Today, we take a quick look at a key difference between the Palm Pre and the Apple iPhone, and it is likely to be in the form of the follow-up services that the user may opt for. While both are touchscreen devices, the iPhone sports a 3.5 inch screen while the Pre has a 3.1 inch screen. However, the key difference may very well lie in the way the devices are meant to be used. Palm’s new webOS works on the Synergy framework. Simply stated, you can arrange to have Synergy automatically update the Palm Pre with information from websites, and it is likely that the user can pick and choose which updates to go for.
On the other hand, the iPhone directs consumers towards its own AppStore, iTunes and MobileMe services. In other words, the Apple iPhone directs customers towards its own applications whereas the Palm Pre may very well permit a lot of third party vendors to create widget-like programs for the Pre.
