Palm Pre: A Smartphone with Potential

Posted on: September 21st, 2009 by Marylyn Barber

The good: Multi-tasking, nice cameraThe bad: Battery life, no FLASH support, no CAMCORDER, can't foward text messagesSummary: I've been with Sprint for about ten years and this is the first phone I've purchased that I wasn't pissed off after I bought it. The Palm Pre has so much POTENTIAL to be a great phone with software UPDATES! The battery drains too fast, I have to keep my charger with me where ever I go. I can't wait for FLASH support. Definitely needs a CAMCORDER!! The CAMERA is great but needs more features, but extremely FAST!!! Takes great pictures in low light.

Palm Pre

Posted on: September 16th, 2009 by Jen H

The good: easy internet accessThe bad: I HATED this as a PHONE. Contacts are listed by last name only, touch screen was slow but sensitive so you end up calling people you don't want to. Swithing from one call to another was a real chore, horrible dropped calls. Great concept but needs a lot of work. The keyboard is difficult to slide also and very crowded. Ringer volume did not go loud enough to hear unless you are in a very quiet setting, earpiece volume same way. Battery did not last long if you use the phone. Summary: I bought one as did a friend and we both returned them. As a mini computer it was great but as a phone it was horrible.

The good: Good display, webOS is awesome, has a great browser.The bad: Needs an on - screen, when you slide it up it feels a little wobbly.Summary: Overall it is a great phone. Once it gets more apps and an on screen keyboard this phone will be the really deal.

Great Phone

Posted on: June 23rd, 2009 by Jordan Gensler

The good: The OS, Speed, basically everything.The bad: App Catalog is small, but is growing. Battery life is ok.Summary: Very very nice device. The Operating System is just amazing. The speed of the device was improved with the new 1.0.3 software update. The fact the palm keeps on updating the system is very nice. There are a few good apps in the catalog, but need some more. The slider on the phone is great, even though the keyboard is small, I find it very easy to type on. Overall, a great device.

Baby device, that will grow quite nicely

Posted on: June 22nd, 2009 by Veronica Shelton

The good: Nice feel, great interface, perfect for multitasking like OMG!, great apps (so far), great picture, 100% responsive to touch, very organized, always being updated OTA which is GREAT!, the list goes on...The bad: Sharp edges on keyboard, battery life tends to commit suicide, slight glitches when too many apps are open, cannot end conference call without ending all calls PERIOD!, no smileys, small catalog of apps, hard to personalize launch pages, no video camera, small keyboard, no personalized ring tones for texts, or notifications BLA!, no OTA downloads for like myxer or anything, after too much use you can pretty much make eggs on the back of it. Summary: This phone is a wonderful piece of equipment, it not only allows you to multitask but it also allows total freedom to what you choose to do. It works great with business savvy to young adult tech-heads. You can even open your PDF files and documents on the go. So whether its homework, lesson plans or business plans, its all at your fingertips LITERALLY! This phone is also a pretty good media device, with its hot application 'Pandora' and its already programed youtube and amazon its impossible not to find what your looking for, and with GPS navigation you pretty much can never get lost in the crowd. This phone provides you with everything you can possibly need, I call it the iberry pre because it like the love child of the iphone and blackberry. Again it is a beautiful piece of equipment that I am sure will be upgrade and updated to pure gadget perfection in no time.

I Never Write Reviews, But There are Some Things About the Pre that People Should Know!

Posted on: June 8th, 2009 by M. Price

The good: Cool looking. Nice interfaces. Beautiful screen. Compact design. Multiple screens can be open at once. Good phone reception (as compared to Blackberry).The bad: Battery drains in 3-4 hours of regular use. Email interface is S-L-O-W. Weird things go wrong intermittently, with no rhyme or reason: For example the keypad works in my voicemail program sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't. Not enough apps yet--Facebook, eBay, games etc, but hopefully that will come soon. Speed dial requires pull down keypad--hard when in a hurry, which is, after all, the point of SPEED dial. Setting up email was an 11-hour nightmare for me. So was transferring my contacts.Summary: This phone is definitely a mixed bag. It is cool, no doubt, but it is temperamental, slow, and idiosyncratic, and I think over time it may drive me nuts for daily use.Here are some strange things: Email must be web-based, because when you click to open an email, it takes about 10 seconds for you to be able to access the text of the email. Irritating. The contact list is similarly slow. It does not just pop up.For someone used to the speed of Blackberry for contacts and emails, this is irritating.The battery is definitely an issue. People work 8-10 hour days, not 3-4 hour days. This morning, my battery was drained before noon. This will not be good.That said, I intend to give this a real try for my 30-day trial period, and we'll see.I have an iTouch, and so I know what that is all about. This is not an "iPhone killer", and I'm not sure it will "save Palm."
