5 June 2009
  • Conclusion: A most excellent start from Palm with their first new Web OS smartphone. The hardware is attractive and the Pre looks great, feels great (albeit slippery and fingerprint-y) and is smaller than the iPhone and many other touch screen smartphones.
  • Pros: Lovely new OS, fantastic looking capacitive touch screen, attractive, pocketable., Excellent capacitive touch screen that's vibrant. The OS is easy and fun to use with lots of eye candy.

Palm Pre

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: Palm’s near death experience has had an impressive effect. The revitalised company hasn’t just updated its PDA for the twenty-first century, it has crafted a fun, practical and drop-dead gorgeous smartphone that stands close comparison with Apple’s iPhone.
