Prizefight: Palm Pre vs. MyTouch 3G

CNET pits the Palm Pre against the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G in an epic Prizefight.

I know that you're finding it unbelievable that CNET has a Prizefight with touch-screen cell phones that doesn't feature the iPhone. Rest assured, though, we've done just that. After reviewing the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G last month, I began to wonder how it would stack up against the competition. The iPhone was a natural choice, but Apple device and the T-Mobile G1 had already done battle so I didn't want too much of a repeat. That led me to the Palm Pre as the ideal candidate. Bonnie Cha and Brian Tong joined me as judges, and we put the two handsets in the ring.

The Pre endured a narrow loss to the iPhone 3GS last month, but I knew it would put up a good fight to the second Google Android handset. Both offered a lot--the Pre has its multitasking and the MyTouch its customization--but the phones remain relatively well-matched in terms of features. So which is better? You'll have to read on to find out.
