    The iPhone OS is easier to use than the Pre? Really?

    Other than that nitpick, not a bad guide.

    a good comparison but I still think you gotta have an asterisk next to the other platforms with respect to turn by turn nav because to my knowledge nobody outside sprint includes it with the plan for no extra cost.

    I am more shocked at how they worked out carrier costs. They were so wanting to skew it towards AT&T. I mean the unlimited plan includes GPS, MMS, NFL, TV etc.

    Is there any point to Gizmodo anymore?

    They probably should've included the Bold rather than the POS Storm, as far as I'm concerned

    Also, someone here said the Pre supports Apple Lossless.

    Some nitpicks:

    1. Why is the processor in the iPhone 3G S considered "next-gen"? Isn't the Pre's processor/chipset actually a higher version of the TI OMAP? Doesn't that apply to the GPU as well, or am I missing something?

    2. They say that the G2 and BB are "laissez-faire" by allowing apps to be installed from anywhere. The Pre will allow sideloading as well, and as far as I know there won't be any restrictions on sideloaded apps. And so only Apple is restrictive in this sense.

    3. They call 200 text messages/month practical, which I think is anything but. It looks to me like they're just trying to squeeze the iPhone in there at a competitive price.
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > HTC Mogul (*****!) > HTC Touch Pro (***** squared!) > PRE! > Epic

    Gizmodo really does have a strong bias towards the iphone.

    Wow, they fail hardcore.

    The Storm has a capacative touch screen.
    The Storm supports multi-touch, just not in the form of pinch zooming.
    The Pre has a 3 megapixel camera.
    The Pre supports tethering via bluetooth
    In today's world, 200 txts per month is NOT practical.
