Palm has announced the Palm pre today at CES, and of course Dieter was there live blogging for us. If you missed Dieter's live blogging, you can still check out all his comments here. Thanks for keeping us updated Dieter! You did an excellent job!!
The Palm pre is an egg-shaped device and is really cute. The pre is inspired by nature. Because of the egg-shape, the touchscreen is curvy. The pre has a gorgeous 3.1 inch 320x480 multitouch display. Yes! There's a rollerball below and the entire face has touch sensitivity. The multi-touch extends down to the "gesture area" below the display. The pre has an accelerometer, proximity, and ambient light. Plus it has extended depth of field capability. Did I mention it has EVDO? Yep, there's EvDO, Rev A, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth stereo, 8GB storage, and a fast processor.
