Last month after posting my thoughts about choosing my next smartphone I ended up switching to Sprint and went with the Palm Pre. It has been almost a month since then and now is a good time to put up a quick summary of my experience.
I have had the Palm Pre for a month now and I thought it would be a good time to write about my experience with it so far. So, here it is, my review of the Palm Pre.
I have been using the HTC Tytn for almost two years and my contract with my current carrier, T-mobile, expired in December. At the time the main options that I was considering were the Apple iPhone, T-mobile G1 or the HTC Touch Diamond. The HTC Touch phones run Windows Mobile (WinMo) and I wasn’t particularly excited because I have been using a WinMo 6 phone for a while. It gets the job done, but isn’t pretty or “finger-friendly.” The G1’s operating system was new, but the hardware wasn’t particularly exciting. Just when I was starting to seriously explore the iPhone, Palm announced the Pre. Looking at the initial videos of the Pre I decided to wait for it. Well, finally the Pre has been out for a month and it is about time for me to decide.
