CES 2009: Palm shows off rumoured touchscreen device – the Palm Pre

Share

palm-pre-ces.jpgThe rumours were true. Palm’s got a brand new device to go with its spangly new Nova operating system. All we knew previously was that it had a portrait touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but now there’s a bit more info to go with it.

That touchscreen measures 3.1″ diagonally, at 480×320 resolution. The slide-out keyboard doesn’t come straight out – it sorta curves. There’s oodles of connectivity – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and EVDO. There’s a removable battery, 8GB of storage, microUSB connector, 3-megapixel camera, a nifty-looking wireless charger and – YAY! – a 3.5mm headphone jack.

It’s running the new Nova OS, but more about that in another post. It’ll be available in the “first half” of 2009. In the meantime, for more CES coverage, click here.

EDIT: Palm’s launched a website for the device and OS.
