Palm ads improve just in time for sale to HP

Palm

Just as the future of both Modernista! and Palm seemed in doubt, a strange thing happened: They started putting out some pretty good ads together. Palm had reportedly been shopping around for a new agency after the disappointing launch of the Pre smartphone when suddenly it was announced this week that Hewlett-Packard was buying Palm for a cool $1.2 billion in cash. In the midst of this chaos, a few new spots for the Palm webOS have quietly rolled out. They follow the "Don't miss a thing" theme that launched last month, and unlike the Pre ads, they won't be criticized for not highlighting features or the interface. Check out one of the new spots below and two more after the jump. UPDATE: As keen-eyed commenter Drew points out, BlackBerry seems to be going for a nearly identical visual effect in its new sneak-peek video.
