Palm Pre makes Popular Mechanic's top gadgets of 2009

Too bad Palm has failed miserably at setting up their app store. They made this great hardware device and forgot that in the last five years it has become less about the phone and more about what the phone can do in regards to applications, communication, and web integration. I was really pumped about getting the Pre (if and when it ever came to Verizon), but now I'm leaning heavily toward Android-based devices especially after seeing updates on Eclair.

The apps that are there have been downloaded 8M times, the more you all slobber over vzw the more you show biases on anything outside of the vzw umbrella

Lol Palm Pre... Maybe if it's #10 on the Top 10 list.

What difference does it make what position it is, it's on the list

Palm Pre made list cheers to WebOS, the hardware itself is pretty garb, especially for a high end phone...

Good thing you aren't an author for the mag because it's not just Web OS, a combination of software and hardware is what makes it interesting
