It looks like this is the year of Messiah. First Obama, and now the Palm Pre. That’s right, this could truly be the savior for Palm, and at the same time, perhaps Sprint too.  Yes, believe it or not, Sprint has actually landed a state-of-the-art mobile device that another provider won’t offer – at least not for the initial launch, sometime around early 2009.

But enough about Obama and Sprint.  Feast your eyes on the new kid on the block. Watch out iPhone.

Here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to know spec-wise:

  • High-speed wireless (EV-DO Rev. A or HSDPA, depending on version)

  • Integrated GPS
  • 3.1-inch 24-bit color 480 x 320 display
