All eyes were on Palm at this year's CES, as the rumor mill speculated about the announcement of its new operating system and the potential for a sneak peek at the first device to run the new OS. And Palm didn't disappoint, unveiling the Pre, a pretty, pint-sized smartphone and the first to run Palm's new webOS.
The 3G Palm Pre takes a stab at the Apple iPhone, with a large 3.1-inch touchscreen and full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The device uses Palm Synergy, which converges contacts into a single address book. The small smartphone can also run several applications at one time.
The Pre ties in Wi-Fi, GPS, 8 GB, a 3.1-megapixel camera with an LED flash and navigation.
The Pre will hit Sprint's network sometime in the first half of the year.
