Palm is focused on creating instinctive yet powerful mobile products that enable people to better manage extraordinary lives on the go. Their goal is to deliver products that implement technology in a truly useful way.
Palm has unleashed its latest release on June 6 2009- Palm Pre, a Smartphone that is designed according to our life style. The Pre incorporates a 3.1-inch touchscreen over a highly resolution HVGA liquid crystal display. The touchscreen permits for manipulation of the UI with fingers instead of a stylus that is commonly used in older Palm phones and PDAs. Below the display is the Gesture Area, a touch-sensitive area with LED under lighting that allows additional touch commands.
The Pre also features a full QWERTY keyboard which is similar other recent Palm phones. On the Pre, the keyboard slides out, and is curved to follow the outline of the human face. In addition to the keyboard, the mobile features a single button in the center of the Gesture Area, a volume rocker switch on the side and a ringer switch on the top.
The Pre features three input sensors that allow it to respond to its surroundings. An accelerometer will automatically change the orientation of the display between landscape and portrait when the device is rotated in the user’s hands. A surrounding light sensor allows the Pre to automatically adjust the brightness of its display. A proximity sensor allows the Pre to disregard touch inputs when the phone is held close to a user’s face during a call. The Pre also has an integrated 3 megapixel digital camera with LED flash.
Palm Pre is making a huge impact for those who love to have a stylish handset and makes an impressive foot-mark in the global market with some high standard features.
