Thinks of Applications as Activity Cards
Reason No. 7: The Palm Pre thinks of applications as activity cards The Palm Pre thinks of applications as "activity cards" and lets you flip through them, move them around or throw them away. This takes the idea of an application or data being represented on the display as a "card" that can be easily managed via gestures.Reason No. 8: The Palm Pre comes with media syncThe Palm Pre comes with media sync that makes it easy to sync up with iTunes, which has now become the default music library on PCs. Apple should commend Palm for honoring iTunes as the PC music library, so users can continue to enjoy building their music library and then play those songs using the Palm Pre while they are out and about. Reason No. 9: The Palm Pre has built-in e-mail The Palm Pre has built-in e-mail so that users can easily set up their personal e-mail. And, companies such as Good Technology will provide e-mail services for enterprises (Good Mobile Services) and enhanced services for consumers (Good for You). Reason No. 10: The Palm Pre's UI goes to the next level The Palm Pre's UI goes to the next level in smartphones: It's intuitive and classy. You can pick up and move the control bar with your finger, it has pinch and expand, and it's more intuitive than the iPhone-which is achieved by a number of small things that simply make it very natural and easy to use. The way in which multiple Web pages are displayed and rotated, the way things are picked up, and the way to get back to somewhere else all seem to be done in a very well-thought-out and natural manner.
