Clearly, the iPhone is ahead of the Pre in terms of number of application, features, language support, format, and more…

Can the Pre compete? Yes, by developing more applications and adding new features?

It may not be able to match all the features and applications of the iPhone, but it can carve out a niche for itself and attract customers of its own.

In the end, if all goes well, it could develop into a worthy alternative to the iPhone.

let’s us know your thoughts.

Palm Pre Takes on the iPhone

The palm pre is an intriguing little device. I have decided to follow  it alongside Apple iphone because I believe that it is going to get interesting.


The competition is already on…and in case you wondering how well the Pre will do, I am going to make a prediction.

It is going to do well. If I am wrong, I will eat my words, but for now, I like the idea of finally having a smart phone that has the potential to  give the iPhone  ‘real’ competition.

With over 21 million sold worldwide and 50,000 plus applications available for download at the Apple store, the iPhone is in a class all by itself.

…not to mention the latest launch of the iPhone 3GS with some stellar features.

What’s so special about the Pre?
It is being touted as the 1st phone built to simulate the web itself. It can sync with the web, take data feed from email, pictures, video, facebook, linked in, twitter pals, and combine them into one comprehensive contact list without duplicates…a concept known on the Pre as synergy.

Also, with a feature called Universal search, if you just start typing on the keyboard, WebOS pulls up a pane that searches will search your contacts via google, wikipedia, or twitter.

Type a question and you have the answer almost immediately.

The user environment is a website. That means anyone who can build a website can write an application for the platform. This opens the door for a ton of future applications.

Also, the user interface can run a dozen applications simultaneously. Each application is represented by a virtual card. To switch between programs, simply leaf through the cards.

To close an application , simply filck away the card.

Clearly, the Key to the Pre’s success will definitely hinge heavily on it WebOS application.
