Pre could pilot Palm to smartphone glory again

By Edward C. Baig, USA TODAY

The most-lusted-after pocket computer in months is about to go on sale — and it's not even an iPhone. On Saturday, Palm and Sprint start selling the Palm Pre, a smartphone that stacks up well against Apple's blockbuster device, and in some ways even surpasses it.

Me!

I got one Saturday morning.

And truly, it's not a must-have, but a toy. I gave my wife my old Palm Centro, and she is giving our middle child her Samsung.

Essentially upgrading 3 phones is the only way I could even come close to justifying this.

But it is a nice toy.

I don't see the hype surrounding this phone. I'll be honest in saying I've not done my research on it, but I can't exactly see the "wow" factor. I mean, if it was a truly remarkable phone, it would have been a lot heavier marketed.

Or am I just talking nonsense? Does someone want to fill me in on it's awesomeness? =P

Edit: Having read a few articles and watching a few videos, I take the above statements back. It looks very, very cool!
