Down Goes the Droid Incredible! Palm Pre Plus Triumphs Again!
Given the results of the March Smartphone Madness, maybe we should’ve seen this coming, but the fervor of the webOS community lifted the Palm Pre Plus over the Droid Incredible, 35,856 to 25,479, in our first Battle of Champions. Thanks to all who voted, and look forward to title challenges in the future!
Contrary to what some of you thought (and wrote), we weren’t pulling for one phone over another. We just thought it would be interesting to see what would happen if the winners from our two most recent contests squared off against each other.
We suspect that some commenters may have used aliases:
The Pre amazes people I show it to in the way Apple used to amaze people. If I were a Steve Jobs fan, I’d tell you it’s “magical” and “amazing”. Since I’m not, I’ll just point out that the phone gets the same great reception in either hand… oh snap!
Al Gore’s Ghost:
Not since I invented the internet have I seen something as advanced as the Palm Pre+. It’s the best phone ever, and it’s very green.
I have the Palm Pre (not plus) and due to being able to EASILY jailbreak and overclock this phone I’M LOVIN’ IT!!!!! I am running a 800GHZ processor by overclocking it and have had no problems. I have been able to add a lot of great patches to my phone by installing Preware. I am not computer savvy person but I do know how to read and Precentral.net gave me all the instructions to install these cool FREE programs.
As an EVO owner, I voted for the pre. If I could have the EVO with WebOS it would be my favorite phone ever.
I wish I’d thought of something as innovative as webOS. It’s what the iPhone could have been, and you can hold it in either hand. Brilliant!
I have a Pre Plus and my wife has the Incredible. Overall, WebOs is the best, most intuitive OS I have used. The gestures are simple and make sense, and the notifications are better than on the Incredible. The Incredible has better hardware, the Android Market has thousands of great applications, and the soft keyboard are great. However, I still think the Pre is better. The OS, the ability to use it as a mobile hotspot, the home brew community, and the Touchstone charger are the notable features that tip the balance in favor of the Pre.
With the Pre Plus, yes we can. With the webOS community, yes we can. In the laptopmag polls, yes we have, and yes we will. Time for change. and that change is to give webOS the love and respect it deserves. Droid is fine, webOS is superfine.
Yes we can!
