Palm Pre ( UK version)

CNET
7 October 2009
  • Summary: The Palm Pre matches the iPhone for touchscreen innovation, offering a user interface whose gesture and multi-touch capability make for a genuinely finger-friendly phone. The physical keyboard is handy, if you can get to grips with its tiny keys, but the App Catalog needs some serious attention
  • Pros: Clear, vivid display; responsive touchscreen; useful physical keyboard; well-designed, beautiful user interface; Synergy app brings together contacts from the cloud; comfortable to hold and make calls with; good connectivity, including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
  • Cons: Keyboard may be too small for some; short battery life; apps can be sluggish to load and phone is slow to boot; no memory-expansion slot; no on-screen keyboard; shelves are bare in the App Catalog.

Palm Pre (Sprint)

PC Magazine
6 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The Palm Pre is the sexiest handset since the iPhone—and it also marks the dawn of a major new smartphone platform. Although it lacks third-party apps and has some battery life issues, it's much more fun than any other phone Sprint offers.
  • Pros: Excellent design. Very cool interface. Synergy feature consolidates e-mail, contacts, and calendars. Syncs with iTunes just like an iPod.
  • Cons: Very few third-party apps at launch. So-so reception. Short standby battery life. Limited IM apps.
