Palm’s new Pre, running webOS.

Connected calendars and contacts
Pre uses the Palm® Synergy™ feature to bring your Outlook®, Google, and Facebook® calendars together for one logical view of your day. And if you have the same contacts in different places, Pre can link them together, making it easy to find the information you need.

Multiple activities
Keep multiple applications open and move easily between them—email, maps, photos, websites, whatever. Pre thinks of your applications as “activity cards”, and lets you flip through them, move them around, or throw them off screen.

Notifications bar
Things like text messages and calendar appointments appear as notifications at the bottom of the screen. You’ll know what’s going on without being completely interrupted or losing your train of thought.

Web-connected applications
An incredibly fast browser brings you full websites the way they were meant to be seen. Plus, the applications on the phone are connected to the web and constantly updated, so you get the latest information without having to work for it.

Universal search
Simply start typing to begin searching your contacts, applications, Google, or even Wikipedia. Universal search narrows down the possible results as you type, so it’s easier to find what you need.

Combined messaging
Thanks to Synergy, all your conversations with the same person are grouped together in one chat-style view. (Even if it started in IM, for example, and you want to reply with text.) You can also see who’s online right from contacts, and start a new conversation with just one touch.

Email, Wi-Fi, and GPS
Check email from Outlook® or personal accounts like Gmail, AOL, and Yahoo!. Take advantage of Wi-Fi hotspots. And look up directions or nearby points of interest using GPS. It’s everything you need, everywhere you go.

Breakthrough design
Slide out the keyboard for faster and easier texting. Close it up and rotate Pre for music, websites, photos, and videos in full widescreen glory. You get the best of both worlds in one
beautifully designed phone.

I’ve had my Pre given that shortly right after release and am glad to find (through this forum) that I can now set a ring tone on incoming text messages and can seek via e-mails and such. Now is there any hope for an upcoming release by which I can seek my calendar? Would make my career a great deal less complicated, finding dates of final appointments. No other complaints, except that yesterday I had been in and out of Sprint service (not unusual). I consider I used to be roaming, and looked at my calendar. Every little thing inside the calendar was one hour earlier than what I had input. The clock was one particular hour early as nicely. I used to be scared to death–then, once we got back into Sprint program yet again, almost everything was normalized. Has this happened to any person else?? Shopping forward to answers, but please don’t forget, I’m no techie and speak English rather than technospeak.
