PICS: Side by Side: Palm Pre vs. iPhone 3G
Now that the June 6 launch date and the $300 (before a $100 mail-in
rebate) price tag is official for the Palm Pre, it is time to take a
closer look at how the Pre compares to the iPhone 3G.
When the Palm Pre was first announced in January at the Consumer
Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it offered features like universal
search that scans contacts on the phone and the web, copy-and-paste
and multi-tasking that were not available on the iPhone 3G.
But in March Apple closed the gap significantly. The iPhone 3.0 update
to be released this summer would bring many of the Palm Pre’s features
to the iPhone.
It’s an even contest for now.
Though Sprint’s network ranks third among the big carriers, Palm Pre
users in some areas will have access to Sprint’s 4-G network.
AT&T, the exclusive carrier for the iPhone is not expected to
start rolling out its 4-G network until next year.
Meanwhile, the iPhone trumps in the App store. Apple and AT&T have
advertised the independent applications available through the store
heavily. And, so far, despite attempts by competitors such as
Research in Motion’s the BlackBerry App World store, the iPhone’s App
store is still far ahead in the choices it offers. Though Palm has
launched its own app store, we’ll have to wait and see how successful
it is gathering developer interest.

I think I read somewhere that somewhere in the vicinity of 3500 iPhone apps
can be loaded and operational on the Pre.
