Palm’s last stand – Introducing the Palm Pre (Exclusively for Sprint)

January 9, 2009 | By | 6 Comments

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.

No pricing has not been announced as of yet, however the device should be launching very soon. If you want to find some more details on Pre head over to Palm.com or Sprint.com.

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?

    I can’t wait to get one of these phones. I’ve had palm cellphones for six years and finally GPS and 3.5mm like everybody else! Slide longer, 8 gigs, hopefully it can read 8gig micro cards. Plus I’ll watch my slingbox from home. What’s not to love with this!!!

    I have to say, I could not agree with you in 100%, but that’s just my IMHO, which could be very wrong.
    p.s. You have an awesome template . Where have you got it from?

    I’m going to be trading out my blackberry pearl for this. I don’t really like the look of it… kind of pebble-esque… but the features are more than enough to make it the iPhone killer.
