I tweeted about it, big surprise, and got deluged by questions and requests to talk about my experience.
I didn’t realize until I started talking about it that so many of the other previews and demos were hands-off.
We did get to play with the Palm Pre, not enough for my tastes but of course my tastes lean towards someone handing me a phone and me going off into a corner to play with it for a week. And then getting to keep it (not so subtle hint repeated below).
The most recently leaked release date I’ve seen is June 5th for the US, but it won’t be here until the second half of 2009.
And in case someone from Palm is reading this, I would LOVE to road test the Pre in Canada for you. Call me. [insert hand gesture here]
