Palm made a big splash at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show, announcing its new mobile operating system, WebOS, and a touch-screen smartphone called the Pre (rhymes with "knee").

Like the iPhone, the Palm Pre uses a touch-screen with multitouch capabilities, so you can zoom in and out of a Web page or photo by pinching your fingers.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg made an appearance during the Palm presentation, noting that 20.8 million people are now using Facebook on mobile devices. Facebook likes that, she said, because mobile users are generally far more active than those who don't use the site on their cell phones.
