Using the calendar on the Palm Pre is pure joy - it combines all of your appointments from Microsoft Exchange and Google Calendar into one. It syncs with web services nicely, adding both Gmail and Microsoft Outlook meetings in one view.
BUSY: The calendar view on the Pre shows blocks for when you are busy that week
DETAIL: You can press with a finger to see the details of any meeting – here, the meeting was imported directly from Google Calendar
NEW EVENT: You can also create a new event on the Pre, which syncs up automatically back to your online calendar
TODAY: The today view is unremarkable in that it only shows your scheduled meetings and local weather info, but nothing more
JUMP: The calendar function provides a quick Jump To feature that lets you see upcoming appointments
CHOOSE CALENDAR: You can configure which calendar you use for the Pre – the one for Facebook, Google Calendar, or the built-in calendar
