Get Smart! The Next Generation of Smartphones Is Here

The Pre is a real competitor for the iPhone

Tuesday, June 09, 2009

The iPhone is getting cheaper. Yesterday Apple announced it was slashing the price of the current iPhone in half just as it launches a new version, which is the third new model since 2007. This comes days after Palm launches it's so-called "iPhone killer," the Palm Pre. New York Times personal technology editor Sam Grobart helps us navigate the buying frenzy.

Hi there. We were trying to focus this segment on the launches of the new iPhone and the Palm Pre which happened this week rather than focusing on ALL the smartphone options out there. But you're right, we should have at least mentioned the G1 as another platform vying for critical mass status. Thanks for bringing it up.

Nothing on Google's amazing open source Android platform? You know, the ultra-cool G1? Really, nothing?

I'm disappointed.
