    Great ad!

    I like how Palm has decided not to be like Apple and do the voice over and instead be their own company with a hip fast style.

    Music is great Mos Def deserve so much more exposure than he gets!

    They made the old Pre commercial girl (borg queen/vampire girl/creepy chick/&c) look creepy, but in actuality she was pretty hot. Search for "tamara hope." That's her name.

    Ok, that's much better Maybe searching for a daycare then finding it on google maps followed by streaming Pandora through her car speakers to calm down before she takes off driving. I can see that in a commercial.


    Just an FYI DougFNJ Autism is very close to my heart, I will be donating on the 20th. It's a shame how little the general public knows about it.

    i'm trying to figure out where they filmed this. I used to work in the city of LA and was feeling nostalgic. I thought it was Grand and 5th, but thats not it per google maps street view. I guess I don't know how to read those street signs.

    Another crap commercial from Palm. Explain nothing. Be too creative & cute. Add another annoying song and done.

    Simply amazing how they continue to screw up what should be pretty simple. I have to wonder about those who think this is good..

    Would you prefer a voice over showing how they can play a game and be on a call at the same time... Oh wait, apple did that already... How about one where they voice over about taking a video then sending it via MMS... Oh yeah, apple did that too... What exactly should they explain in this commercial? Short of copying apple directly or turning it into an infomercial it does what it needs to do. It shows practical use of the phone in a real world situation with catchy tunes. It's what Palm needs to increase awareness.

    Annoying song, really? I liked the whole thing. At a minimum its a big step in the right direction. The only thing I might have done differently is maybe have the entire screen in the end fade to the screen on a Pixi or Pre showing the whole device. That would link it to how the commercial started with the device. Later, you could cut out the end and swap it for whatever new phone comes out in the Summer. However, I liked it. I'm qst4 and I approve of this commercial!

    What? What kinda crazy talk is that? Doing an esoteric, cool, music-driven commercial worked the first time with the monks, right? Then, it worked with the incredible Pixi ads with the Chipmunk voice too, right? So it is definitely bound to work again so the Pre and Pixi will continue on their stratospheric sales driven by all of the people who don't need anything explained to them.

    Why on earth would Palm want to have narration explaining the features of the phone like in the iPhone and Droid commercials? Those products flopped due to the horrible marketing that wasn't laden with cool music and high concepts. It only makes sense for Palm ads to be as different from those totally ineffective Droid and iPhone ads, and more like the iconic...well you get the message.

    And I'm so glad they spent a full third of the commercial on the most unique and emblematic WebOS app....Google Maps! I mean, if anything would cause you to leave iPhone, Blackberry, or Android...even a featurephone...it'd be seeing a handset with Google Maps. I mean, it's the fastest launching WebOS app, too.

    Basically, you don't know what you talking about, cardfan.

    We should all hope for a Palm Does ad, or a voice over narrative ad because until then no one is going to be pleased.

    I like the ad, the reason being, it looks as if the Pre and Pixi will not be the only phones that Palm will be seling this year. There is talk about C40 and perhaps a keyboardless phone.

    The unifing thread thru all of it is webOS and the name PALM!

    Seeing the apps on the TV screen gives the viewer a better look than shooting a close up of the screen.

    LOL: What do you want the phone to say Norma Desmond's line from Sunset Blvd, "I'm Ready for my close up Mr. DeMill?"

    Of your entire post, this is the only thing I agree with.

    I can't wait to have a phone like that. With holograms, face recognition and hand tracking.

    That commercial kicks ars! If Palm would have used those from the start.. these debates wouldn't be happening. Instead.. we would be celebrating world domination!

    lol..
