    listen.. apple fan boys are up in arms right now, i posted this in another thread, but the 5 features that made the iphone the "iphone" 4 years ago, are now being done either equal to or better then the iphone, by the pre. Till the pre maybe one phone out there did 1 of them better here or there, but def never was there a phone that had all 5 coveted features.

    1. multi-touch: made everyone drool 4 years ago, and is the prized possession of iphone owners; pre has it just as good or better

    2. vertical/horizontal views: again 4 years ago when you turned your phone sideways and the picture moved with it, people drooled; pre has it just as good or better

    3. full web browser: iphone was the first mobile device to render the web like that; pre now does it just as good or better

    4. conversational text: c'mon look at the iphones conversational text now, its embarrassing

    5. youtube video app: put a youtube video side by side with the iphone, the pre looks HD.

    for the past 4 years iphone users picked up opposing phones and looked for these features and said "nah not an iphone" well now there is a phone that does them all, and then has a TON more with the webos. at the end of the day, those 5 features are the iphone. iphone is an awful phone, awful texter, awful emailer, etc.

    Phones are probably one of the most personal technology devices you'll ever own because 99.9% of the time YOU are the one using it. So why the heck would someone be so personally offended by the random comments of anonymous internet strangers who'll NEVER touch your phone?

    If you like the way your phone works then that "should" be enough. If you feel the need to defend the phone you chose to buy then you obviously arent as satisfied as you claim.

    I'm pretty sure most of the tests using the iPhone 3G S have declared it faster (a little bit, anyway) than the pre in regards to the browser. And, I'm not sure I agree with you at the end there (iPhone is awful phone, etc), because it does have a few cutting-edge features.

    Don't get me wrong, I think the Pre whups the iPhone's ***, just not in some of the categories that you mentioned. For example, I think the multi-tasking in Pre blows away the iPhone, there is no comparison to that. Also, the whole concept of it being an open platform is very appealing as well. There is something about the "Apple" environment that just strikes as too restrictive.

    Just my thoughts.

    hey i would agree with that. i just see iphone users posting and telling me "ah not an iphone" "another iphone rip off" in the past that worked, but this is the first phone that really has done it all then some.

    i agree.. that was the TON more i mentioned.. i was just matching up the 5 very important iphone features that the pre does now as well. apple can't get by with those bells and whistles anymore b/c the pre has them as well.

    I'm curious why there are so many insecure Pre users on this forum that need to continually post threads about the IPhone trying to tear it down?

    LOL...I think it's more of a defensive mechanism to combat all the Pre smackdown chatter coming from iPhone fanboys and Apple themselves. So, who's insecure?

    Oh, another one of these threads.

    Long on off base criticism, short on substance.

    But it does seem a bit insecure....if you know that the phone meets your needs (or even if you feel it's a superior device in general), it really shouldn't matter if someone else feels the same about their phone.

    Ultimately, any discussion about personal opinions is subjective....it's like when my brother and I used to argue about who was better, the Beatles or the Stones.

    Basically RIMM and Apple are the Stones and the Beatles. Palm would be the Doors.

    No way! The Beatles were WAY better than the Doors - and I can prove it: I like them better!

    I can see why people like the iPhone. Heck, I think in many (if not most), it beats the Pre. What I don't see, though, is why all the yelling back and forth. We're talking about phones here.
