James Kendrick wrote, "The Palm Pre must give as good a browsing
experience or better as the iPhone or it may fall short in the consumer
space." This could happen because videos show the web browsing is very
fast, and remember the Palm Pre 's WebOS is built in Webkit, the operative words here are "web."

In a Palm Pre
face off against other smartphones the Palm Pre is the only smartphone
to have checked next to the "Universal Search" option, searching on the
Palm Pre . When you start typing to begin searching your contacts, applications,
Google, or even Wikipedia. Universal search narrows down the possible
results as you type, so it's easier to find what you need.
Google maps is intergrated into this function.
With all these great features, it's really ashame that the Palm Pre is expected to be in short supply when it comes out. If you attempt to buy the Palm Pre without a contract it will cost you $849 at Best Buy.
