Palm Pre Hands On Video Part I

The following is part one of an ongoing series of Palm Pre videos. In this video, you’ll see "cards" on the Palm Pre. The webOS supports multi-tasking. Pressing the home button on the Pre will reveal all your open applications in "cards". You can keep these open and they are actually live. For example, you can have a video playing in one card and then move to another card that has a browser working. Multiple cards did not slow down or hinder the performance of the Palm Pre in any way. Cards on the Palm Pre were one of the more innovative features of webOS. Stay tuned for our continuing coverage of the Palm Pre. Plenty more hands on videos of the device in action and first impressions. Please feel free to ask questions about the Palm Pre in our Palm Pre forums. Not a member? Register today.

Palm Pre Hands On Video Part II: Hardware Preview

Peter Skillman, VP of Industrial Design for Palm, walks through the elements of hardware design on the Palm Pre. From the hardware to the packaging, Palm’s mantra with the Pre was "no detail is too small". Speaking of the packaging, the Palm Pre packaging is similar to the Treo Pro. Like the Palm Pre, it’s small and it’s "green". Skillman also demos the Touchstone accessory that allows you to charge the Palm Pre without having to plug it in. Simply drop the Palm Pre on the Touchstone and it starts charging.
