PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The Palm Pre will hit the stores on Saturday, June 6, and it has a very important task to fulfil. Contrary to what the sensationlist media want you to believe, that task is not to dethrone the iPhone, but to save a flailing company. Palm requires for its very survival that the Pre and its brand-new operating system webOS is a success. CNet has taken the Palm Pre through its paces, and despite some flaws, they were quite pleased, especially on the software front. Update: Another review, from Engadget: "To put it simply, the Pre is a great phone, and we don't feel any hesitation saying that."

GSM version out In September for Verizon.

Should be in the UK for Christmas... Question is, what price? How?

Live and tell...


Verizon is still a CDMA provider and the Sprint exclusive runs through the end of 2009. I've yet to see any mention that Palm has a GSM version close to ready, though they would be fools not to do it.

I wonder why Palm can't design a decent keyboard. The keyboard on the Centro is also far too cramped to be used easily by most adults.
