CES 2009: The Palm Pre

by Reverend_Danger   January 12, 2009 at 1:23PM  |  Views: 41

In a world of handhelds on diets, Palm has sheepishly hung its chubby head for some time.  However, they’re aiming to get back in the game with the lean, mean Palm Pre.  Operating on their just-announced proprietary WebOS, the Palm Pre features a touch screen and a slide-out qwerty keyboard for those of us stuck in the more tactile 2007. 

It’s got 8 gigs of flash storage, 802.11 b/g WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth.  No word on pricing yet, but the Palm Pre will be available in the first half of this year.

The Pre quite cleverly gleaned the best of the iPhone (3.1-inchy multitouch screen and relatively simple user interface) as well as the best of the Blackberry (the obvious-to-some-of-us QWERTY keyboard) and it made them have a baby. And what a beautiful baby it is.  The bow in this baby’s head, by the way, is a 3.5mm headphone jack and high-speed USB 2.0 drive.  Adorable. 

When it makes it to market, it will be available exclusively through Sprint.  Price predictions, though, have been anywhere between $100 and $400.
