Palm’s Pre is one of the most awaited phones of the year. Rumor has it that the phone will be launched on 30th of April and users like me just can’t wait to get one.
In the meanwhile Palm is trying to keep the buzz running by releasing demo videos on regular intervals. The latest ones show two new apps 1) for booking movie tickets and 2) for booking flights which also tracks flight schedule once booked. [Watch the video here]
One thing which is very common and strongly visible in all the videos we have see so far is how Pre is flaunting its ability to run background applications. This is what is missing on iPhone and is one of the most requested features from the iPhone user base.Pre hitting under the belt? Looks like it!
Most of the exciting technology and features we have seen in Pre demo videos are made possible by the ability of running background apps. This not only lets you keep on top of several things at once but it creates a seamless environment for using and sharing data between several applications for richer user experience.
This is exactly why users are looking forward to owning a Pre.. I picked up a quote from a forum where a users is ready to buy a Pre for each member of the family.
I have been trading PALM stock for the last couple of days and well I have made more than enough to pay for a new Palm Pre. Thank you PALM! Now if I can just get you to release the phone. I have my money and I’m more than ready to spend it. Made enough to buy the whole family Palm Pre’s as well. Looking for an really early christmas present. [link]
