Impressions of the Palm Pre

So after a killer filling Chinese buffet lunch… which we swore not to do it again until a date after Sept 1, 2009, my friends and I visited the local Sprint store to check out the Palm Pre. I know it is like couple month late, but I am just curious to see what all the hype is about and if it is in any way a competitor for the iPhone. So my first impression is oh… it looks small and it looks pretty neat. The second thing I did was to poke and start opening applications. The first application I opened was the camera, and what did I notices? The camera application opened up really choppy. It almost seems like it is being interrupted by another process as it is opening. It was not a smooth and beautiful app open. This could very well be caused by the background processes. After that initial discomfort, I continue to open more apps and more apps, what I notices that the OS will let me open and running many apps all at the once. The speed for each just decreases slightly. I can very well see some potential problems with this.

With all plastic and plastic view screen, the phone just feels a bit cheap. The touch stone charger is really cool. The phone has a LED flash to support the camera and that is pretty cool too. The mirror on the back was worthless.

All in all, I would have to say that iPhone still won!!! Oh… I will probably not buy any Palm stocks anytime in the near future. I mean, if Palm is really depending on this phone to save their entire business, I hate to say it, but I think Palm’s end maybe near soon.
