5 Best Palm Pre Features That iPhone Can’t Beat

Posted by jun auza On 7/23/2009
The Palm Pre is considered by many as the most potent iPhone-killer. It has a sleek design, a powerful OS, and a great numer of supported 3rd party applications.

Even though the iPhone is the most popular smartphone around and I'm quite impressed by some of its features, I still believe that Palm Pre beats the iPhone in certain important areas:

1. Linux-based webOS

With webOS, the Palm Pre offers true multitasking capabilities that will enable users to run multiple applications at the same time. You can easily and fluidly switch between running applications (just like swapping cards) on Palm Pre's touchscreen display. Meanwhile, the latest iPhone OS 3.0 still has a very limited multitasking feature.

2. Easily-replaceable battery

I strongly believe that every mobile phone should have a battery that can be easily replaced or swapped because we use our cellphone all the time and we all know that batteries don’t last that long. Unlike the iPhone, Palm Pre's battery door can be effortlessly opened, and without breaking the warranty.

3. A 3 megapixel camera with LED flash

Despite the fact that the newest iPhone (3G S) model also has a 3 megapixel built-in camera, it doesn't come with a LED flash. There’s no doubt that Palm Pre's camera has the advantage because you can take quality pictures even at night.

4. Sliding QWERTY keyboard

Even though I'm getting used to typing via the iPhone's multi-touch screen, I still prefer the physical keyboard of Palm Pre. It makes typing a lot faster and it saves the screen real estate, so it is a big plus for productivity.

5. Wireless Charging

Palm Pre can be charged in several ways. But one innovative method will let you charge it wirelessly using electromagnetic induction. Palm Pre comes with an optional wireless charging dock that is called "Touchstone". Now that's cool, isn't it?

It's no secret that the Palm Pre's main purpose is to revitalize Palm Inc's dying business and in effect bring down the iPhone Empire. But will it succeed? Only time will tell.
