Palm Pre - Computer Definition
A smartphone from Palm that was introduced in 2009 exclusively with Sprint in the U.S. Following the huge success of the iPhone, Palm introduced the webOS-based Pre with a slide-out keyboard and multitasking, the latter not available on the iPhone until later. Although initially acclaimed, the Pre line never achieved much success. The Pre was followed by several models (Pre 2, Pre 3, Pre Pixi, Pixi Plus), but a year after Palm was acquired by HP in 2010, the line was dropped. See Palm and webOS.
