"The Palm Pre is available from a variety of stores for $200 with rebate, after a two-year service contract, and at Best Buy the rebates are said to be instantly redeemable, says the story in our sister publication, eWEEK.. The Palm Pre's launch was met with crowds of prospective shoppers in some locations, although not as large as for previous iPhone launches, says the story.

"Meanwhile, the story links to glowing reviews in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, with the former calling it "elegant, joyous." (Yes, smartphones are now covered like movies, and the Pre may end up being the feel-good movie of the year -- a down and out former contendah fighting its way back to glory. If Mickey Rourke isn't available, see if we can get Sly Stallone.)"
