Re:Palm Pre: the 1st REAL iphone competitor has arrived

move along blackberry, nokia, windows mobile, lg, and G1, the real iphone competitor has finally arrived.
Palm, the uncle of all things pds/smartphone-related, has stepped-up to raise the game levels to new heights. with their newly announced Palm Pre at CES, they may have a winner here. apple better keep an eye on this formerly old has been. no wonder Bono just handed over his $100 million to help out Palm just this past december.
this new Palm wireless charging + user-replaceable battery sounds appealing but aside from some features the apps seemed to have been taken straight from the iphones unlocked library and app store. on the other hand, this is the best iphone copycat so far. it's the iphone/G1/blackberry/HTC all rolled into one clean-looking frankenstein. they even copied an unlocked app known as quickgold app (a program launcher/search engine)and natetrue's Dock jailbreak app
looking at the present development, apple truly did revolutionize the mobile computing and hardware with the release of the iphone. i challenge anyone to name smartphone/gadget w/out a single element influenced by it sine the iphone debut. that being said, this new move by palm just picked-up on apple's ballgame. for us, it's definitely a huge benefit. that's because the future of our most beloved iphone is now brighter than ever. just imagine the possibilities... :)

what do you do?
im an eng mechanic, i put myself through some messy situations on a daily basis. fortunatly becasue the iphone has no solid keyboard i have a hardcase the protects the entire thing from shock and such and i can still use my touch screen (its a thermal touch screen no need to press)

ill take it out of the case from time to time clean it and its amazing to see how well it protected my phone from damage

whats the OS in this things?

I really love symbian and winblows ppc because they are easy to code with the sdk's. Unlike the Iphone, I was stuck with java :(

its promising in its own little way but not a serious threat. i think it will benefit future iphone owners because apple is likely to react by apply what they shouldve in the first place come newer firmware or the next iphone

over 50% of storms get returned. they hurried the production of that phone and its shown in the reviews

the pre looks pretty good but its going to be hard to get me to switch from my bb
