Sprint unveils Palm Pre website, more details emerge including tethering

Sprint has recently gone live with the technical specs on the Palm Pre website and with it comes plenty of details, as well as a few questions. Perhaps one of the more exciting bits is that the Palm Pre will be able to tether and share its 3G EVDO Rev A high-speed data connection. The tethering will be possible using either a USB or Bluetooth connection. Of course that is where question number one comes in. How much extra will that tethering feature cost?

Aside from the ability to tether, the Palm Pre will also include 8GB of total storage with about 7.4GB available for the user. Which again, brings me to one disappointing point, the Pre will not allow for any extra storage because there is no external card slot.

Feature wise, the Pre will have a 3.1-inch touchscreen display with a 320 x 480 resolution, accelerometer, proximity sensor, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 3-megapixel camera with LED flash, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB mass storage mode. Additionally, it will also feature a light sensor that will automatically adjust the display brightness to help battery life.

The Pre will also have support for plenty of messaging options to include IM, SMS, MMS, POP email, IMAP email and Outlook with Microsoft Direct Push. This latest information release just gives me a little more excitement, and I feel the possibility of parting with my iPhone 3G becoming a little greater.

    Please Read the Specs.

    There is a Micro USB Connection that will allow External HD Drives to connect to the unit and allow External Storage.

    Also If you look at Micro USB Connections that means you could get a Micro USB Adapter for a SD Card and use that.

    Palm wants you to use the Cloud to store your data and back it up or to sync to your Computer via USB or Bluetooth or WiFi.

    So come on.
