Hello from CES in Las Vegas! Boing Boing Gadgets' Joel and Brownlee got a hands-on demo with the new Palm Pre here, and Boing Boing's video team was there to cover them. Watch the whole review above. In the first half of the video, Brownlee and Joel grill a Palm rep -- who doesn't want to let either of them touch the device -- about features and what's under the hood. In the second half of today's video, our fellas huddle over brews and watered-down show floor drinks with Jon Stokes from Ars Technica for a post-game analysis. Verdict seems to be that if this is Palm's "hail mary," it just might work. The Pre seems pretty sweet. Here's the Pre product page at palm.com.
