New Palm

Coming soon from Palm, the Palm Pre:



I didn't care for the G1 much when I played with it (I didn't like that weird sort of hump at the end when you have it in horizontal mode). The iPhone is seductively tempting with all its apps ... I really do like it, but I sort of don't want to switch to AT&T to get it.

This, though ... this is coming from Sprint, and I've heard they have a cheaper data plan than most, and it's Palm. Despite the new OS, I'm sure that they'll offer a means of recognizing current contact information and importing it (or some third party developer will).

Also, I think it's the prettiest phone of its type that I've seen. It looks very sleek. Palm has needed a comeback device, and this could be it.

I'm at least a year away from considering a new phone purchase, and I'll be very interested in seeing the market competition at that time.

EDIT: Video of a live demonstration of the device:

After watching these videos, if it works half as well as it does in this demo, I'm like: "iPhone who?" I'm impressed with the elegance of the user interface. I could see myself going into full geek squee over this if the reality is anywhere near the presentation.

I was trying to sound a little reserved in my post because I'm cautious about getting all excited about pre-release gadgets, but my first reaction was, "OMG that is GORGEOUS!" And if it works like they say? How marvelous would it be to have my Outlook calendar from work and my personal Google calendar all organized in an easy-to-read merged view? Supersweet sexy, I say!
