Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Palm Pre Plus or Motorola Droid?

I currently own the palm centro and absolutely love it, however I am switching to verizon in a few weeks and cannot decide which phone to get. I have tried out both phones a bit in stores but find that the droid is too touchy when it comes to both the actual and touch keyboard which I find irritating and the keys are too far apart for my small fingers. I still love the small keyboard on the palm because its the perfect size for me. I know that the battery on either phone is pretty bad but that doesn’t really bother me. And both cameras are pretty good. My main concern are the applications. I don’t want to pay for any, especially a monthly fee (besides the $ 30 internet), and I can’t seem to find much information on the applications besides the fact that the droid has more but the games on the palm are better. I would really appreciate any information/personal experience on these devices. Thanks in advance 🙂

I’ve never owned a palm phone, so i’m a bit biased.. I do, however, own a motorola droid, and i love it. But if you already know how to use the palm software, you may want to stick with that instead.

The Pre.
Its not a good phone. Its a great phone! I have had mine since it first came out and it has exceeded my expectations.

Don’t take my word. Recently the Pre won best phone by laptop magazine and its the only phone EVER to get a 5 star rating from G4Tv. The droid only got 3.5 stars. Mainly the Operating System on the Pre called WebOs is amazing. It truly outshines droid and it is much more elegant. HP realized this and just bought Palm for 1.2 billion. They would not do that if it wasn’t any good, they feel its the best. Think about it, HP has some pretty technical people on staff and 1.2 billion is alot of money.

Pros: Free software updates. The pre will never be outdated. Palm adds features and functionality every few months and has had many more updates than droid. Plenty of apps over 6k and growing everyday. TRUE Multitasking, the card system works great and is fun and simple to use. Great camera, Operating system WebOs is very smooth and elegant. Palm allows you to tweak your phone and customize it for your needs. Universal search is an awesome feature on the phone. just start typing on any screen and it will search your phone/internet/google/wiki for what you are typing. Its great for pulling up a contact, search for a place to go, or any information. Saves time from opening up a browser then google, it automatically does it for you. Way cool. Last pro is the Keypad. Check out PreCentral, its a user community group for the Pre. I have read that droid can be difficult to use and figure out. So, if you are not a techie type then opt for the Pre. Its not that the Pre is not techie, its just WebOs is simply better and easier to operate.

Cons: But I think this is a con for any smartphone. Battery life. The phone does so much so battery life is lacking. Needs to be charged everyday. Back up batteries are cheap. Not bad idea to carry a spare. $ 40

Personally, I don’t have either one, but since you’ve had the Centro, you should get the Pre Plus. Smaller keyboard, and really sleek. But, i LOVE Android! But, i’d rather have Pre Plus. webOS, isn’t bad.
Good Luckz!

Answer by Sabrina
Palm was my first love.

I was so excited when I got the Palm Centro, I was sure that I would never use another brand. But I can tell you, you should switch to an Android phone. Here’s why:

KEYBOARD: yes the keyboard was something that I initially didn’t like but it is something you get used to. The flat/wideness of the keyboard was not a dealbreaker for me. If you prefer to use the onscreen keyboard and want a “Centro” feel, they actually sell a stylus for the Droid that mimics your fingertip. I don’t find that I have a problem the on-screen keyboard if I use it in wide mode though.

CAMERAS: Droid: 5MP vs Pre 3MP

The OS: Android is constantly updating; its OS. 2.2 supports Flash and you can install apps from the SD card. Meaning Android phones will be able to install games on the SD card that take up up a lot of memory= awesome gaming experience.

Droid:16GB pre-installed SD, expandable to 32GB. Increasing app store size (increased from 30k to 50k in the month of April)=customization galore. Plus they’re cheap (average ~$ 2.50) and over 60% of them are FREE, period. The only thing you pay for is if you buy and app. As far as the batter life, it depends on how much browsing, music playing etc you do but generally I hook it up when I’m in the car, at home and using the computer. Smartphones nowadays just are going to have shorter batter lives with the larger screen, etc. But never fear, Motorola always comes out with the extended battery soon after the release. Won’t be soon now. Current battery life: 6.4 talk/ 27hr standby. The response on the large multi-touch keyboard is incredible. Accuracy of Google Maps, with their turn-by-turn instructions.

Palm Pre: 3MP camera. 8GB internal memory w/o expansion options. Not voice command support. No multitouch. Less than 2k apps in store. Fewer supports of audio format. Battery: 5hr talk/ 300 standby. No digital compass.

The Droid is just an overall winner. You’d be buying the Pre for the keyboard. I have found all my Centro apps and more in the store; I only bought one. Go into a Verizon store and test them both out. You’ll see. It’s just better.

Hope this helps. Any questions, lemme know.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Palm Treo 680?

Ok… I should probably wait until I actually get the phone… but I’m so anxious! I just renewed my contract and I got to upgrade my phone. So any day now my Palm Treo will be here! Super excited!

I’ve never had a phone like this. Always just had the simple, basic, free phone that comes with the plan.

I was reading the reviews and looking at the user guide on the Cingular website. But the one thing i was wondering about (and didn’t see anything about) was putting pictures onto your phone… without using the phone’s camera. (Does that make sense?) I have picture saved on my computer that i’d like to use as the pictures for when different people contact me.

How do i get those pictures from my computer to my phone?

I’m sure I could wait and get this answer when i get my phone… but I just want to know now!

Answer by bd
Sync (with the included cable), bluetooth for sending via wireless from your computer, other devices, etc…., and Yahoo 2go which will sync your flicker photos with your device… Good luck and email if you have any questions.

I had also seen a fantastic amount of water, coming in shortly thereafter. I therefore notified the appropriate government authorities to warn them.
17 Hours after the quake, Hurricane Irene made landfall less than 300 miles from the epicenter of the Earthquake.
Damage estimates from this hurricane, throughout the United States were near $19.6 billion dollars, which made it the 5th costliness hurricane in United States history
The coastlines were evacuated and lives were saved because of this prediction and appropriate warnings.
