I’m still studying all the information coming in about the new Palm webOS and Palm Pre phone.
It’s contradictory and nonsensical and I can’t make sense of any of it yet.
I do think it’s the first CloudPhone — and that would have been a better name for it than “Pre,” which Twitter wags have stated:
And while they did not announce any sexy mini-tablet, this is a Social OS, as I stated. And it is the axis around which the Internet revolves. It is a phone for the Nerdi.
I have absolutely no idea what app development for this will be like and so have no clue how this will impact on eBooks. We’ll have to see which developers announce support for it. Fictionwise/eReader, MobiPocket, Stanza? Hello?
