The start up of the Palm Pre seemed to be slow but we are unaware if this phone was the updated webOS version. The Palm Pre took over 1 1/2 minutes to start up. But when we got to web browsing, Palm blew away the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS in that department. Palm Pre also beat the iPhone in photo taking and emailing. The Palm Pre bested both iPhones in the main two tests but the start up time was abysmal.

Kevin Rose has a good track record when it comes to Apple rumors. Last night during a live Diggnation show at SXSW in Austin, he excites iPhone users with crumbs of what's to come in iPhone OS 3.0. What we got from Kev so far is copy and paste and features that "bring it up to speed with the Palm Pre stuff". What we know for sure is that it can't do full multitasking with its current hardware. In addition, no MMS, no Video and no Background Apps -- at least for 3.0. Will iPhone 3.0 have synergy, pre-thinking technology, notification bar or universal search? Maybe, maybe not. Could this be good or bad news for Palm? We won't know for sure until the 17th. Video after the break.
T3, a magazine based in Europe for tech and gadgets has released a list of 100 hottest gadgets on the planet right now. And you guess it, the Palm Pre came in at first place followed by sony x-series walkman. With the popular iPhone 3G coming in at 14 and the Android G1 at 33. Here's a snippet from T3:
"Everything about the Pre has been thought about, worked on and buffed to a sheen. Even the Touchstone charging panel – an accessory that wirelessly docks the Pre and refuels by contact alone – is exciting. As far as we’re concerned, the Pre is the hottest, most mouth-watering piece of gadgetry on the planet today.
Its UK launch can’t come soon enough."
Couldn't agree more.
