And people feel bad for Microsoft and Nokia. Hell, their mobile divisions are actually selling some units and they’re even in the press. Even if it’s more because of rumored acquisitions than the outstanding quality of their OS or hardware. Which isn’t to say it’s not, but then again, so was that of the Pre and look where that got Palm. Bought out by HP for $1.2 billion, Hey, that’s not bad, actually.
However, for those of you with a thing for underdogs, the newest incarnation of the Pre is now available for pre-order. Better go grab one in case they, you know, sell out. Or become a collector’s item, whichever comes first. Although for $640, the 1.4 GHz Snapdragon, 512MB of RAM, 3.5-inch display and 8GB storage seems… meager. Amazon Germany has you covered if you’re looking to pull the trigger on this as soon as possible. And then again, why wouldn’t you? We can guarantee nobody else you know will have one.
