Palm Pre vs. iPhone

Friday, June 5th, 2009

I just heard about Palm Pre this afternoon on my way home through NPR. It loks like finally we got a competitor for IPhones. Palm is a great company who invented Palm Pocket PC or Parl Pilot.

I hope to buy an iPhone before but the subscription is a little bit expensice. Palm Pre is to be 30 dollars less than iPhone’s AT&T service through Sprint.
