If you've been following the Palm Pre at all, you probably know that there are some concerns about the smartphone's design (check out hands-on photos here), particularly the QWERTY keyboard and plastic build.

The latter wasn't much of an issue for us, since we thought it had a pretty solid construction. However, we'll admit that the keyboard isn't great. On the one hand, we're thrilled with the inclusion of a physical keyboard, but the buttons are tiny and there's very little spacing between them. For some, it might be a deal breaker; for others, you'll learn to adjust and use the keyboard.

That said, the real beauty of the Palm Pre lies beneath the surface. Palm has built a solid platform in its webOS and created a system that offers great multitasking abilities, well-integrated features, and smart information management. To give you a closer look at the OS, we took these screenshots from our review unit of the Palm Pre so you can check out some of the smartphone's highlights, including the Deck of Cards feature, Universal Search, and Pandora.

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
