The Assistant You Wished You Had: Palm Pre and GPS Features
The Palm Pre continues to impress me despite not being released yet and being only available on Sprint. In the latest interview given by Roger McNamee of Elevation Partners–Palm’s investor–several new features were leaked out that makes the device more of the assistant you wished you had. According to
1. Automatically download important information based on calendar events: The Pre will scan your calendar at a pre-set time each morning and download maps of your appointment locations and Wikipedia articles to research people and firms you may visit.
2. Lateness warnings: With the GPS, calendar, and clock, the Pre will tell you if you’re not where you’re supposed to be at that moment in time. Not only will it know that you’re late, but it can also send out a message to interested parties to let them know you are running late.
