The First Palm Pre Review

By  |  Friday, May 29, 2009 at 1:39 pm

Palm PreThe Boy Genius Report has seen, touched, and tried a pre-release Palm Pre, and published its findings. It’s a long piece with a bunch of photos, but the Pre has been so thoroughly previewed in so many venues that it doesn’t tell us much we didn’t already know. BGR’s verdict? Uninspiring hardware (the keyboard is said to be too small to be pleasing, and the case kind of plasticky) but sensational operating system (although not much software was on the device).

The Pre hits stores on June 6th, so look for gazillions of reviews shortly.

    Open letter to Palm Pre product manager:

    I have been a palm user since its inception.

    I think you did a huge mistake by not including
    Palm Desktop and local sync. for Palm Pre.

    As a hardcore fan I suggest changing your plan and commit to support
    a desktop sync. mechanism for Pre (ideally with Palm Desktop).

    Then publicly announce the plan and quickly allocation resources
    to get that done as soon as possible.

    It will cost you losing the battle to rivals if you don’t act quickly.

    – A disappointed fan!
