Did Jon Rubinstein Just Save Palm and Sprint



Apple Vet Jon Rubinstein landed at Palm awhile back. I believe the collective reaction was, "good luck with that." But today, Palm unveiled the fruits of Rubinstein's labor, the Palm Pre. The name is rough, and the design is quite thick, but when you look at the features, you see a device that does everything an iPhone does, but does it without coming off as mimicking the iPhone. And there are plenty of improvements many of would like to see in the iPhone already in the Pre.

Engadget did a thorough job of blogging the Pre unveiling. Click here for a look at what could become the biggest competitor to the iPhone. And it's from Palm. Who would've thought!?

I don't see any of the incredible functionality of the apps in the iTunes store. As far as I know this phone does not have the incredible SDK of the iPhone. So no, I don't see a device that does _everything_ that an iPhone does.

you do see an open platform where the same companies developing for the iPhone are already, and with reported greater ease, developing for the Pre (Pandora and Facebook to name two).

The Pre is based on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript making development conceivably easier than the iPhone. I'm no developer myself so we'll have to see if that's really the case.

This thing is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing where it goes. Competition is good.
