I know this doesn’t really count as BlackBerry news but I thought I’d show off Palm’s latest smartphone called “Pre”. This device seems to be a cross between Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s BlackBerry Storm. The Palm Pre features a 3.1″ touchscreen with multitouch, EVDO Rev. A, Wi-Fi, GPS, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB of internal storage and 3.0 megapixel camera to top it all off. Pre will also features Palm’s new WebOS (formally code-named “Nova”). The Palm Pre will start exclusively on Sprint in the United States and a GSM/3G version will be seen for other parts of the World. Palm also has included a new technology to wirelessly sync and charge to Pre called “TouchStone”. It’s an additional accessory that can be purchased once the device becomes available.
The specs on this device certaintally take a stab at both Apple and RIM but the question all over the interent is will it save Palm? Any readers here thinking of giving one a test drive?
