Pre Community Q&A with Sprint and Palm

Pre Community Q&A with Sprint and Palm

Pre Community is certainly getting a lot of time near the Pre, it seems – the site has now posted the write-up from a Q&A with Sprint and Palm executives.  Pre Community also states at the end of the post that a video of the Q&A is “coming soon”.

Here are a few interesting tidbits from the writeup.  First off, Palm went on the record to say that, while their OS wouldn’t be a wide open free-for-all, they would be “flexible”.  When asked about a possible Palm OS emulator, Palm stated that, while they had no plans to develop one themselves, they’d allow a third party to do so.

Palm had nothing to say when asked about YouTube or Flash support on the Pre.  They also would not confirm the supplier of their touch panel.  Palm conceded that they could have gone with a larger display – however, they wanted to maintain the device’s one-handed operation.

The entire writeup is an interesting read, and I personally can’t wait to see the video, which is expected to post sometime soon.  To read the rest of the article, jump over to Pre Community.
