Palm Post Pre28 May 2009
A really interesting interview at All Things Digital with two people responsible for the Pre. It should be important to note that Palm appears to be betting the farm on the Pre. They're really trying to reinvent their business based mostly on the success of the iPhone. The device even piggy backs on iTunes, which is clever because user interface does not mean user experience.
“It’s so rare to be able to start with a blank sheet of paper and start over. And we were given a blank sheet of paper with the device and the OS. … The old Palm OS lasted 15 years but had run its course. We set out to develop a platform that will last us another 10 or 15 years.”
The big question is what will the reception be like?
