palmpreAfter Palm announced the Pre last month, I gathered reactions from prominent tech blogs and Pinoy techies, particularly Apple fans. I never got to complete it.

Still, here are some comments that I managed to dump on a WordPress draft, as well as those I recently saved while browsing old blog entries:

“I like the hardware, the new OS looks pretty solid and the demo of the integrated contacts/phonebook thing that looks like they actually got syncing right! It looks really sweet. The only gripe I have is I dont like the way they designed the icons. Hahaha.”

-Jeff of Teknostik.com

“Nope! Not an iPhone killer! Hahaha.”

Angel, Steve Job’s no. 1 fan in Manila 😀

“Think iPhone, but flashier.”

Mobileshop.com

“As a proud card carrying member of the iPhone club, I pride myself on being ahead of the curve in mobile device land. Well, this little gleaming slickster, might give me a bit of competition with the Palm users.”

The Daily Marauder

“There are no downsides to this phone!”

Cris, an Engadget reader

  1. @Prudence, Not yet po. It will be available in the US before the first half of 2009 ends. Price estimates range from $199 to $499. Excited na nga ako. I hope it comes to Pinas soon after the US release. 🙂

    @Jeff, I was recently invited to try Xobni, an Outlook plugin which has a similar contacts integration method. It automatically gets a contact’s public details from Facebook and LinkedIn. You should try it if you haven’t yet. As for the header, I’ll probably use a Centro image first, since it’s what I’m using now. 🙂
