Palm Pre Videos

Who would have imagined that Palm would be the one to introduce the first post-iPhone device that actually looks sexy? Well, it’s easier when you poach as many engineers from Apple as you can, but still, I never thought the good old Palm was able to innovate again.

The interface looks very well designed; Jobs must be double-pissed that WebOS doesn’t just use WebKit to display web pages but for everything; I love that the touch area extends beyond the screen (it’s a shame Apple didn’t think of that for the iPhone); the wireless docking station is a nice bonus.

But they intend to price it higher than the iPhone — as they need to, because they don’t have Apple’s deep pockets and economies of scale — and they don’t stand a chance.
