Image Gallery: Palm Pre device revealed in all its beautiful glory

Summary: Palm needed to blow us away with something today at CES 2009 and I think they did just that with the Palm Pre and Palm Web OS announcements. Palm just posted several device photos and screenshots that we have available for you to view in our image gallery.

There is no pricing information available yet and availability is a vague 1st half of 2009. As a person who has used every mobile OS, I think the Palm Pre just leapfrogged the Google Android and even the iPhone in many respects. Nokia and Microsoft better stand up straight and get something out in 2009 now as the entire mobile landscape will stay fragmented and exciting in 2009.

  • Wow!

    Very nice! The first serious iPhone competitor I've seen!

    • I agree, sorry Google

      This device looks a lot more polished than the Google Android OS and I am happy to see Palm raising the bar again.

  • SWEET!

    Now if they only made a GSM version, I'd be all over it like white on rice. Any word on if they're gonna make one for AT&T or T-Mo?

    What about other key features - like 3G? Wi-Fi? Bluetooth? Stereo Bluetooth?

    Details, man, DETAILS! Please!

    • See my earlier post, GSM version for sure

      I am 98% positive Palm will launch a GSM version because they need to reach the international market to succeed. We may even see a foreign carrier launch when Sprint brings it to the U.S. I also think we will see various styles (without the keyboard) in the future too.

      Please check out my earlier post with all the specs and details of the device. Yes, it has all the same wireless features as the rest of the high end devices available today.

  • Nice! Only two complaints

    1. Sprint :-(
    2. They continue to put the headphone jack on the bottom! This has always made it nearly impossible to dock a Treo and connect it to an external audio device (although the new plugless dock will make that less of an issue, but I wouldn't want to use that in a car!); why not on the side or top? At least they've finally gone to the 3.5 mm jack - eliminates the adapters.

    Also glad they went with the familiar Treo keyboard layout. I don't care for the landscape keyboards, where you have to turn the phone every time you want to type or text, and also have to use two hands; the smaller keyboard makes one-hand typing easy.

    Once it comes unlocked and with GSM, I'm there!

    • Sprint doesn't suck (anymore)

      I like Sprint service. Customer service used to suck but times do change.

      Full disclosure: I was a Sprint employee. I've had my share of customer service problems even as an employee, but it has turned around considerably.

      • Riiiiiight!

        I believe you. Sure I do. And, I'll take that bridge you're selling, too.

    slide shows on this site suck. Stop doing full page replacement and just download the slide image and any display text that goes with it and replace just those portions of the existing page. I absolutely cannot tolerate full page replace for something like slide show - which needs to be very fast to move between slides.
