PALM PRE OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED IN US. PALM PRE REVIEW, SPECIFICATION, NEWS, PRICE AND VIDEO - THE IPHONE KILLER NOW IS THE BEST SMARTPHONE AND HOTTEST BEST BUY.

 

The Palm Pre has officially gone on sale in Sprint, Best Buy, Radio Shack and Wal-Mart stores across the United States.

Tipped to become the most successful touchscreen iPhone-challenger yet, the Pre has enjoyed a warm response from critics and consumers alike.

As such, it’s widely expected to become the first phone to at least come close to living up to an ‘iPhone-killer’ billing.

What’s more, Palm has enabled electromagnetic induction charging in the Pre – a method of charging the battery without the need to plug the device into anything.

Anyone who buys the Pre can use this functionality by purchasing Palm’s Touchstone wireless charger, which went on sale ahead of the Pre handset launch last week.

Ground breaking interface

Another of the most innovative features is the ‘Cards’ system. Using the centre button at the foot of the device, users can see a full set of all the open windows, and either flick through them or ‘throw’ them up the screen to discard.

KEYPAD: unlike the iPhone, the Palm Pre has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard

The Palm Pre also features a gesture zone where users can swipe around to navigate through applications, or drag up the menu loader to access a full range of applications.

iPhone-like interaction

It’s also similar to the Apple iPhone in that it features a sexy multi-touch screen, meaning the familiar ‘pinch to zoom’ functionality present in the iPhone has finally made its way to another portable device.

It’s the kind of slick, innovative interface we haven’t seen since the iPhone came out – and that’s what has caused the biggest stir.

A UK launch date for the Palm Pre has not yet been confirmed, but word is that it’ll be an O2 exclusive, and will be available before the end of the year

Palm Pre reviews :from around the web
The American media goes Pre-crazy over this year’s hottest handset

 
The praise for the Palm Pre has been slightly less hysterical than the pre-release hype. America has gone Palm Pre crazy today, as the much-anticipated iPhone-like handset finally went on sale across the country.

Palm Pre review articles are already popping up on US websites – many of which are slightly less positive than expected.

There’s also been some bad news for people wishing to buy the Pre on launch day. Early reports suggest that there are not enough Palm Pre handsets out here to meet demand, with some people leaving Sprint, Walmart and Best Buy stores empty handed.

The wireless Touchstone charger – which enables users to charge the Pre without plugging it in to anything – is said to be an even rarer commodity.

The early sales rush is down to the Pre garnering unprecedented amounts of hype and praise from all-comers, ever since it was announced at CES in January.

Early Palm Pre reviews have been positive – but many people are saying the Pre does not live up to its billing as a genuine iPhone killer.

The Engadget Palm Pre review was an overall positive one: “Just like the iPhone’s notches up the ladder, and the G1’s contributions, the Pre moves the game forward in a very real way.

“We know this won’t be the last of the webOS devices, and we know that as Palm improves its products, so will Apple, RIM, Microsoft, Google, and the rest of the smartphone gang. Unfortunately for them, their work just got a little bit tougher.”

And Gizmodo says that the Palm Pre’s screen is “the best multitouch screen” they’ve ever seen, but was slightly more reserved when giving its final verdict:

“The Pre,” it says, “may have hardware that’s worse than the G1/G2, but the whole package—the software and the hardware—isn’t bad. It’s good. It’s different. That’s something we can get behind. I can’t wait to see what Palm gets dealt in their next hand.”

But Wired US questioned the Pre’s battery life, stating that in its review that the Pre typically can only manage a day’s usage:

“A morning’s worth of heavy use may leave the Pre powerless by afternoon. I’ve been testing the Pre for less than a week, and typically, the battery meter hits the red zone before sunset,” its review says.

And the Wall Street Journal said it thinks the Pre is a brilliant phone – but that it still has some improving to do:

“All in all, I believe the Pre is a smart, sophisticated product that will have particular appeal for those who want a physical keyboard. It is thoughtfully designed, works well and could give the iPhone and BlackBerry strong competition — but only if it fixes its app store and can attract third-party developers.”

The New York Times Palm Pre review meanwhile, was similarly sceptical, saying that while the Pre is a promising handset, it’s still no iPhone killer:

“The Pre will be a hit, but the iPhone isn’t going away. First of all, Apple’s lead of 20 million phones will only grow when the new iPhone 3.0 software (and, presumably, a third iPhone model) come out shortly.

“[It also] has its annoyances. Opening certain programs can be very slow — sometimes eight or nine seconds — and there’s no progress bar or hourglass to let you know that it’s still working.”

And the tech-experts at CNET US give the Pre 3.5 stars out of 5, citing performance niggles as the main reason for a disappointing score

“Despite some missing features and performance issues that make it less than ideal for on-the-go professionals, the Palm Pre offers gadget lovers and consumers well-integrated features and unparalled multitasking capabilities. The hardware could be better, but more importantly, Palm has developed a solid OS that not only rivals the competition but also sets a new standard in the way smartphones handle tasks and manage information.”

