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."

BEOS aficionado may recall that Palm owns the source code to BEOS. Although it may be a stretch to think that BEOS became WebOS, it's much more likely that BEOS is the internal Godfather to WebOS...
