An Overview of the Palm Pre and the webOS
The Palm Pre uses Palm’s webOS, the replacement for the venerable Palm OS. This is a new, multi-tasking operating system able to wirelessly synchronize a wide variety of data with online services like Google and Facebook, as well as Microsoft Exchange.

The webOS includes an on-device app store, and a growing collection of third-party software is available.

The exclusive U.S. provider of this smartphone is Sprint, who has added its mobile broadband service EV-DO Rev. A. It’s also available from Bell Canada, who also uses the CDMA standard, so its version has EV-DO as well.

It will debut in Europe next month from O2.
