William Shatner is not afraid to show off his Palm Pre
Captain Kirk sported some interesting gear that would naturally appease the most hardcore Star Trek fan out there, but the real life Captain Kirk nonchalantly whipped out one smartphone that some would be surprised to see the old captain packing. During the taping for The New York Times' online Screen Test series, William Shatner, or simply the Shat, spent the time talking about the beloved series, but interestingly enough, took out his cell phone to take a call from his daughter. No, it wasn't some kind of Star Trek oriented looking handset, but instead, just simply the webOS powered Palm Pre. It's hard to see which version he is carrying, but you can distinctively hear the default webOS ringtone playing as he's receiving a phone call. Although it wasn't the focal point of the video, it's nice to see someone like the good captain keeping it real.

Well Palm Pre is among these more techie looking phones on the market, there are not many better looking phones on the market (no, I don't have one :) ).

The coolest thing is that I am the one who sold the phone to Mr. Shatner! He and his wife are two extremely nice people, I am glad that I go the chance to work with them! Believe it or not...Shatner was on the waiting list for this phone too :)
