Switched Asks, 'What's a Pre?'

We hit the streets to see how effectively Palm is getting its WebOS-based Palm Pre out there into the world. Perhaps it's the fault of some horrific advertising campaigns (e.g., the creepy 'New Age meets Renaissance Fair' wench, those painfully unfunny Verizon spots), but Palm's next-generation smartphone didn't get much recognition on the streets. Here's hoping HP can make Palm into a real cont...

HP to Purchase Palm to Revitalize its Smartphone Future

It's no secret that, despite garnering tons of hype, Palm's Web OS was simply too little and too late in the game to compete with smart phone powerhouses. Maybe it was the super creepy ads.

That means that Best Buy will be the only place other than Sprint where you'll find the Pre for purchase on US soil for the first 60 days af...

Palm Shows New Life With 'Pre' Smartphone

We'll be honest: We weren't expecting much from Palm this year. The company has been struggling of late to establish its identity in a sea of comprehensive handsets from the likes of HTC and, of course, Apple.
