A Mac Take on the Palm Pre

Jon Gruber’s review of the Palm Pre is quite fair to Palm and gives it a thumbs-up for treating users like adults. Given the average consumer, their refreshing attitude will probably not challenge the iPhone, but it will give the market a choice, and I’m all for that.

Palm has chosen a different trade-off than Apple in this regard, and it might help them carve out a segment of the market that the iPhone does not, and probably never will, appeal to — the “don’t treat me like a child, let me shoot myself in the foot if I want to, I despise artificial constraints imposed upon me” crowd. Some expert users will see the Pre’s stance as a huge win.
