Palm Pre vs Apple iPhone 3GS

Which smartphone suits your needs better?

O2 announced this week that it will be offering the Palm Pre in the UK before Christmas. But before you spend all your hard-earned cash on Palm's latest smartphone, we've pitted it against Apple's iPhone 3GS, to see just which will suit your needs.

Website creators can provide sites optimised for the iPhone and Palm Pre. They can be mobile-formatted websites in an application wrapper, like on the Pre above, or a fully native content app as shown on the iPhone above.
