Palm Unveils The Palm Pre And Web OS At CES 2009

palm prePalm unveiled the Palm Pre handheld during its press conference at CES 2009. Featuring the company’s new Web OS, the Pre is a sexy slider that will be available exclusively through Sprint in the first half of 2009.

Aimed at the general audience, the new platform is specially designed for easy and intuitive use, combined with many opportunities. Developers have started work on it literally from the white sheet, so do not expect to see the existing style of Palm, but rather something new and (hopefully) better. Judging by the large color icons, we can definitely conclude that the new proposal would be in line with the 2009th.
Palm, however, mentioned that work on the GSM version, so we hope she can come up soon!
