    Sorry i open a new thread for this, I found Ars has some lines that really identified the revolutionary importance of Palm Pre, the things that "others are bound to follow".

    Articles are
    http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/pos...-new-handset-pre-operating-system-at-ces.html
    and
    http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20090111-of-clouds-palms-webos-and-cutting-the-cord.html

    The importance as I see it, and as I agree with Ars are
    and

    I read many reviews and opinions, Zdnet, Cnet, AllthingsD, Gizmodo, engadget, etc. everybody focuses on the one of more aspects of the whole package. But nobody stated as deep as Ars did.

    The fundamental forward progress of the WebOS is very important, IMHO, as it materialized a truly desktop like environment on a handset. (think about it, if it can be connected to a bigger display, it behaves like a real computer, multi-tasking, no interruption of multiple work-flows of users)

    iPhone has a powerful hardware combo and a capable OS. But at the current stage, its still in the old playfield, and its basically a glorified app launcher. I don't know if apple could or would follow the Pre, but I know it SHOULD.

    Ouch.

    And here everybody thought that the iphone would have Apple in front of the pack for a good 5 years before they competition caught up.
    It took only 2 years it seems.

    Apple better BRING it at their next major event announcement.

    Jon Rubinstein did address this new paradigm in his keynote, where information is smartly combined and presented in a unified UI. I do think this is revolutionary, and a step beyond Apple's implementation with their approach.
