Palm Pre Designers Speak Up On Apps, Pre Hardware, and the Importance of an "Organic" Feel

Palm designer Michelle Koh and CEO Jonathan Rubinstein have recently begun speaking about the design process of the Pre, and they've got some pretty interesting insights. These aren't PR people spouting catchphrases—these are the folks who create.

Michelle Koh's interview is particularly interesting; we love how she clearly admires the iPhone, and doesn't feel the need to trash it. She makes it clear that one of the most important parts of the design process was really adoring the product they were creating, and she does think the Pre is great, but that doesn't mean she needs to engage in competitive smack talk. Check out the interviews (Michelle Koh is here, and the design team is here) for a wider view of the Pre and how it came to be. [via Engadget]
