Can Palm Pre be a threat to iPhone?
First came the iPhone from Apple and then the Android platform from Google. Lots of people thought that Android might give tough competition to iPhone but they were all wrong. Forget about giving tough competition it was not able to come anywhere close to iPhone. And, now comes the Plam Pre. The Palm Pre is the first non-Apple phone to incorporate a multi-touch interface.
The phone is not yet out in the market but has been in the news since Jan 2009. There are rumors that it’s releasing on 30th April 2009. However, it has started an early access program which is an opportunity for developers to test-drive and provide feedback on the Palm MojoTM SDK prior to its public release.
Can this one shake the competition? May be not.
- Its late in the market with no confirmed release date yet.
- iPhone already has more than 25,000 apps in the app store and a considerable size of developer community.
- With iPhone’s 3.0 release people will love it more than ever (Not the developers. App Store is a pain).
Let’s see if it can actually prove to be a competition, forget about giving a tough competition.
