iphone, G1 and Pre... what do they have in common? Well, there's the hype each one has created; that is goog! The bad? The three of them lack soooo many things... Why can´t they just pack them with decent specs to make the hype worthwhile? The pre confirms my point...No radio, no video capabilities, no secondary camera, no card slot, etc? WTF??
Love the demo the gave on the Jimmie Fallon Show last nite. The new wireless charger is a plus. No holes to poke into.
good work palm, i am really waiting for this phone. pls palm launch this great device asap
darthrevan13, 09 Mar 2009Okay, it may not be a 12.1 MP phone with a wide display angle, xenon, stereo speakers, swappab... moreYou say Palm pre is great soft.Ok it is.But every new soft. was great.All cool software staff in Palm pre will be in other phones like an Apps.We will see them no the iphone or win or symb. or android.The software is illusion only hardware has mater.If you make great soft for stereo sound what can you do with one speaker.
So Palm pre for me is the next soft illusion as others soft before.They will make own apps and so on...
Then maybe Android will make the same.And then someone else.i don't want more "clever" soft 'cose it is clever for people that make it,but not for me.Everyone has own understanding.But everyone want's stereo speakers,very long battery life,100gb memory or more,max great camera with xenon flash,fast cpu.Whit such a great hardware i can use every kind of soft ideas.
So Palm pre for me is a bad or like most of others bad hardware device and it is only different way to make ordinary things, like Palm pre organizer for ex.
It's shame for them. 2009 want more freedom more quality and everything to work with everything everywhere.
Thing of this all cd players to use different size cd - madness.This is gsm evolution today - madness.
I will be happy with great hardware and software freedom.Palm pre is a weak hardware and no software freedom,and what kind of sex can someone make with this "sexy" phone?
What?¡ No card slot, no HSCSD, fixed focus cam with no video capabilities and no secondary camera?¡? no radio?¡? IE?¡? WebOS had better be far beyond totally amazing!!
名無, 06 Mar 2009According to Palm, Palm Pre will support video with their third party softwares, not much info... moreOkay, it may not be a 12.1 MP phone with a wide display angle, xenon, stereo speakers, swappable card, HD recording like the Omnia HD or even recording at full HD like no other phone can at this time, it does not project videos like the Samsung i7410 phone as well, it does not feature a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor or 1.5 Ghz dual-core Snapdrogon as well and no Hi-Fi audio...BUT THAT ALL DOES NOT MATTER, if you want a camera then buy one, not a phone that can't even compare with a true camera, if you want a video recorder buy one, it can even record at 120 fps in HD, you want a music player, get an Apple..this is is a SMART PHONE...that means you should be able to easily browse the web, make phone calls,and install programs to do my work with no bugs, crashes or something like that...jeez...it isn't the hardware that matters, you could have the best specs in the world but it depends on how you can take advantage of them, in our computers today the limitation is the damn software, if there is somebody intelligent enough to make a good piece of software that is very ergonomic, easy to use then even and fast then productivity can increase, a computer or a smart phone can run up to 1000% faster and is more responsive if the programmer did his/her homework, no kidding...I have to admit that it is hard to do such a thing being a programmer myself, but this phone has a fine piece of software and has great potential, it is a major step forward and for those at Palm you have my deepest appreciation for the Palm WebOS, it's truly genius....
Jhon, 06 Mar 2009Are you blind?!!What iPhone killer?!!No video rec.No video out.No video projector.No divx.No s... moretrue it doesnt hv those features but does an iphone killer truly need those features? i mean the iphone has made user-replaceable batteries a feature. the bluetooth on iphone is a joke. MMS is absent on iphone. iphone has an even worse camera (2mp with no flash). also the keyboard on iphone is too small. iphones lack of features that were on phones before it was anounced is shocking yet everyone now compares the new phones to the iphone. webOS looks like a v gud OS. this is the only phone that can charge wirelessly altho its not v important, its small things like that that will make a dif for some ppl. flash support for its browser is there and this is not on iphone nor winmo. this has a gesture pad which is unique. ur rite that while it doesnt hv gr8 features it has some unique features and has far more features than iphone so yes it is an iphone killer in that aspect. but the ppl who buy iphone r not looking for the features.
According to Palm, Palm Pre will support video with their third party softwares, not much information are given...and Mojo will be easy to use...Palm webOS comes with applications, I've never actually seen a phone that came without applications.
There's no perfect phone in this world, there'll be advantages and disadvantages and companies will "fix" it on their next newer model, with new disadvantages...
about the issue that some people are not happy about Palm Pre for "no video projector"...I've never seen a phone that's capable of projecting videos/images like a video projector...
I would say, it is not perfect. But yes, it will take some iPhone market. At least it has a Bluetooth that is not a joke, IR, better resolution camera with flash, MMS. It dont has some features like film recording... but iPhone neither. Nice design, nice hardware, and for sure a hard fight with Symbiam, Mac OS and oogle to conquer software developers.
Are you blind?!!What iPhone killer?!!No video rec.No video out.No video projector.No divx.No stereo speaker Bad camera only fullish 3mp.No 30gb memory or more.No applications.What can you do with this in real.Only very good promo for this device and we all become blind.And why is this kbs
when you have touch.This device is a step behind and we are so blind.Something really better will be with no moving parts and buttons,with video projector,with speech control,with smooth video recording,with great camera and more more more memory.Everyone knows what is great device but no one can't see it.Why?!!
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2009Wait,
does this phone AT LEAST have a flash?
i have a real problem with this phone if it d... moreYes, it has a flash! :)
And it is a lot thinner than previous Treos, so don't worry about that. :)
does this phone AT LEAST have a flash?
i have a real problem with this phone if it does not have that.
And i hope the phone is not as big and bulky as the treo was, because I love bringing my phone with me to clubs and a big bulky phone will pop out of my pockets all night long!
Finally Palm OS with wi-fi!! This is my dream phone!!! Any idea how much will this baby cost in singapore??
