Palm Pre Introduction Event at CES

My last bit of non-Macworld catch-up, I think. If you haven’t seen it yet, Palm’s introduction of the Pre is definitely worth watching. I’m impressed. Palm could be shaping back up into just the rival Apple needs.

I have more to say about the Pre, but the thing that struck me the most about it is that it’s a complete and utter break from all previous Palm software. No compatibility whatsoever — which, given just how decrepit the original Palm OS has become, is exactly what they needed to do. But credit to Palm for having the stones to do it.
