Angelina Jolie Likes the Palm Pre More Than the iPhone?



We wonder how the folks over at Palm reacted after the LA Gossip Examiner reported that Angelina Jolie liked the Palm Pre more than the iPhone. We imagine the entire staff popped champagne and danced around like silent ravers.

Even though almost no one else seems to have been given free-roaming access over the device, Ms. Jolie has allegedly been using the Pre (which is not yet available to the public) on the set of her new movie 'Salt,' and recently got into a discussion about the phone after a male production assistant inquired about it. According to the assistant, Jolie "likes the software better than the iPhone, she likes the thumboard [sic] for texting (although the keys aren't big enough), and thinks the screen is beautiful but can be too easily scratched." That is pretty high praise from one of Hollywood's highest-profile female stars.

The Pre has already seen its fare share of hype, and this organic, unprovoked celebrity endorsement will certainly do nothing to lower expectations. [From: LA Gossip Examiner, Via: Business Insider]
