Forget about the iPhone. The new Palm Pre has stepped onto the mobile stage, and looks set to take the spotlight.

Its 3.1-inch touch screen, gesture area and QWERTY slide out keyboard promise an enhanced user interface. The Pre also links contacts from multiple sources (Yahoo, Hotmail, Facebook, etc) into one contacts list, recognising multiple entries for one person, and the layered calendar feature, allowing you to see social and business calendars separately or combined. Its combined messaging ability means you can switch from IM to email to text, all at a swipe.

· High-speed connectivity (EVDO Rev. A or UMTS HSDPA)