And finally, USA Today says that the Pre could pilot Palm to smartphone glory:

“The first Palm Pre will certainly give the iPhone and other rivals a run for their money. To be sure, there are areas where it could improve: Bring on the apps.

“But Palm has delivered a device that will keep it in the game and give it a chance to star in it.”

PALM PRE VIDEO OFFICAL PROMO

palm pre news:

June 7 (Bloomberg) — Palm Inc.’s Pre sold out within hours at some stores after Sprint Nextel Corp. released the touch- screen phone yesterday, as pent up demand from months of waiting met with limited supplies.

Some Best Buy stores reported having as few as three phones on hand. Jennifer Fritzsche, an analyst at Wachovia Securities Inc., said Chicago-area Sprint stores received 30 to 50 of the devices, and some locations expected new shipments by June 10.

“I’m not finding the Pres. They’ve sold out everywhere,” said Fritzsche, who rates Sprint shares “market perform” and doesn’t own any. “It can actually help them because they’re creating more of a buzz.”

Customers have been waiting since January for the Pre, touted as the biggest competitor yet to Apple Inc.’s iPhone. The stores have started waiting lists for customers who can’t get the device immediately, said Karen Paletta, manager for Sprint’s Northeast stores. Palm and Sprint, reeling from customer losses and sales declines, have seen shares surge this year in anticipation of the smart phone’s debut.

The Palm Pre price $199 with a two-year contract and mail-in rebate, has an operating system that combines calendars, contacts and messages from different accounts. It synchronizes with Apple’s iTunes music store and has a screen that lets users zoom in and flip through applications without closing them.

Sprint, the third-largest U.S. wireless operator, has exclusive rights to the Pre through at least the end of the year. Larger rivals Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc. have said they are also interested in carrying the phone.

Waiting List

Sprint’s store on Mission Street in San Francisco sold out of its allotment of 60 Pre phones within two hours, manager Daniel Chan said. The outlet started a waiting list and will get its next consignment in a few days, he said. About half the people who bought the Pre already owned an iPhone, he said.

Misha Vladimirskiy, a 30-year-old photographer from San Francisco, is on that waiting list and was told he should get his Pre in five days.

“I don’t mind waiting,” said Vladimirskiy, whose last three phones were from Palm. “This is 1,000-times better than the Treo.”

Sprint isn’t disclosing how many retailers sold out or when new supplies may come in from Palm, spokesman Mark Elliott said yesterday.

Palm may sell about 150,000 Pre phones this weekend, Lawrence Harris, an analyst at CL King & Associates, said in an interview. Piper Jaffray & Co.’s Michael Walkley puts the number at almost 200,000. New York-based Harris rates Palm “neutral” and Walkley, in Minneapolis, advises clients to buy the stock. Paul Coster, an analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York, estimates weekend sales of more than 50,000.

Reputation at Stake

Palm aims to win back customers for smart phones, a market it helped create, after devices from Apple and Research In Motion Ltd. prevailed with newer features and operating systems. Palm hired retired iPod chief Jon Rubinstein in 2007 to develop the Pre.

Palm’s annual sales haven’t grown since 2006. Analysts say they will continue to drop the next two quarters, even with the Pre, according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Venture capital firm Elevation Partners has invested $425 million in Palm and owns about a third of the company.

“For Palm, what’s at stake is its reputation,” said Andy Castonguay, a research director at Yankee Group in Boston. “This is, I think, without exaggeration, a fundamental step forward if the company is going to continue to be relevant.”

Palm fell 64 cents to $13 in Nasdaq Stock Market trading on June 5. Sprint rose 8 cents to $5.11 on the New York Stock Exchange. Apple climbed 93 cents to $144.67 on the Nasdaq and has gained 70 percent this year.

Smart-Phone Summer

Sprint, based in Overland Park, Kansas, is rolling out new devices, possibly including one based on Google Inc.’s Android operating system, to win back customers after losing more than 4 million contract subscribers in the past year.

Pre buyers need to sign up for Sprint’s Simply Everything plans, which include unlimited data and messaging and start at $69.99 a month. AT&T Inc. charges iPhone users the same amount without messaging, according to the companies’ Web sites. The Pre is also available at RadioShack Corp. and some Wal-Mart Stores Inc. locations.

Carriers are pushing smart phones, which bring in extra data revenue as customers pay for Web access and messaging, to tap into one of the last areas of growth in the wireless market. The devices made up 23 percent of U.S. phone sales last quarter, up from 17 percent a year earlier, according to researcher NPD Group Inc. in Port Washington, New York.

‘About Time’

Sprint and Palm aren’t alone in releasing new phones. The Pre’s debut coincides with Apple’s annual developers’ conference. Cupertino, California-based Apple has said it will unveil a new operating system for the iPhone this week. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs has demonstrated a new version of the iPhone the past two years at the conference. Apple declined to comment, said Steve Dowling, a company spokesman.

Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. mobile company, has said it has new BlackBerrys from Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM, as well as an Android phone in its lineup.

“I’ve been a Sprint customer forever,” said Beverly Durham, a 51-year-old insurance claims adjuster from Pasadena, California, who had lined up outside a neighborhood store before 8 a.m. “It’s about time Sprint came out with a new phone.”
