Palm Pre Pics, Specs: the Charger is Semi-Adhesive!

Palm Pre

Excitement continues over the Palm Pre at CES. While many people appear to be leaving the show early on day one, those that remain are still talking about the Pre. Palm generously invited us to their VIP Lounge for a closer look, so we’re sharing the portfolio of pictures. Unfortunately, like many areas of CES, the lighting is sub-par, so bear with us as we gave it our best effort. We’ll be sharing some thoughts later. For now, be sure to check the pics of the charger. The back of it is semi-adhesive so you can stick it on something and the Pre will then stick to it.

 

Here’s the quick run-down of specs we received from Palm as well. I think many of them will sound veeeeerrrrry familar in terms of the functionality:

  • High-speed connectivity (EVDO Rev. A or UMTS HSDPA)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
  • Integrated GPS
  • Large 3.1-inch touch screen with a vibrant 24-bit color 320×480 resolution HVGA display
  • Gesture area, which enables simple, intuitive gestures for navigation
  • Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • Email, including Outlook EAS (for access to corporate Microsoft Exchange servers), as well as personal email support (POP3, IMAP)
  • Robust messaging support (IM, SMS and MMS capabilities)
  • High-performance, desktop-class web browser
  • Great multimedia experience and performance (pictures, video playback, music), featuring a 3-megapixel camera with LED flash and extended depth of field, and a standard 3.5mm headset jack
  • Bluetooth(R) 2.1 + EDR with A2DP stereo Bluetooth support
  • 8GB of internal user storage (~7.4GB user available)
  • USB mass storage mode
  • MicroUSB connector with USB 2.0 Hi-Speed
  • Proximity sensor, which automatically disables the touch screen and turns off the display whenever you put the phone up to your ear
  • Light sensor, which dims the display if the ambient light is dark, such as at night or in a movie theater, to reduce power usage
  • Accelerometer, which automatically orients web pages and photos to your perspective
  • Ringer switch, which easily silences the device with one touch
  • Removable, rechargeable battery
  • Dimensions: 59.57mm (W) x 100.53mm (L, closed) x 16.95mm (D) [2.35 inches (W) x 3.96 inches (L, closed) x 0.67 inches (D)]
