The new Palm Pre with the new webOS wins CNET's Best of CES 2009 Award.
We are still letting the dust settle and will unveil our top CES 2009 choices later this week, but the Palm Pre really stood out at the CES 2009. It actually stood out so much that it felt out of place with no new Windows Mobile and new Android handsets unveiled at the CES 2009.
Scott Ard, Editor-in-chief of CNET Reviews says about the their award choice: "The Palm Pre truly stood out for its beautiful and smooth design, and simple, easy-to-use interface with a multi-touch screen. Our CNET editors particularly liked the Palm Pre's ability to run multiple applications simultaneously and its open operating system that could prove to be an attractive platform for software developers. Winning both the 'Best of Show' and 'People's Voice' awards -- a first for the show -- Palm Pre is poised to be one of the most anticipated tech gadgets in the coming year."
Winners in other CNET Best of CES 2009 categories include the VAIO P, EchoStar SlingLoaded HD DVR 922, Gracenote CarStars, Nyko Wand, Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-G3, Samsung HT-BD7200, Samsung P3 and Panasonic G10 TVs.
