I had a Palm Pre from mid-2009 until I got my first iPhone (iPhone 4) in late 2010. It was a really neat, very hackable Linux-based smartphone.

It suffered from lack of good software support and poor battery life.

Photos from I was actively using it in 2009-10. :)


@zorinlynx also the hardware wasn't great when all's said and done

Still, the Pre had the best messaging app. I could put everything into one app and it'd Just Work. Try that with today's apps...

@yakkoj @zorinlynx The Pre 3 finally got the hardware right. Sadly, it was too late. And the stupid tablet...everyone was installing Android on it. Oh well!
