Here’s a first look at the new Palm Pre, built on open source platform, sorta like Android.
It looks really good but time will tell how many hackers and developers will catch onto Palm’s open source platform. There’s no word if it’s based on Linux or proprietary, in which case it will be a hard sell.
I highly like the screen very much. Well, watch the video!
The video is one of the most complete demonstrations of the Pre that we’ve seen to date, showing app to app transitions without the covert tinkering Palm execs had to do with their pre-production devices at CES last month. In it, you can see the calendar, contacts, Synergy linking of information from Microsoft Exchange, GMail and various social networks, browser and more.
