With Christmas and the end of the year coming up quick PCWorld has released their top 10 most brilliant products of 2009. While the Pre did not make the list it is hot on the heels of those that did at number 14.
To make the list consumer electronics were rated on design, functionality, how well they perform and the impact it has on the consumer. The list did not just consist of phones and other devices but of software and even websites such as Facebook which came in at number 16. Here is what they had to say about the Pre:
14. Palm Pre (smartphone, $150 with two-year Sprint contract) The Pre wowed us with its engaging (and fun to use) WebOS software and eye-catching hardware. Thanks to the Pre’s responsive multitouch screen, its intuitive gesture-based controls, and WebOS’s beautiful way of organizing information, this smartphone is a pleasure to use. The keyboard may not be perfect, but that’s a minor trade-off for everything else the Pre offers.
PCWorld is among the leaders in consumer electronics news and reviews so making the 14th place for the entire year speaks volumes about the device itself.
