Will the Pre be the last in Palm's line of products, or will it mark the beginning of a new era for company? Here's a quick look at the devices Palm has created over the years.
Finally, the Pre
The Palm Pre is shaping up to be Palm's attempt to regain its former preeminence in the handheld universe.
Based on the completely new WebOS and featuring a slide-down hardware keyboard, a first-rate touchscreen, 8MB of internal storage (but no expansion slot), 3G (EvDO) and multitasking support, and intriguing integration with web applications and services such as Facebook and Google, the Pre is the most innovative Palm product in more than five years (which is an eternity for a smartphone manufacturer).
But will it be enough to battle the iPhone juggernaut (and to stave off competition from BlackBerry and Android)? We'll have to wait and see.
