Yet another new CES 2009 Palm Pre demo has surfaced, and this one is a massive 35minutes long! The presentation includes almost all the aspects of the Palm Pre, from the Touchstone to Synergy to connectivity and media.  Most of the it we've already seen demonstrated, but there are a few new and noteworthy details in this video:

  • 01:43 - If a Pre receives a call while on the Touchstone, removing the phone from the Touchstone will answer the call.
  • 02:10 - Putting the Pre onto the Touchstone during a call will switch it to speakerphone mode.
  • 08:30 - Emails with attached photos will have inline viewing of the images at the end of the message.
  • 10:30 - Applications will need to be certified by Palm as they can also be distributed outside of the Palm App Catalog (which confirms Palm had their 3rd party distribution determined long before the investor's conference).
  • 18:25 - If you want to search something up on Google/Wikipedia/Maps via Universal Search and you still have on-device search results, you simply need to tap the search bar to get the 3 online search option buttons.
  • 32:00 - iCal synchronization is on the roadmap but in the meantime Palm suggests Google Calendar as an intermediary.
  • 33:40 - Multiple Google accounts are supported.
