iPhone vs. Pre - Internal AT&T Document Kicks Palm's Booty
AT&T is firing up to point out all the ways the iPhone wins against the Pre if this leaked internal document is any indication. Good old competition. While there are many things on the list above that can be disputed some of them seem to be fact. The pre won't work in the rest of the world as it is being released on Sprint (sad), the screen is smaller, 3d graphics limitations, and other various things.
Surprisingly the document actually lists some (well only one) of the Pre's advantages: a full QWERTY keyboard. What? Did you think AT&T was going to publish reasons the Pre might be better than the iPhone?
edit: ppl have asked "why the bogus comparison"
a) This is an internal AT&T document. AT&T is not going to publish a document saying that the Palm Pre on Sprint is better than the iPhone on AT&T. Duh.
b) Why don't you educate everyone else on why the Palm Pre is better. Saying "This shizat is bogus the world is full of crap" is not constructive or compelling.

That phone is sweeet! I think it would be a perfect backup phone for my iphone. Hopefully they will bring it to att after a while, and i definitely get it. I think it is one of the iphones true competitors.

I hope the Pre will succeed - but I fear it wont. I don't think it compares with the iPhone and they should aim it at a different market but I certainly don't want to see Palm go under which they will do if it doesn't succeed.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

With the new features that are coming in the next firmware, all the features that were missing in the iPhone it will have and it will have more features than any other smartphone.

The only thing I like about the Pre is its Multitasking..While on MSN you can go to other Apps and still be online..
Hope that Apple brings Multitasking. Thought they said the new iPhone will have a Better Dual CPU..so MULTITASKING is a MUST on the iPhone...
If that is included...than nothing will beat it even if the world explode

I'm glad that's not a biased comparison.<g>
Actually the Pre is starting out better than the iPhone started.
I think we will see Apple spoon feed us a little faster knowing that the Pre is coming.

I dropped my phone on the face plenty of times and I have yet to crack or break my screen. You have to admit they did well with their design because if you break the glass you can always buy a replacement glass and fix it yourself with a razor blade and patience. Palm comes out with 1 - 2 phones a year and they suck in my opinion. Plenty of software glitches such as the continuous reboot when hotsyncing. Yes you can fix a palm and it's hard to break it but DO YOU REALLY want to sit there and fix it? No..
Next iPhone is going to be sweet.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

why the bogus comparison? Why the insults? is so pathetic to think of one device as anything so important that you have to make such a ridiculous made-up comparison..... simply, pathetic!

Ya it's a bit biased but the iPhone still wins.

For one, IMO that is a fugly phone, iphone is much sexier, but ive always like palm os in the past, plus isnt it palm that brought us the best orignal pda's come on, if it werent for them we wouldnt have great phones like the iphone, though i think it does suck that they are realeasing it on sprint without GSM capabilities, at least blackberry thought of it when they made the, bold, it has full gsm capabiliteis
also why sprint, did the iphone push palm away from at&t?
