What is so good about the Palm Pre?
The Palm Pre smartphone, just what’s so good about it? Well the guys over at zdnet had a play with the Palm Pre and say the experience and some functionality is amazing, but when it comes to text entering its another story.
They reckon the Palm Pre keyboard is a “major disappointment” and just may turn out to be the Palm Pre’s “Achilles heel,” and that the Apple iPhone onscreen keyboard is far better.
The Palm Pre’s keyboard is similar to that of the Palm Centro with rubber sticky keys on a central panel; it felt cramped and so may be an issue for some people.
Apple is pushing out an Apple iPhone hardware update in June while there is still no confirmed release for the Palm Pre, and so the Palm Pre may just be overshadowed by the Apple iPhone update.
What is so good about the Palm Pre? Well apparently not its keyboard.
