    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    the Pre will be popular until July when Apple drops the next iPhone with version 3.0 software. hopefully Sprint / Palm can sell about 500 million units in 2 months.

    No doubt that the 2 year old iPhone will be miles ahead of the new Pre in many areas. I think the Pre has a lot of potential. The upshot to this is that it will keep Apple on it's toes.

    Haha wow! Totally unbiased chart! /sarcasm


    I love the iPhone as much as the next guy but come on, who made this chart? Oh that's right ATT


    LOL, I'll wait til the Pre establishes itself in the market before I make such ridiculous comparisons.

    LOL so much crap in that chart.

    Examples:

    Plastic case? Yeah, hello, iPhone 3G is plastic with a metal bezel. Might want to mention all the cracking issues

    World phone? Uhhh right, maybe if you've jailbroken or unlocked your iPhone so you can put in a local SIM card wherever you go. Otherwise, have fun roaming for $3 a minute, as AT&T doesn't allow SIM unlocks.

    Available in black only? As opposed the many color options the iPhone gives you....

    No sync, drag and drop file management. Sorry, but most users would find this an advantage not a drawback. iTunes sucks ***, and if you want to sync, there's plenty of other media players that can do it, namely Winamp / WMP.

    Limited business applications at launch. Right, Palm is a founder of the Smartphone for business use.

    But whatever, that document is for AT&T employees to recite to unsuspecting customers who foolishly believe the service reps are being honest.

    the iPhone is the best phone out and it will stay that way for a long time! Perhaps until the new iPhone is released.

    Default ...limited wi-fi?
    so let me get this straight...

    the iphone can magically log onto wi-fi networks that the Pre can't?

    What the bleep is the difference if i log onto burger kings wi-fi network with the iPhone versus if I log onto it with the Pre?

    Are Hotspots now getting biased as to who can log onto their networks?

    Is the Pre going to only be allowed to sit "in the back of the bus" and only drink from designated water fountains?

    Hell, I never once had a problem logging into any hotspot with my HTC wizard, and that was a Windows Mobile 6.1 Device...

    LOL it's just AT&T saying that if you don't buy the iPhone, you can't go to Starbucks and use the free AT&T wifi hotspot. Oh noes!!!

    Yes, and since this is a true statement, they are technically not dieing. Clever clever!

    === I HOPE YOU ALL REALIZE THE PALM PRE IS AND WILL BE BETTER IN MANY WAYS THAN THE IPHONE ! EVEN AFTER THE 3.0 UPDATE THE IPHONE WILL STILL LACK MANY FEATURES BUILT INTO THE WEBOS WICH IS WHAT WILL BE RUNNING ON THE PRE , MANY IPHONE DEVELOPERS ARE ALREADY RAVING AND COMMENTING ON HOW THE WEB OS IS FAR SUPERIOR TO THE IPHONE OS ... AND MANY OF U FAIL TO REALIZE THAT THE REASON THE PALM PRE'S OS IS SO SIMILAR TO THE IPHONES IS THAT THE DEVELOPERS BEHIND THE WEB OS IS A GROUP OF X APPLE DEVELOPERS AND PALM DEVELOPERS . ! SO REST ASSURED THAT THE WEBOS IS OFFICIALLY SUPERIOR! OH BY THE WAY SPRINT THE OFFICIAL WIRELESS PROVIDER FOR THE PRE IS BY FAR AS TESTED THE BEST!!! 3G PROVIDER EVEN SUPERIOR TO VERIZON !! ITS A FACT !! NO WIRELESS PROVIDER IN THE US CAN TOP THE SPEEDS OF THERE DATA NETWORK.. GOOGLE IT ! DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT !! AND SPRINT IS ABOUT TO RELEASE THE 4G NETWORK NATIONWIDE!! THE FIRST TO DO SO ! .. I SUGGEST WE ALLL PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE PALM PRE'S WEB OS AND ITS PROGRESS !! ITS A BIG DEAL ! NOT NO PHONY IPHONE WANNABE .. ITS THE REAL DEAL! OH AND JUS LET ME ADD A LITTLE THING THAT I KNOW WE'VE ALLL BEEN DIENG TO SEE ON THE IPHONE ... ==== ''FLASH'" THATS RIGHT PEOPLE THE PRE WILL HAVE BUILT IN FLASH CAPABILITIES .. SORRY BUT THATS ENOUGH TO CATCH EVERYBODYS EYES ESPECIALLY DEVELOPERS.. !!

    At least with the iPhone you don't have to SHOUT!

    The PRE's OS is interesting and I hope it will succeed but going with Sprint is, IMHO, a mistake. They are to small a player for Palm to get the sales they need. I fear this could be Palm's swansong which would be a shame.
    The Pre is also fugly which will harm it's sales if it ever makes it outside of the USA but small qwerty keyboards do seem quite popular in the USA so I doubt if it will do any harm for sales there.
    However good the OS is it is only one part of a phone and the lack of capital at Palm means their marketing will be limited and I fear it is to late for Palm - I hope I am wrong and it is a success so we can see it this side of the Pond - but time will tell.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    > SO REST ASSURED THAT THE WEBOS IS OFFICIALLY SUPERIOR!

    OK, so we should listen and realize that the WebOS is superior to Objective C and cocoa and the compiling tools on the Mac? Give me a break. Why don't you learn how to program and then start talking again?
