This is just a quick update for those who are really looking forward to Palm’s latest flagship. It’s finally been leaked via the Sprint website, the Palm Pre will sport alot of the specs which we have already mentioned but in addition to that is a few things we now know is confirmed. Storage will be 8GB, it will have on board Microsoft Outlook for email, integrated IM, built in GPS, headphone jack is 3.5mm and finally 3-megapixel camera with flash (more on the specs here).
Precentral also picked up on an important point revealed within the specs by Sprint…
7.4GB will actually be available from the 8GB included, possibly implying the size of the OS is somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 megs or so (though it’s still unclear what the relationship between the 8GB of storage and RAM will be, and whether or not the Pre will use Program Memory RAM/Storage ROM/Mass Storage like Windows Mobile or have a simpler RAM/Storage setup like other phones).
Also, MMS is CONFIRMED. So is Phone-as-modem via bluetooth or USB tethering. Yes!!
All in all, its absolutely wonderful to see these specs out, Apple should start to feel scared! Am really hoping to hear more news on when the Palm Pre will arrive the UK and when it does, what network!? We’ll keep you updated on this too.
