Palm Pre with webOS is a Beauty

At first the new Palm Pre webOS smartphone looked weired with its curvy shape. Now spending some time looking at more detailed Palm Pre photos I actually think this is a very beautiful and smart design for a smartphone.
It could be that Palm is really back in the game with this one like it was with the Palm Pilot PDAs years ago.
The Palm webOS (Nova) looks like something Microsoft has been promising us for years. At its core, webOS leverages several industry-standard technologies, including web technologies such as CSS, XHTML and JavaScript. The new platform introduces Palm Synergy, a key feature of webOS that brings your information from all the places it resides into one logical view. You don't have to worry about tracking multiple calendars, contacts and messaging applications - Synergy brings it to you for a more comprehensive and truly representative view of your life.
