Palm Pre out in the market


As a Palm owner I am pleased to see yet another Palm product out in the market, this time, a smartphone that was dubbed by techies as the "iPhone killer". Ladies and gentlemen, Palm Pre is here! Now, the world consists of two people, the iPhone fanboys and the rest of the world. I'm not against those iPhone owners (except those who own one but it wasn't them who paid for it. spoiled brats!) but will the iPhone hype finally end here? Will the Palm Pre reign supreme with its new WebOS and Touchstone technology bundled with its app store? The answer is in the hands of the consumer (me and you duh!).
