And your point would be....??
Requirements of a real iPhone Competitor
People always look at new phones and say this one is really going to kill the iPhone but it turns out that it doesn't. One thing people need to know is for the phone to be a worthy iPhone competitor it needs to at least have multi-touch and just look at the Palm Pre. It's the most potential device to become crowned as a real iPhone killer
2. Nice UI
HTC phones really have nice UIs no exception about that. But LG phones usually look good on the outside but don't really look that good on the inside with there not-so-good UI since you also can't really use that much apps and the whole thing kinda sucks somewhat.
The Pre has a really nice UI finally making a update to their outdated OS but this time a huge update.
3. Nice OS with lots of apps
To compete you need to have a nice OS this is part of the UI thingy.
You need a OS that lots of apps support. The Pre has 32 apps but they are very useful and ar up to iPhone's most useful apps and exceed their usefullness sometimes. Still the Pre has a long way to go but if the Pre had 0,000 apps it would dominate the iPhone in number of downloads and usefulness. Also somewhat maybe the Pre might get slower in soem reasons since imagine running 50,000 apps on your Pre.
4. Fast specs
You need to have really fast processors and GPU and stuff like that
in the phone or else it will keep lagging like the HTC Hero and Blackberry Storm.
5. Something that the iPhone doesn't have
Yup you need something that the iPhone doesn't have. The Pre featuers multi-tasking and flash based web browser and nice OS for the cost of a .4-inch reduction of screen size
6. Accelerometer, Proximity Sensors, and Postition Sensors
Every iPhone competitor must have this or else they are not even allowed to be said as a iPhone competitor. The Pre has it and is a worthy competitor. Also it needs to respond fast and in the OS too
7. A high resolution camera with flash
The Pre has a 3-Megapixel camera with flash unlike the iPhone 3G S which has a 3 Megapixel camera with no flash. But the iPhone 3G S has a better video editing software for now. The Pre is getting a Adobe Photoshop video editor and picture editor. and it will get video recording
8. Something new
You need to bring in something new. The Pre brought in multi-tasking in the phone industry.
9. Better keyboard
you need to make a nice interface with a better onscreen or physical keyboard. The Pre has a physical keyboard but it somewhat isn't that good to use. The N97 has a keyboard but akward in a way. Wished they had the space bar at the middle. Seriously
10. TV Support
The iPhone lacks V support and if you bbring it to the competition it could make the phoen a worthy foe.
11. Capacative touchscreen
Resistive touchscreen would be cool if it was multi-touch but for now capacative is better. Capacative can detect how much energy you put in the display it self which is cool. Resistive features pressure sesnsetivity and energy thingy. Capacative is the real touchscreen though. You need capactive touchscreen. No tactical feedback or somewhat a better tactiacal feed back feature thna the ones they have rightn ow.
So far the Palm Pre has most of these or maybe all of them actually and is by fasr the best foe iPhone has fought
