CES 2009: palm pre

the smart phone market is a crowded one. it seems that almost every mobile device maker has at least one product in this marketplace, if not more. one of the early pioneers in the field, palm, slowly lost market share over time. in an effort to regain their place, palm launched their new ‘pre’ smart phone yesterday at CES. the device is a slick entry that goes head to head with the iphone, blackberry and similar devices. the product features a curvy touchscreen which measures 3.1 inches, however it also has a slide out keyboard for typing. like the iphone, the pre can be turned sideways and automatically switches into a widescreen mode. built in wifi, GPS, bluetooth and a 3 megapixel camera are all included. the major innovation in the palm pre is their all-new webOS platform, which is filled with powerful graphic and gesture-based interactions. additionally the device’s charger uses wireless power, a first in a mainstream device. the palm pre is set to launch early this year.
