PDA phone: Is Palm Pre better than iPhone?...

iPhone, get out of the way!
During two years, iPhone was the best smartphone with multiple functions in the world. But now there is a new touch-screen smartphone that features a better technology: the Palm Pre.
Surprisingly, Palm, which is a company that seemed to have been forgotten in these times, has released a gadget that is more powerful, more elegant and easier to use. The Pre, which is available for sale in United States at the Sprint stores for about $200 (with contract), makes easier a lot of things; things that users want to do quicker.
WebOS, the new Palm operating system, allows to open and work with several applications simultaneously. The programs are organized as an array of bars that stick out from the screen and users can go from an application to another by sliding the finger. For example, if you are writing an e-mail and you want to see a calendar, then you can toggle between the e-mail application and the calendar easily, and whenever you want.
On the other hand, with the Apple iPhone, you can only open an application at one time. And if you need to toggle from an e-mail to the calendar, then you must close the e-mail application in order to open the calendar by using the main menu.
