In this article we will compare the Pre and the iPhone 3GS head-to-head so you can get a good idea of their similarities and differences, and in the end, hopefully you will have a better feel for which one is right for you, assuming you haven’t committed yet to one or the other. Either one is a winner, in our opinion...

the iphone will eventually be w/ a legit carrier soon fcc is making the iphone go to all carriers eventually. at&t sucks all they have is an iphone their coverage is horrible and if you all saw pc worlds article on speeds between the 2 the pre won 2 out of 3 for quickness. Once sprint gets an iphone i will think about it until then i will enjoy my pre. At&t bought cingular and they think they are special do your homework and you will see yourself in the united states verizon or sprint are the best and sprint makes it affordable.

It's just a dual Apple tax, people. Palm grabbed an ex-CTO from Apple and popped out a mirror copy of the first-gen iPhone, hardware-wise, but thrown into a slder the feels like a cheap Chinese knock-off with the worst keyboard to ever grace a smartphone. They do everything to repeat Apple's first gen mistakes, but deliver nothing new. WebOS has a glorified task launcher. That's it. The iPhone is an iPod that can make calls on a ludicrously expensive data plan to counteract its "subsidy." Only Apple, it seems, could give people a phone lacking in basic features available on almost every other smartphone, and some feature phones, and they will buy it like gangbusters. Can it tether? Send MMS? Transfer files over Bluetooth? Multitask? Both phones lose. WinMo and Android beat WebOS and iPhone OS, easily. Open-source beats gimick any day.
