Palm Pre: Evolutionary or Revolutionary?

There's an article in BusinessWeek about the Palm Pre. Titled, "A Smartphone Not Quite Smart Enough," author Stephen H. Wildstrom writes that the Palm Pre "seems evolutionary rather than revolutionary." His main point is that had the Palm Pre launched a year ago, it would have made a great impact in the smartphone market. However, now that we already have phones like the Apple iPhone, the BlackBerry Storm, and the G1 running Google Android, the Pre seems to be a "me too" product even though it boasts a new operating system called webOS. However, this new operating system may also be what hinders the success of the Palm Pre for people who want (or need) more applications.

So, what's to happen now that the Pre goes on sale today?
