A new smart phone is heading for stores. The Palm Pre was introduced Friday at the electronics show in Las Vegas. It will be the first phone to run on Palm's new operating system.

The Pre features a touch screen and a slide-down keyboard. It runs several applications at once so users can listen to music while surfing the web.

The Palm Pre will be available through Sprint in the first half of this year. A price has not be announced.
