I blogged a while ago about how Palm is still hanging in there when it comes to devices and users in the smart phone game.
They recently upped the ante with the preview of their latest phone, called the “Pre” – which may be the worst name yet for a phone.
But – this phone has some great fatures. Namely, 8 gigs of storage, and it supports Adobe Flash. Oh, and a 3 megapixel camera (with a flash to boot). And, it has better multimedia messaging than the iPhone. Very cool.
But the best part – the OS. Yep, this baby runs on Linux. And this fact, according to Palm, is that users can have 15 apps open at a time, without it crashing. Users of Windows Mobile and the iPhone will understand how big of a deal that is.
The downside – the phone looks like it is going to be a Sprint exclusive. So, one of the coolest gadgets on what some say the worst network for customer service. Great…
What I do like, if you check the link above, is that Palm is enabling interested customers to sign up online to get an email when the Pre is available. This is smart thinking. Not only does it enable people to feel like they matter, but it will better enable Palm to build the right amount of phones to meet demand. In this economy, proper sourcing is huge…
Is this the real iPhone killer?
