Engadget has got their first hands on review of the Palm Pre. They seem to like it, alot. I think it’s a fantastic product, just need to get my hands onto some of it first. Check out the review here.
Today Apple officially announce the upcoming iphone OS 3.0. Was following a liveblog of the event and it’s going to be a winner. The new OS will bring along over 100 new features which includes cut/paste, MMS, stereo bluetooth, P2P gaming, multiply search “Spotlight” etc. The list is too long. Oh, don’t forget, voice navigation too but you will need 3rd party Maps. I can see TomTom and Garmin salivating. I have been holding back on getting an iphone as i love my N95 plus I already own an ipod touch but all these new feature is really pushing me. Come June, its either a new iphone (V3) or the Palm Pre. Can’t wait, time to save up some cash first.
If you haven’t heard by now, Palm have just announced their latest smartphone handset call “Pre”. One word, UNBELIEVABLE! Everyone in the world (including me) had doubts about Palm coming up with something great to challenge the already super crowded mobile market. But I think they did it, this is by far the most gizmo smartphone I have seen, even beating the iphone. Hardware wise, it’s got everything, bluetooth (Stereo), aGPS, Wifi, 3mb Camera, LED flash, touchscreen (multi-touch), nice form-factor. But the killer feature is actually the user interface, named WebOS , there’s nothing like it. It’s entirely based on webkit which means everyman and their dog who knows web programming can make an App for it. I don’t have time for details so you can check out all the hype regarding this phone (Try engadget or gizmodo). I think I’m in love again. Check out the official Palm Pre here.
