Palm Pre's webOS 'offers all-round fun'

19 June 2009 — 5:00 PM

The Palm Pre could be available on O2 soon.

In a piece for Mobile Burn this week, Michael Oryl takes a look at the eagerly anticipated Palm Pre - seen by many as the company's last chance at getting a foot back in the market.

One of the highlights of the device is the new webOS software platform, which the review states proves it is not only the Apple iPhone 3G which can offer a user interface that looks good and is fun to use.

"With webOS, Palm has thrown down the gauntlet and it is time for the rest of the industry to react," he adds.

However, Mr Oryl goes on to say there are some issues with the phone that leaves it lacking - such as a small catalogue of downloadable applications and a keyboard that "displeases a lot of people", but concludes by giving it a recommended rating.

The Palm Pre is expected to arrive on the O2 network later this year.
