Best Cell Phone
The Palm Pre isn't just Palm's saving grace. This brand new smart phone for Sprint offers an innovative new WebOS that's fully integrated with the internet. That means your e-mail, calendar, Web pages, and contacts all update as needed whenever any related information has changed online. And the new operating system is made up entirely of Web languages like HTML, CSS, and Java Script so developers and partners like Facebook and Amazon can quickly create new applications and content for the device. Speaking of Amazon, it has already been announced as a partner for the Pre's on-board DRM free music store.
The phone thinks like you do: cards on the home screen each represent an active task, when you're finished with a program, just flick it away by gesturing across the multitouch display. There's also a dedicated gesture area below the screen for quickly accessing your most used tasks or flipping through open cards on the desktop.
Moreover, if you're trying to search for something, simply start typing. If the search terms aren't on your device, the Pre will bring up a menu to search through Google, Wikipedia, or in Google Maps. The 3MP camera (no video recording, though), Wi-Fi support, a colorful and crisp 3.1 inch display, and a full 3.5mm headphone jack are just the icing on the cake.
