Angelina Jolie Already Owns the Palm Pre
Palm's upward trek on the celebrity evolution ladder began with C-list celebs endorsing the Centro in 2007 and 2008 before migrating to the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Howard Stern shows earlier this year. Now, as the Pre's release date draws near, it appears that Palm has ascended to A-list status with Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie offering up one of the first actual hands-on initial impressions of the forthcoming Pre.
Courtesy of LA Gossip Examiner contributor "Daryl D", Jolie has offered up a mini-review directly from the set of her upcoming film "Salt" with her initial thoughts of the device. While it is unknown if the Pre in question was supplied by Palm or Sprint, the device must be very close to retail-ready form if it is being used by celebrities and discussed openly with production assistants.
An anonymous P.A. from the set reporting in the Examiner article says that Jolie:
"…went on about it for about two minutes. She likes the software better than the iPhone, she likes the thumboard for texting (although the keys aren't big enough), and thinks the screen is beautiful but can be too easily scratched".
Also of note is the LA Gossip Examiner's report contains a Pre demonstration photo taken from PalmInfocenter's CES coverage in January without providing a link or acknowledgement of the image's source. No actual photos of the actress using the device are posted.
