This Week In Tech 199: I'm A Dinner Jacket



  • The Palm Pre

Dvorak borrowed a Palm Pre from "the man" and didn't like it. He says the keyboard is unusable, he doesn't see the difference to the Android phones, he likes the material it's made of and the screen though, and altogether he just thinks that Palm is late to the game. He doesn't see the Pre saving Palm. Wil counters that with saying "It's [The Palm Pre is] a useable smartphone that's not on AT&T", and because so many people want an iPhone but just will not sign a contract with AT&T, the Pre will sell nonetheless.
