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."

Funny, because Walt Mossberg stated in his review how long (up to 8-9 seconds) some apps take to open when there's already running apps!!!

App Store apps that can erase your contacts/emails?!

From the user experience, how is running multiple apps and then receiving an "out of memory" error = good usability?

I think a lot of these reviews fluff it a bit.
