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...

Nope, Palm no longer owns any BeOS intellectual property, that has all been transferred to ACCESS.
