PC Magazine: Palm Pre Most Innovative New Platform of 2009

It must be that time of year again…where everyone feels compelled to pick Top 10 lists for everything. Following up on Time’s declaration that the Motorola Droid is the top dog for their Top 10 Gadgets of 2009 list, PC Magazine has come up with their own list of top picks.
This year, PC Magazine has selected the Palm Pre as the Most Innovative New Platform of the year, writing:

“Palm has returned with the coolest handheld device we’ve seen in a long time. The Palm Pre has the same exhilarating sense of possibility as the iPhone—and it’s even worth switching to Sprint for. The Pre is the start of something genuinely new: Palm’s webOS, an innovative operating system that’s benefited a lot by what the company has learned from Apple’s smartphone successes.”

The iPhone 3GS did take the top spot for Best Consumer Smartphone.
