Palm Pre vs iPhone 3GS: Let Battle Commence

The iPhone 3G S has arrived and with it comes a big challenge to the Palm Pre. On face value the iPhone 3G S doesn’t look much different from the iPhone 3G, but on the inside is where it all takes place.

So how does the iPhone 3G S compare against the Palm Pre asks pcworld, the main difference being for the same price of a 16GB iPhone 3G S the Palm Pre offers a lowly 8GB, and the lowering of the 8GB iPhone price to $99 is surely going to cut into Palm Pre sales.

Oh the other hand, the Palm Pre does better on the data plan front, as AT&T hasn’t reduced their iPhone tariffs, so the Palm Pre wins in that area.

But probably the biggest difference is the iPhone 3G S ability to record 30fps video with audio by simply switching from still to video.

The battle of the smartphones has now begun, which will you opt for?

    I disagree. The main difference is multitasking and synergy of calendars and contacts which pre offers and iPhone doesn’t. As a communication device and organizer, pre is superior. As a “cool toy” iPhone wins. Depends on what you’re looking for.

    Video? You cannot be serious. If it were HD maybe, but VGA? Come on. IMO the Iphone is still trying to catch up to the Treo 600 series in basic features.
