iphone-vs-palm-pre

Palm Pre is leading the way for the best alternative of  iPhone.Palm Pre is showcased in CES 09 and expected to hit the market very soon.Palm pre is based on Web OS which supports Multitasking yes the first ever multitasking capable phone at a very nice interface.Palm have never been ones for producing groundbreaking handsets, but all that could be about to change with the Palm Pre 3G.

Palm handsets of old run on Windows Mobile, but the Pre wanted to do things different, which is where the new webOS browsers comes in. First impressions of the phone and OS are good, and the phone works smoothly with this new software.In the short words Palm pre is the next alternative for iPhone lets take a look on the some features of both smartphone’s.

1. Screen: Both phones have capacitive & multitouch Screens The Pre’s glowy little “gesture area” has dropped the touchable real estate all the way down to the bottom of the phone.

2. Multitasking: In the case of Multitasking Palm is the clear winner & iPhone lagging miles behind.

3. Developers : Again Palm pre is leading with WEBOS because it supports JavaScript, HTML and CSS.While Apple has provided OS X-based SDK.

4. Web Integration: Bang Palm Pre again with WEBOS it supports to share your contacts of Facebook, Gmail, IM and and scanned for duplicates also.Truly Web Interface.

5. Applications : Here Apple gains the advantage of Third party appllications Via App store or Cydia there are tons of free & paid applications available for iPhone while it may take time to Palm Pre to have this type of support.

6. Camera: The Pre has an LED Flash for its 3MP camera, something  iPhone lacks. Flash cellphone photos are ugly, but for a lot of people, they’re good enough. So Palm Pre gains another advantage.

7. Keyboard : Palm Pre has Physical QWERTY Keyboard while iPhone has pretty Virtual Touch keyboard.For the exixting iPhone user like me it’s a bit hard now to use QWERTY Keyboard so iPhone gains another advantage.

8. Battery: Apple’s comes with their non-removable battery while Palm pre comes out for a spare swap too.

9. Copy & Paste: Yes, Pre’s got it. iPhone still doesn’t & not expected in near future.

10. Browser: Both iPhone & Palm Pre use a browser based on WebKit, which has become the standard for the mobile web.

Conclusion : Apple must have to work on the Third version of  iPhone to compete with Palm Pre other wise palm pre has the potential to grab a good amount of Smart Phone market.

      There are a couple of things this article fails to mention when it comes to the iPhone. The iPhone 3GS has a 3 MP camera as well, and while it may not have a flash, it does have auto-focus and video recording and trimming that the Pre does not include. It also fails to mention that the iPhone does have copy and paste. C&P was introduced in the 3.0 software update.

      It can have music on there very simply. Do your homework before you diss a device so quickly. Music on there is amazing, and that’s saying smething since i own both iphone 3GS and Palm Pre.
      The only thing lacking are abundance of apps. Which, truly, i can live without.
