We have a confession to make: There are a few Palm fans among us. Back
in the day, you would have had to pry the grayscale Palm IIIx out of
our cold, dead, extremely well-organized hands. But Palm lost its
way--and we went back to our paper calendar for a while. With the Pre,
Palm is taking its flagging brand in a new direction. And while it has
adopted many of the multitouch gestures popularized by the iPhone, the
Pre also adds a fair amount of its own special sauce.
