Question Is Pre dead with new Touch Flo 3D?

After reading this interesting article, I was curious to see what you think... Is the Pre dead based on the advancements made by HTC in their new, updated Touch Flo 3D?

I would have to see this synergy in action. Sounds like a good idea, but how well does it work? Does it always push when it should?

Re: Is Pre dead with new Touch Flo 3D?

I may be off base here, but that article was pretty stupid. They start off by attacking the Pre and stating that it is already delayed. The best sources available indicate it will be released May 17, which is well within "the first half of the year." Furthermore, the only feature that they actually compare is between Palm's Synergy and TouchFlo2's ability to open a facebook page. And while this is just my own opinion, Synergy's ability to automatically fetch info from facebook, integrate it directly into your contacts and keep them updated is leagues above just having a button to open the actual page. The time and usability benefits are clear to me. Seems like the author is fishing for controversy, but completely fails at it.

Re: Is Pre dead with new Touch Flo 3D?

Re: Is Pre dead with new Touch Flo 3D?

TF3D is just makeup on a pig. WebOS is a complete OS built from the ground up thinking in 2008/2009 terms, not a re-badged OS from years ago playing catchup.

HTC has basically saved MS with its innovations, but it is nothing but a sad testament to how out-dated WM6.x is compared to the competition. And I don't think WM7 is going to be all that either... And I say all of this with nothing but love for WM, lol but Palm is going to do very well for the market. (Btw, I think SPB jumped the shark too with SPB MS 3.0 today...way too many options now, gone is simplicity).

Simply emulating "synergy" as a UI overlay is not a true accomplishment.

Re: Is Pre dead with new Touch Flo 3D?

i think the pre is already dead before it was even released ...to me it is more of the hardware then the OS ..any OS will work with the right eyecandy. but the lack of hardware on the pre ( i was wishing for more ) and the look of the device killed it ..reminds me of the blue angle wich to me was a very ugly phone ....as for the IPHONE the reason people like it so much is the fact of the screen size and how thin its body is..its all about the look to normal consumers ( not PPCgeeks ) you could have put WM6.1 with TF2D on the IPHONE and it would have been a big seller ....what i dont get is why a company like HTC cant make a phone thin and big screen like the iphone ? boggles my mind ...

Re: Is Pre dead with new Touch Flo 3D?

I actually think the opposite. For many people TF3D is very frustrating and drives them to look elsewhere.

I'm not saying TF3D is a bad interface but it's not for everyone. As long as HTC includes it free on the handhelds, it will remain the most popular .

It's also hard to compare it to the Pre especially since the Pre hasn't really been released and there aren't alot of complete and thorough reviews on it yet.

Which is why I voted no. Palm didn't half *** on if from what I've read & if the developers like it then thats a huge flag of success. I think this will "out hot" alot of phones but its needs to be advertised, moreso than the instinct & feature blasting commercials like the iPhone.

The Web OS concept is very intriguing.
