Sprint Palm Pre Preview: Details and Thoughts
Laura Sydell of npr.org took herself off to the Palm offices in Sunnyvale where she managed to get a preview of the Palm Pre smartphone, and she says she was impressed with the handset.
She goes on about the usual “fits in the palm” and nice touch screen and keyboard and stuff, and then says the key to the Palm Pre’s success is the software, the webOS, which she says is especially nice that it allows the user to keep open an email whilst searching the address book and calendar, and that being able to keep 3 windows open simultaneously is a real nice feature.
The upshot of her preview though is that she still isn’t too sure if the Palm Pre can save Palm, and it is difficult to imagine anyone would switch to Sprint just for the Palm Pre as it doesn’t have the loyalty base of the iPhone nor the sex appeal.
So, what do you think, will loads of iPhoners swap over to the Pre?
