I had originally planned to make yesterday's post my last. It was, after all, my 30th post. But, somehow I didn't get around to saying all I meant to.
While many things impressed me, and I had very few disappointments with the Palm Pre, I'm just going to touch on a few of the major things I liked and disliked.
While you can set individual ringers for your favorite contacts on your Palm Pre, the little bleep for texts, emails, and voice mails is the same.
In keeping with a review of the Pre's hardware durability, I wanted to touch on the little USB port cover, touch screen, battery cover, and lack of external micro-SD card.
I've been very impressed with the quality and sturdiness of the Pre. As much as I love this phone, I have to admit, I've already "dropped" it three times... Still working.
One of the features I did like about my old Instinct was threaded messaging. The Palm Pre takes threaded messaging a step further and pulls not only texts but Instant Messaging into the thread.
I snapped a picture, expanded to view it, then I told it to upload to Facebook. In seconds it was on my Facebook wall, just as if I'd uploaded it from my laptop to Facebook.
I think it's about time I write my comparison post. I've had the Pre a while now and I've officially said goodbye to the Instinct.
After three weeks of living with two phones, I've finally gotten the Pre on my own Sprint account. With my life all bundled up in one smartphone I'm finally gettin' in the groove.
While I normally find Sprint's customer service lacking on many levels, I've recently had three very nice technical support experiences.
