Palm Pre

5 June 2009
  • Conclusion: A most excellent start from Palm with their first new Web OS smartphone. The hardware is attractive and the Pre looks great, feels great (albeit slippery and fingerprint-y) and is smaller than the iPhone and many other touch screen smartphones. The phone is intuitive, fun and generally responsive, though there are occasional minor slowdowns.
  • Pros: Lovely new OS, fantastic looking capacitive touch screen, attractive, pocketable., Excellent capacitive touch screen that's vibrant. The OS is easy and fun to use with lots of eye candy. The Pre is very attractive, feels great in the hand and is relatively small for a smartphone. Good cloud syncing options and excellent email support. Great web browser, good GPS and Sprint Navigation is solid. Sprint's Everything plan means you can use all the Pre's pre-installed serv...
  • Cons: No local syncing, keyboard is so-so, fingerprint magnet., Keyboard isn't great, there are feature holes like no video camera, no on-screen keyboard and just about no 3rd party applications at launch. Fingerprint magnet to the max and slippery, though the Touchstone back cover helps (if you plan to buy that accessory).

Palm Pre review

  • Conclusion: Palm’s near death experience has had an impressive effect. The revitalised company hasn’t just updated its PDA for the twenty-first century, it has crafted a fun, practical and drop-dead gorgeous smartphone that stands close comparison with Apple’s iPhone. It could do with a speed boost, some interface tweaks and way more apps to download, but even as it stands, this is one fine touch-phone.
  • Pros: Sleek and compact, superb touch UI, multitasking, excellent organisational skills
  • Cons: Under-powered processor, short on software and storage, cut and paste is rubbish

  • Pros: El nuevo sistema operativo webOS, La calidad y luminosidad de la pantalla, La buena sensibilidad a nuestras pulsaciones
  • Cons: El nivel de acabado de algunas partes no está a la altura de un terminal de su gama, La autonomía de la batería es limitada, debido sobre todo a su consumo de datos
