At the bottom of the first article you will find a list of other noteworthy Palm Pre articles, which I think you might find worth reading, like this one from PCMag which mentions direct access to the Amazon MP3 store.
So far the Palm Pre is looking pretty good, I think there could be a few inprovements to the design, but I am really loving the user interface and interactivity, which is the true heart of the device. Overall Palm appears to be heading in the right direction. Now all that is left for Palm and Sprint to do is market the Palm Pre properly and set the right price point.
