Few days ago Gizmodo published a comparison between Palm’s newly unveiled Pre, iPhone and the G1. Since Windows mobile wasn’t included in that fightÂ MobileSpoon took the opportunity to recreate the comparison with Windows Mobile and RIM’s Blackberry included.
Quoting the final words of the writer:
The first place goes toâ€¦ both Windows Mobile and Palm Pre!
What a match it is going to be!
(Who would have thought that those 2 old rivals that struggled 10 years ago with green screen PDAs will meet againâ€¦)
Of course, everything here is completely subjective. Iâ€™m sure many people will still prefer the BlackBerry alternative, while some spoiled kids will still nag their dad for an iPhone.
Itâ€™s amazing that the good old Windows Mobile is still standing and fighting proudly, mainly thanks to great devices that hide the weaknesses of the old OS.
I know thereâ€™s a lot of mobile â€œpower usersâ€, freaks, and blogger with a worm corner in the heart for Palm. It leads me to believe that the Pre is going to be a hit. And if notâ€¦ wellâ€¦ thatâ€™s going to be a shame.
That is correct! We have a tie between Windows Mobile devices and Palm Pre. I will not say whether I agree with the result or the comparison itself (although I kind of do), but it is a good read and several points are mentioned.Â So go ahead and take a look at it and then tell us your opinion. Is a good interface enough to make you ditch the Windows Mobile platform?
