Very interesting, I like the fact that they were able to improve performance on the 3g model just with software alone. That shows that they are just not bullying new performance with higher physical specs and actually working on the package as a whole. If they can do that on the mobile platform I cant wait to see what Snow Leopard does for the Mac.

Its nice for once to see a company make non-bloated claims of performance and then have the product out perform them.

i hate the keyboard on the pre and the looks but overall its a good phone. I hate to say it but every comparison ive seen web speed wise the pre has beaten the iPhone 3g s. Not to say it makes me dislike mine at all i still love it but i have yet to see it win.

Yeah the keyboard is pretty lame, and I actually prefer a hardware keybord.

Interesting... I wonder.... if they both had the same speed, which would most people pick? iPhone hands down. I would however consider putting the pre software on the iPhone

yes the Pre software would kick ass! Unfortunately the iPhones battery would only last for about 20 minutes......

The only thing i would take from the pre is the multitasking they can keep everything else.

I have no desire for multitasking as most of the time it seems like I already have it. I leave the net, mail, texting, and others to go get info from some other program and go back right to where I left. I know I'm missing something but I had it with the Ipaq 211 for almost a year and for my uses I haven't missed or noticed it at all.
