At the bottom of the post La noche de los “Palm Pre” vivientes, por Carlos Burges, there’s a QuickTime video in which a Palm rep clearly states that the Pre has “256 megs RAM.” Although the post is in Spanish, the video is in English (you have to wait through a clunky video animation intro before the demo begins, so be patient).
Here’s the screensnap that highlights the vocalized specs:
Contrast this to the Memory specs posted by Palm itself:
What’s also interesting in this video is that the Palm rep shows a list of Calendars he has synced:
This screensnap is blurry, so watch the video to see there are at least five synced Calendars! Syncing to public Calendars is an intriguing idea! Imagine ones for Jewish holidays, for other specific religious holidays and observances, as well as birth and death Calendars for public figures of specific specialities (the days, say, on which writers were born and died, such as Edgar Allan Poe).
This video also confirms — perhaps again, but this time I see it explicitly demonstrated — that the Palmness of the Calendar remains. Unlike, say, on Windows Mobile where entering a Calendar item take you to a (cluttered) entry screen, on the Palm Pre tapping on a time makes the field active and it can be typed into immediately — just like the Calendar we have all known and loved.
Another thing I’ve never seen before this video is in the email application. He expands his GMail account and shows the list of folders that reside in this account. This is another blurry screensnap:
I use YahooMail myself, but it has become increasingly reliable. I have a GMail account too but I rarely use it — the Palm Pre might get me to switch to it.
Here’s another thing I’ve never seen in other videos: HTML embedded in a received email.
Double-tap to smart enlarge works on that embedded web page (which is from the Time magazine website) as well as Pinch-In and Pinch-Out.
All of this is exciting stuff and only further whets my appetite for the Pre!
