Sure Palm Pre is better than this, but any phone nowadays is that as well. N97, Omnia HD and Satio (all flagship Symbian Touch phones from the world's 3 biggest phone companies) completly blow both Iphone and Palm out of the water.
No radio, no card slots, weak video recording (if at all), no secondary camera, low screen resolution, no multitasking and locked sim-card and battery (Iphone only) are some huge lacks, disadvantages, and drawbacks, which any of them I certainly wouldn't stand out having in my Symbian phone.
Sorry Palm, sure you did a good try, and indeed defeated the 2 year old Iphone tech-wise, but shouldn't you have higher goals than that???
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009What's the idea of calling a phone "3G", and not having a video call option???The uses the HSPA network to transfer data. 3G is not only intented for video applications.
Hey people! This device is built for Iphail. It's even more expensive than the N97, and we all know which is better quality wise!!! Insane fanboyism is the only reason to buy this phone.

hahaha this POS phone has 5 year old features, it's for 3rd world countries.
Thanks to these wonderful reviews, i will go ahead and buy the Palm Pre today, matter of fact im leaving rite now to do some multi-tasking on the Palm Pre. Apple lovers, get over it! theres a new lover in town, Palm Pre!
wow iphone 3gs is rly cheap in switzerland. i cant believe i found something cheap in switzerland its a miracle
1 U.S. dollar = 1.0823chf
40chf/month and 179chf for 2yr contract or 329chf for 1yr contract
and if u get unlimited plan = 99chf/month plan u just pay 29chf for iphone 3gs
lol iphone sales must be doing poorly
this was gna b the decider for me between the new iphone and the palm pre. now without a doubt i will get palm pre. they only put a compass in the phone. wtf do i need that 4? i can read maps. a slightly faster processor and slighlty longer battery life, yet they exclude the ability to multitask. and they hv convinced the remaining iphone fans that multitasking is bad, it drains battery life. "shockingly" they hv not thought of just not multitasking if they dont wna drain battery life. the least apple cud hv done was use an AMOLED display - this wud also help the battery life. but no. they will continue to introduce about 2 features at a time so every1 who owns 1 feels they need to get the next 1.
the days of apple being creative and coming up with interesting ideas r over.
All fine and dandy but has the call drop outs been improved. I know they brought the 2.1 update out but the fixed some but not all of those problems.
These are amazing phones for everything but..well...erm...phone calls!
At least in the UK on o2 anyhow.
what about the processor? and the price tag in egypt or other countries but the US??? and what about the AMOLED screen u have been talkin about???? actually, am depressed, i dont feel big difference between 3G and 3GS :S:S:S
its retarded to make a new phone that inherits the same shell as the old one. especially when u have only 2 current offerings, Apple.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009Compass ?
The biggest drawback on on iphone is that when it hangs (some instruments very ofte... moreit just wudnt be apple without the hanging
but it looks gud and 4 apple fanboys thats all the matters to them. also dont forget dropped calls. v practical in an emergency.
maybe they cud use it as a distraction in an emergency, or maybe they wud learn their lesson the hard way.
Just to add in i should say they WILL cost or ARE EXPECTED TO COST as they are about to be realeased soon :)
In UK the 3G S is more expensive than N97.
3GS costs £538.30 for 32 GB on o2.
N97 Costs £499.99 (32 GB unlocked!!!)
On a contract 3G S is more expensive too.
On an 18 month contract 3GS costs £175.19 on £44.05/month o2 tariff (trustedreviews.com News)
The N97 (18 month)is FREE on £45/month contract (Vodafone.co.uk)
Now many ppl may not like Vodafone but im sure N97 will cost less with other carriers considering the big price differnce between the two
