Palm Pre on Sherlock Palm Pre on Sherlock

The folks at BBC recently rebooted the classic detective series into the twenty-first century, bringing Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Lestrade, and the whole gang into the modern world with all its modern accoutrements. Included in those accoutrements are modern communications devices, and really is there any more modern of a mobile operating system than webOS? Sure, the Pre’s not the newest and fastest smartphone out there, but for somebody who relies a lot on intuition, the Pre and webOS make perfect sense for Holmes and company. Of course, we’ve yet to actually see the Pre in Holmes’ hands; smartphoning thus far has been the province of Inspector Lestrade.

Have you spotted the Pre, Pixi, or other Palm device on your favorite show? Drop us a note at with the show and a few relevant details like air date, time in the episode, and an online video link if you've got one!
