Palm Pre - unimpressed

I don't care if the Palm Pre is the world's greatest mobile web wonder.

I have that problem solved.

The problem I have is work/home calendar/task/contact integration in a world where corporations hold tight to their Exchange data.

If Palm were addressing that problem, I'd be interested. The original US Robotics PalmPilot made a stab in that direction, and in the 90s we could connect a serial cable and suck data from Outlook at work while synchronizing at home.

It wasn't pretty and it didn't work that well, but the Palm Pre appears to be in a totally different zone.

A zone owned by the iPhone.
