So, the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus have both now appeared on the US carrier Verizon. Are these the people with that odd CDMA or whatever it is standard? Is there another country in the world that also uses that phone standard?
There is a good deal via Verizon, buy a Pre and get a Pixi free. These are the specced up with bigger hard drive models that may also sport better build quality, certainly in the case of the Pre Plus anyway although that wouldn’t be too hard. All joking apart, the Pre and Web OS is a delight to use. You might think that having multi-tasking on your 2010 HTC Hero or latest WM device is the bees knees in sophistication but compared to the Pre’s card system you’re living in the 1990’s chums.
On my very nice Hero I never know what is running and have to pay infrequent visits to the 3rd party Task Manager app to see what’s happening even after purportedly closing an app via its in-menu…errr…menu. On the Pre, swiping a card up and off the screen very much kills it stone dead. It’s simple and it is elegant and it’s the way that modern smartphones should handle it…nae messing and get this, I can decide myself which apps to close. On Android and WM you don’t get the choice yourself of which apps that may be hogging memory should be closed, often the underlying OS will do it for you…how very uncivilised and barbaric in comparison.
