Looks like I have to get a new phone! The Palm Pre:
An iPhone with a real keyboard. Thank you thank you thank you.
Many analysts said Palm had to hit a home run. Looks like they did. From Ryan Block: "Wow. Well, that was kind of amazing, and I don’t say that very often. Yes, we are lacking a LOT of really important details, but there’s little doubt that Palm is back in a big way, and that this OS and device has the potential to make up for all their missteps over the last five years. Can’t wait." Me either. Yay!
[ Update: I'm reading the details; wild stuff like the 3.1" multitouch screen, the wireless charger, the rollerball, EVDO, WiFi, GPS, bluetooth, 3Mp camera (w LED flash), all in a little handheld device, and I'm thinking, "I can actually have one of these". It might be $500, but it won't be $5M. This isn't just science fiction, this is a consumer product. What a great time to be alive! ]
