I've been using an iPhone 2g since it first came out and i gotta say i love the thing to death. It's time to upgrade, so i will either be selling the 2g or keeping it for international travel since its unlocked. I was a bit reluctant about the Palm Pre because of previous experiences with Palm OS. I know it uses the new WebOS, but i was thinking "how good it is really going to be compared to the iPhone OS?". Since i checked it out today in person, i gotta say i was really impressed with it. A couple of my thoughts... - I am planning to get the 450 minute plan. ATT costs $80, Sprint costs $70. Sprint includes unlimited texts and navigation, ATT you need to pay more for text ($5+) and navi ($10). I probably wouldn't use navi much on the Pre, and i definitely wouldn't buy the navi service on ATT so the difference in price for me is $85 for ATT 450 minutes + 200 texts versus $70 for Sprints 450 minutes with unlimited texts. This is probably the biggest decision on why i am considering Sprint over ATT. But most of my friends have iPhones and therefore ATT service. Although i never go over the 450 minutes on ATT because of mobile to mobile, it will be a concern if i am on Sprint. - iPhone costs $199, Pre costs $299 + $100 mail in rebate. I can't stand mail in rebates. I just hate them with a passion. - Pre can multi task. That is something that has always bothered me with the iPhone. - I've been traveling a lot and i like the fact that the iPhone uses a SIM. I assume the iPhone 3gs will eventually be unlocked. No luck with the Palm Pre in this dept. I plan to either keep my old iPhone or unlock a cheap Tmobile phone so although its a +1 to ATT on this, it doesn't really factor too much in my decision. - The Palm uses an actual keyboard which i would instinctively say i like better because I never did care for devices with touchscreen buttons. But the Palm Pre's keyboard feels cheap and lacks the positive feel that keyboards usually have, which kinda nulls the reason i like a physical keyboard over the touchscreen keyboard. And now the iPhone has a landscape keyboard. I don't know who has the advantage in this dept. - I have had nothing but excellent service from ATT and Apple. But if i go with the Pre i will be venturing into unknown territory. - The iPhone has a humongous apps store, but its filled with so much junk that i would never consider downloading. The only things i've downloaded on my iPhone are a few pay games. And i almost never use them. The main reason i have a smartphone is of course for the phone, an address book and calendar, music, and web browsing... not much more. I do use the world clock, stocks, and weather app on the iPhone a lot though, it is available on the Pre? - The Pre looks and feels of good quality, but not as good as iPhone. Does anyone know if the Pre's plastic surface scratches easily? I definitely like the iPhones glass screen better than the Pre's plastic surface. Seems like a screen protector on the Pre is an absolute must. - I sync my iPhone to my cars stereo. The Palm Pre doesn't have a dock connector, it has a micro USB. Does anyone know if there is a micro USB to female dock connector, and if the Pre would sync to an iPod capable device? What are your opinions or insight? So far it seems that the Pre has a lot of significant pluses while the iPhone only has a few insignificant pluses. But i am still leaning towards the iPhone because i am an Apple fanboy and have always used Apple computers. But with that said, please no fanboy comments like "Apple and Steve Jobs are my savior" or "You would never catch me using an Apple product". BTW, Does anyone know if the Palm Pre natively syncs to the Apple Address Book, and Calendar?
