palmso a couple months back i had the opportunity to check out the new palm pre phone, which is launching this saturday.  if ever there was a phone that had the wherewithal to take on the iphone, this is it.  blending together the email functionality of a blackberry, and the entertainment and fluid design of an iphone, the pre is able to satisfy the consumer who falls somewhere in the middle.

there are a couple of kinks to work out: the battery runs out pretty quickly, some things take about 8-9 seconds to load, and its only available on sprint….for the first six months verizon has said that they will be carrying it soon as well (and everything else will be worked out with time).

oh, and did i mention that the phone itself and the operating costs are cheaper than that of the iphone?
