New Palm Pre

submitted on June 8, 2009 by shawndiaz in "Products / Gadgets"
Just looking over this phone. Unfortunately I am nowhere near a Sprint store, so I cannot see this in person, but a nice web demo is here:
Has anyone seen this or even waited in line over the weekend for it yet? What are your takes on the new device that claims it is "not competing with the iPhone"?

Also, a nice way to charge the device:,00.asp

    Is it the one that simulates clicking sound when you touch the screen?

    Not sure about that one. I know the Blackberry Storm does. Here's an excerpt from Phonescoop on the touch screen:
    The Pre uses a capacitive touch screen. In the time I've used the device, I've found it to be a little finicky. Perhaps as much as 20-25% of the time it doesn't accurately register screen presses, necessitating a second press. This gets old (with any phone). It works better than resistive touch phones, especially when it comes to scrolling. (Lightly swiping your finger across a capacitive screen is always easier than dragging while applying pressure on a resistive screen.)

    There does not appear to be any way to calibrate or test the screen's accuracy. There is no haptic feedback.
