    Huh? Isn't that like talking about the date you never went on? Or the business school you never went to? Or the Porsche you never got yet?

    Pre is OK, iPhone still years ahead 05/21/2009
    By Lindz80 from Boston, MA Read all my reviews Read all my reviews

    What's great about it: Size, Software Integration, Sprint Network
    What's not so great: Freezes Randomly, Battery Life, Speakers Quiet, Web it VERY jumpy,

    "I've been reviewing the Palm Pre now for 2 weeks. It has it's great traits but, I have been an iPhone owner for almost 2 years now and I WILL NOT make the switch. Apple's iPhone dominates in battery life while use similar features (web, calls, and e-mail.) Palm's Pre does one thing really well - bring your personal and business life together as one. If that is all you need in a phone, then the Pre is for you. However, if you are looking to actually use it for power (any gaming, movie watching, prolonged music listening, or prolonged web use), this IS NOT the phone for you. I would recommend this phone to people that need it mainly as a phone but want occasional email and web access. The keyboard is nice but, I've gotten so much faster on the iPhone's keyboard that now I type twice as fast on the iPhone! Other than those tidbits, everything seemed to be OK. Like I said, web was jumpy at times, random crashes are definitely frustrating but...hopefully Palm will come through with an update that fixes these items. Sprint service was excellent!"

    I was going to get a Palm Pre... but Mr. Jobs told me I didn't need multitasking.... or cut-and-paste, or streaming video.... so I kneeled before the almighty Apple and asked for forgiveness.

    Steve Gods ....errr... Jobs told me to say twenty Our Fathers and twenty Hail iPhones and I would be forgiven.

    I am reporter and I have hot news... I just spotted a Pre in the wild... and Steve Jobs was using it. Steve told me he's going to sell as his Apple stock on Monday because the Pre's going to do in Apple. That's a review from the leading tech guru of our time.

    Wow, didn't even mention the ability to multitask...maybe she didn't try it because she is so used to not doing it.

    Thank you Sir! So very true.

    Phone History: Way too long

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.

    The Pre sucks because it doesn't synch with iTunes. Why don't I have an app for everything. Isn't the Palm Pre suppose to be Sprint's solution of not having a iPhone? If they want to improve this phone, remove the multi-tasking, copy/paste and add iTunes and maybe it can compete against the Jesus phone.

    Basically because it isn't the iPhone, it isn't worth thinking about. *tries to call the media from iPhone but the calls keep dropping* It doesn't matter, I can use wifi to find out where the nearest pay-phone is. As long as I have an iPhone, who needs great cell service.

    From BB.com:

    What's great about it: It looks Kinda shiney
    What's not so great: Bad Call Quality, Extremely Slow, Horrilbe Data Speeds

    Palm Has some serious issue's with this phone"

    After chatting with the guy at a local kiosk for a few minutes, I asked him if he'd received his Pre trainer. At first, he denied it, but then he said "yes" and pulled it out from under the counter.

    The thing was beautiful and he let me hold it. The slider was smooth, the screen clear, and it picked up my gestures so naturally that I didn't need any practice to get it to work.

    But, then, oops, I dropped it. On the hard ground. I picked it up and it was pretty cracked. In trying to hand it back to the guy, apologizing like crazy, I notice something weird. Popping open the cracked case, there was another screen inside.

    Before I could give it back to him, I'd popped it open fully and noticed that, inside, was a whole other device. Apparently, the Pre is just a shell to another device. Specifically, after a look at the marking on the inside device, it was an iPhone. In fact, if looked like it might be the legendary iPhone Nano. Smaller than the Pre, of course, but in was definitely an Apple device.
