AT&T's iPhone vs. Pre comparison chart

Pre Central hold ahold on an internal "cheat sheet" that AT&T is distributing to its retail staff in anticipation of the launch the new Palm smartphone on the Sprint/Nextel network in the U.S.

Pre Central hold ahold on an internal "cheat sheet" that AT&T is distributing to its retail staff in anticipation of the launch the new Palm smartphone on the Sprint/Nextel network in the U.S. The document compares the upcoming Pre to Apple's iPhone on a feature-by-feature basis.

The Pre faithful are sure to be critical of a few of the items on AT&T's list:

  • The Palm Pre "Touchscreen control gestures not intuitive" whereas the iPhone features "Patented Multi-Touch screen" and "Fast and responsive navigation."  Hokay.
  • The iPhone sports a  "Thinner, lighter, bigger screen, metal and glass design" while the Pre is "Available in Black only; plastic casing."
  • The Pre gets knocked for not being a GSM world phone and "Limited free Wi-Fi access" because they don't get to use AT&T Hotpots.
  • The Pre has an "Unproven App Catalog app store."

If nothing more, the document is further evidence that the Pre release is imminent.
