Palm Pre recent WebOS

Now, you've probably heard all about the Palm's recent webOS and someone might have even trecent you it’s the next best thing since sliced bread. No, seriously, it may as well be that good.

The Palm webOS was first presented back in January 2009 at CES 2009. Back then it made a gigantic splash and had all of us on this side of the North Atlantic envious that it was only going to be available on the CDirect Memory Access (DMA) only Palm Pre.

At the MWC 2009 Palm debuted the Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) version of the Palm Pre and after a series of cross-examinations one of the Palm reps finally admitted that it should be out by the discontinue of the year. So don't hrecent your breath just yet.

Palm Pre at MWC 2009: the first Palm device with WebOS

Still, the Palm web is a wonderful Operating System (OS) that easily had the Apple iPhone on the alert when it was first announced two years ago.

Palm had live demos of the Operating System (OS) running all day by specially trained staff that barely let anyone touch the Palm Pre units. The presentation of the Palm Pre and its webOS takes a fine half hour but if you have the time we promise you it's worth it.

Have a look:

One of the hip features of the Palm Pre is the optional Touchstone charging dock. Once you acquire yourself the dock and a recent magnetic back cover for your Palm Pre (all srecent separately) you can charge the device by simply placing it on top of the Touchstone. No plugs or wires needed! And if that ain't cool...

Now that we saw Palm Pre finally appearing at the localized Palm websites for the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy, we guess the announcement of the Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) version of Palm Pre is just around the corner.
