AT&T may get Palm Pre if FCC files are correct

I recently had a chance to play with the Palm Pre Plus for a bit and I actually liked the device pretty well. If it was on AT&T, I don’t think I would run out and switch to the Pre, but the device is a good choice for those on Verizon. Files spied over at the FCC are suggesting that AT&T may in fact be getting its own version of the Pre in May.

Hey, Premium Notebooks or Netbooks, Get the Basics Right!

Hey, Premium Notebooks or Netbooks, Get the Basics Right!

I wrote this column on the Nokia Booklet 3G which is, in my opinion, the most luxurious looking netbook on the market. And for its $600 ($299 with a pretty expensive 2 year AT&T contract) it sure as heck should be. The aluminum unibody design feels as solid as a freshly pumped up tire, and its brushed metal palm rest isn't only minimalistic but is also smooth on the hands. The plastic coated keys are soft to the touch and the higher 1280 by 720 resolution screen is sweet on the eyes. And don't forget the built in AT&T 3G that kept me connected as I wrote in different coffee shops around New York City.

Aesthetically the Booklet has got the goods, but performance wise not so much.  While  using the Booklet for the last week or so I had to get used to the netbook taking at least a minute to boot up Windows 7 Starter (thanks to its slow 4,200 rpm hard drive), and  stalling at times when trying to open an application or simply loading a Flash video (thanks to its sluggish Atom Z530 processor). The Booklet 3G is like the stereotypical blonde -- pretty but slow.

Palm Pre Review

Palm Pre Review

A lot can happen in five months. Announced to dropped jaws at CES back in January, the Palm Pre has captured attention in a way usually only Cupertino can. Tightly patrolled demos at intervening tradeshows have only added to the allure; now, on June 6th, it's Palm and Sprint's chance to see whether hype adds up to sales. SlashGear have been living, breathing and sleeping Pre for the past couple of weeks: read on for our full review.

It almost seems unnecessary to go over the Pre's hardware: it's been pored over since the CES launch. As well as the obvious things - the 3.1-inch 320 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, slide-out hardware QWERTY keyboard, multitouch strip under the display and 3-megapixel camera on the back - there's EVDO Rev.A, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a multitasking-capable processor lurking inside.
