The Palm Pre introduces a new platform called Palm webOS. It’s all about organizing your contacts and web connections under your thumb. Literally.
“Pre continues Sprint’s leadership in open access to the content customers want for a great web-connected experience,” said Dan Hesse, Sprint chief executive officer. “We look forward to bringing this remarkably innovative device to our customers on America’s most dependable 3G network.”
The new platform introduces Palm Synergy, a key feature of webOS that brings your information from all the places it resides into one logical view. You don’t have to worry about tracking multiple calendars, contacts and messaging applications – Synergy brings it to you for a more comprehensive and truly representative view of your life.
Synergy means you link contacts. If, over time, you have included the same people in your Outlook, Google and Facebook accounts, Synergy recognizes that they’re the same person and links the information, presenting it to you as one listing. No clumsy duplication. Plus updates done on the Palm Pre are automatically registered on the other accounts.
Palm Pre features include the following:
Right now the Palm works in the US, but for international customers there will be a world-ready (UMTS) version of the Palm Pre will be available in other regions worldwide. Keep checking the web sites for more info.
