    The Palm Pre, regularly described as ‘The iPhone killer’, isn’t officially available until June 7 but we did find the ‘unboxing video’ of this exciting new device.

    What we can conclude from watching this video:

    – The device looks cool
    – Either her hands are really small or the Palm Pre is really big
    – The packaging is nicer then most gadget’s but not as cool as Apple’s packaging
    – This could very well be a fake unboxing video
    – There are Palm Pre’s out there!

    What we already knew:

    – Multi tasking is possible
    – Completely new user interface
    – Integration between Browser and other apps
    – Combined messaging (Chats, Emails, Texts are all linked to one person)
    – Will charge wirelessly (sort of)
    – Supposed to ‘save’ Palm from deadpool

    Enjoy the unboxing video:
