Palm Pre: Top 15 Q&A-解答来自官方,涵盖很多方面

来自sprintpre.net,  其中解答了很多方面的问题。 有参考价值。

Palm Pre is the hottest product at this year’s CES. Palm’s new phone, runningtheir new webOS, is an object of envy and mystery. We were able to ask Palm and Sprint 15 of the top questions about things that weren’trevealed during during the Pre’s announcement. Here are their answers.

1.) How much will the Pre cost?

Palm and Sprint haven’t set the price yet. But analysts hope it will be $199 or $249 with a two-year contract.

售价问题, 199到249刀连2年合约价。

2.) What will Pre service plans look like?

The Pre’s data plans will be more like the Samsung Instinct’s plans than any other Sprint phone model, a Sprint rep said.

3.) Will other U.S. carriers get the Pre?

At least 90 days after Sprint does, but maybe as much as 6 months later.

独占销售问题, 3-6个月之后, 其他米国运营商可以销售。 独占销售期是90天。

4.) Will there be other Pre models?

Yes. There will be different models, in different shapes and sizes.According to a tipster, the next Pre may be a lower-cost,candybar-style phone without a QWERTY keyboard.

其他机型, 会有好几个, 不同形状和大小。 紧接的后续机型应该是个便宜些的直板全触摸无键盘机型。

5.) Will there be a GSM Pre?

Yes. Palm is anticipated to announce a GSM/UMTS model for Europe and Asia in mid-February.

GSM版本问题, 当然会有, 09年2月中在欧洲和亚洲发布。 (应该是赶着MWC大会(以前的3GSM大会)上再炒作一把,heh)
6.) When will foreign carriers get the Pre?
Palm expects to address this at a press conference at Mobile World Congress in mid-February.
同上, 相信不出意外Vodafone肯定将是首发, palm在欧洲亚洲的铁哥们
7.) How do I get my personal info into the Pre?
While the Pre won’t come with desktop software, there will be solution sfor people to get their Palm Desktop or Outlook info, and info fromearlier Treo and Centro models, into the Pre.
pim等信息迁移问题:  首先, webOS不再会有也不再需要专用桌面端。 不过, 会给出方案让老treo,centro用户把pim信息从palm desktop或是outlook里转移到Pre里。
8.) Will the Pre run Palm OS apps?
Not initially, but a third party could write a Palm OS emulator.
传统的garnet os程序兼容性问题: 至少pre发布不管, 第三方也许会有方案,只要有需求
9.) How do you get music and video onto the Pre?
You can drag and drop it over from your PC using USB mass storage, orbuy songs on the device using a built in Amazon MP3 Store client.
传递影音数据问题:  pre支持u盘模式, 直接复制即可, 或是在线在amazon上买(这个和Android一样)
10.) What will the app store look like?
I saw it; it has a page of featured apps with star ratings below them. It looks a lot like the Apple app store.
软件商店问题,  palm为pre准备了自己的软件商店(注:名字是app catalog), 表现形式和水果的app store类似(app store,Android的app market,长得都差不多)
11.) How about the SDK?
The SDK will be called Mojo, and will have APIs to extend Javascript toaccess hardware features of the device, Palm reps said. There are things you won’t be able to do in the 1.0 SDK, like write directly to the frame buffer. But you’ll be able to access all the core phone databases.
SDK问题:  SDK的名字叫Mojo(更详细信息参见palm开发者网站),SDK会提供各类api用以扩展Javascript的功能来访问各类硬件特性。也许在乍一发布的1.0版本SDK里,你还不能直接访问物理缓存等底层,但所有核心数据等都是可以访问的(也意味着,可能和iphone类似,将来还会开放更深层次的sdk)
12.) How does the browser work?
The browser is based on WebKit, like Apple’s Safari. It support sstreaming video in RTSP, H.263 and H.264 formats, but not Flash.However, I’m almost 100 percent sure Palm and Adobe are working on a Flash plug-in right now.
浏览器问题:  浏览器引擎是Webkit, 支持RTSP,h264等流媒体, 一如既往和safari和Chrome lite一样不支持flash,heh。 不过, 已经确信palm和adode在开发合适的Flash插件(其实估计不是专门给palm开发的,adobe做好了,至少Android上肯定可以用, iphone上,apple貌似很不喜欢flash~~~~)。
13.) Will there be restrictions on apps?
Palm will certify all developers and approve all apps, but only to makesure they work properly. They won’t kill apps for content-relatedreasons like Apple does. Think Android, not iPhone.
第三方应用的限制问题:  palm会采取验证和批准机制来保证上app catalog的程序,不过,没有其他更多因素,只是为了保证上架的程序可以确实正常工作。 绝不会像水果公司那样基于内容或是自己利益的原因去砍掉第三方程序。 这点上,和Android上google的做法一样, 和iphone上苹果的做法差异很大。
14.) Is webOS Linux based?
Yes, but developers won’t get access to the Linux core.
OS问题: webOS的确是linux based。 不过, 不会开放Linux 核心层给开发者的。
15.) When will we hear more?
At both Mobile World Congress in mid-February and the CTIA trade showin late March—but probably also more often, and sooner, than that.
更多谣传和消息问题:  MWC和CTIA,分别将在2月中和三月底召开,届时将有更多八卦~~~~敬请期待~~
