Reaction to the phone and especially the software has been nearly universally positive, with Ars Technica noting that the ‘deck of cards’ multitasking paradigm makes most existing phone OSes seem out of date in comparison.

It certainly looks impressive so far and investors seem to agree, with PALM stock up nearly 35% on the day.
