Anonymous, 12 May 2010Ah, good, another reply from the delightfully observant Mo. If you read my original reply, Mo,... moreIt shouldn't be given a chance ed because it will be dominated by any other phone.
[deleted post]Ah, good, another reply from the delightfully observant Mo. If you read my original reply, Mo, you'll probably note that I didn't actually make any claims as to the quality of the Palm system, merely that it was claimed by some as a competitor to the Iphone. My point was that it was never actually given the chance to compete, regardless of how good or bad it might be.
better than the iphone lol ,it was the iphone 3gs coming conference held a day before the sprint palm pre released that ruined there sales.folks decided to hold out and wait for the iphone 3gs instead.no long lines .
This phone is kool.
The live os beat out the iphone os by 10,000 miles.
The iphone is only popular but it's techless.

Poor marketing has killed what is arguably the best phone operating system out there. What a shame. UK customers cant be expected to wait for this phone any longer with its now outdated hardware when we have the Xperia X1O and the Nexus 1 available now and with Windows Phone 7 and the iphone 4 around the corner. Sorry Palm you have killed yourself.
what are you guys talking about?! the phone isn't ugly at all IMO. it's actually a pretty unique form for a phone nowadays.
adnan, 11 May 2010its gonna be better than an iphone...................Everything is better than an iphone... even my 10 years old nokia 7650. The only poblem is that my 7650 is a little bit uglyer. But... just a little.
[deleted post]It's about to go to clearance in the UK not because of lack of quality but because they took so damn long to launch it that everyone got bored. It was like 9 months behind the US launch with zero marketing support and Palm misread the market by allowing O2 to have exclusivity on it. It was touted as a genuine competitor to the Iphone and it's not too far a mental leap to suggest that O2 didn't market it as well as they might have done lest it interfere with the cash cow that is the Iphone as they had exclusivity on that too.

That has to be one of the most generalised statements for explaining something I've ever read, and you're telling me?
Noman, 11 May 2010Yes it's very ugly which is one of the reasons it didn't sell enough.No, it's not ugly, don't generalize your opinion. The biggest issue was the lack of quality of the first model, probably already fixed on this one. Anyway, I would go for the pixi plus anyday, even if the pre sounds more beefy... but the price sounds a bit too much!
