AT&T debunks Palm Pre

Posted on by Mike Evans

PALM have been getting loads of coverage for their imminent Pre iPhone beater. I've read many of the stories and reviews of pilot units, but I did not realise some of the limitations of the Pre--in particular that it does not work on GSM networks and will not work outside the USA. As far as I can remember, this hasn't been mentioned in the publicity so far. This morning Engadget published an alleged leaked document from AT&T which compares the Pre (unfavourably of course) with the iPhone. It's a compelling list and has removed much of the interest in the Pre as far as I am concerned. It looks as though they have a long way to go to match Apple on this front, even if they eventually bring out an international version.
