Looks like Palm Pre is after Blackberry
Looks like bfpower is correct. Ars review essentially says they think Palm pre is more after the blackberry crowd rather than the iPhone. From the looks of it they are right, but I have to say that as an iPhone user they could easily entice me as well.
From the article:
My experience so far with the Pre is that it’s as good a messaging device as the iPhone is a media device. And while it has solid Exchange and push e-mail support, where webOS really excels—at least, for the moment—is in the way that it embeds the Pre seamlessly within the much-hyped “cloud” messaging ecosystem. This cloud messaging integration is most spectacularly showcased in the way that webOS handles contacts and instant messaging.
In all, Palm put as much effort into making the webOS a first-rate messaging experience as Apple did into making the iPhone a first-rate media experience, and with just as much success. So if most of your communication consists of Twitter, email, SMS, and IM with the people in your Facebook network and/or Gmail contacts list, then the Pre will do for your personal messaging what your work BlackBerry does for your business messaging.
Now if Pre can come out on a different network than Sprint.
