Despite Palm recording a net loss of $95 million dollars in Q3 2008, its CEO has dismissed rumours that the much anticipated Palm Pre is being delayed. The handset which was first showcased at CES in January, has built up a considerable fervour with many claiming that it will be a genuine contender for that much touted "iPhone killer" label we so often hear. The Palm Pre will be the first device to operate on the manufacturer's own WebOS operating system that promises to provide all your calendars, contacts and messaging applications into one "logical view."
The Palm Pre will also include Wi-Fi, HSDPA, onboard GPS, a three-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal memory and a 3.5mm headphone port. It will also sport a large 3.1-inch touch-screen and a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, while rumour is rife that it will be an O2 exclusive, which is somewhat surprising considering the operators links with the iPhone.
While it's reassuring to hear that the Palm Pre is on schedule, we'll have to make do with the broad claim that it will be available "sometime in Q2".
