Getting your free time for free …

PalmPre USPalmPre DE

There is no doubt, the PalmPre is the only competitor for the iPhone that can be taken seriously, i.e., which has a user interface which is really optimized for small screen devices.

Palm was doing a great job – not only in hiring developers from Jobs – but also in getting the phone to a broad market as soon as possible.

Unfortunately they didn’t pay too much attention regarding the correct translations for the internationalized versions.

The “free time” on the US-version translates into “free of charge time” (kostenlose Zeit) in the DE-version.

I would bet that Apple would have had an eye on this detail, and Steve will have a good time hearing about these minor glitches …
