It looks like AT&T is taking the Pre pretty seriously. An internal AT&T memo has been circulating around retail employees, listing some anti-Pre talking points.
I hate to say it, but AT&T got us on a few points, but a few are just down right derisory remarks at the Pre, at least in my opinion:
- Palm Pre is "Available in black only" where the iPhone is "available in Black or White"
- It's a fact that Apple's App store is doing pretty well, but to say that the Palm Pre has an "Unproven App catalog app store" is being too hasty. First off, early developers are saying that webOS lives up to its hype, coding in just html, css and java fits plenty of developers in webOS, and lastly, it's not even publicly released yet.
- "Touchscreen control gestures not intuitive." Doesn't the iPhone uses about the same gestures?
- "No global roaming, limited global GPS." on the Palm Pre. Just wait till you forget to turn on "international data roaming" on the iPhone(hint: your bill won't be pretty).
I'll leave the rest for our readers to debunk on...
