Top 12 Apps for the Palm Pre Smartphone

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Even before the Palm Pre made its debut on June 6, tech critics from major publications offered generally positive reviews of the device. Specifically, many cited the appealing design, easy-to-use multitouch interface, and the Palm OS. At the same time, some reviews pointed out the relatively weak battery life and sparse App Catalogue as weak points for the device and its ecosystem. Palm, along with Nokia and BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, are in the position of playing catch-up against the Apple iPhone and its App Store, which features tens of thousands of applications and counting. However, while the initial applications offered for the Palm Pre may not be extensive in number, they certainly are useful for both the enterprise and general users. eWEEK lists some of the first ones being offered for the Palm Pre.
