Android picks up an ex-WebOS guru
Google snags Palm webOS UI guru Matias Duarte to work on Android | Android Central
This is a discussion on Motorola Backflip or Palm Pre Plus? within the Motorola Backflip forums, part of the Motorola Android Phones category; Android picks up an ex-WebOS guru Google snags Palm webOS UI guru Matias Duarte to work on Android | Android Central...
One of the reasons I stuck with Palm for so long was able to upgrade to new hardware every few years while just moving all my applications and data along with me. I have twelve years of appointments, contacts, notes, tasks, and database entries on my TX. Having all that life data with me comes in handy quite often. Moving all this stuff is a pain, but it would be a big pain migrating to the new WebOS stuff anyway, and worse in two or three years migrating to the next HPalm thing.
I'm on AT&T, I don't want to get sucked into the Apple vortex, and Palm has already driven me away. What are my choices? Android is the obvious alternative, and the only Android phone on AT&T right now is the Backflip.
Maybe it's not the best phone in the world, but it's the best choice for me because its platform has a future and the future matters to me. If it's not the best choice for you, why are you even here? Just trolling?
I am here because I got the Backflip largely intending to keep it and use it to it's fulest potential. For me it just didn't work out and while I may be a bit harsh at times I try to be honest and objective. The way I moved all my stuff to webOS is the same way I got it from Palm to Motoblur. I synced with Outlook, exported to a CSV file, which I then imported to Google. With both these phones all the Google stuff automatically goes to the device.
The problems I had with the Backflip I did not think could have been mere defects that were rare, as both Backflips my wife and I had did the same things. I figured posting about my experience would be appreciated. I do not mean to step on any Backflip fans toes and if I have done so I apologize. I never meant for this thread to go tit for tat. Going back and looking at my original post, it should be very clear that I was very clear about what I personally liked and disliked about both the Backflip and the Pre.
Realizing once again that I am on a forum for fans of the Backflip, I will digress to saying that it is a great device with many capabilities, and I had alot of fun with it for the month I had it. We all have our tastes and as much as I wish success to the Palm brand, I do not wish failure upon Google or Motorola.
And if that number went up to a 1000 for the pre, how many do you think would actually recommend them?
Im pretty for sure that their number would not stay at 97%.
Only a quarter of people have bought the pre compared to the backflip.
But this thread is based on personal preference.
Your obvisously a Palm fan and are intitled to your own opinion.
But for me the Backflip works best!
They both have the same screen size (3.1 inches) and resoultion (HVGA).
but the palm pre plus has 16 million colors (24-bit)
the motorola backflip has 256,000 colors (18-bit)
is the difference clear? is the palm pre plus much, much better in display?
please give me your feedback and advice! I am deciding on which one to buy!
display is important to me. I want to use it to show pictures, etc.
I honestly did not know that there was a difference in the color depth of the displays, but I did notice quite a difference in how much richer the colors looked on the Pre. The blacks are much darker and there is more contrast on the display of the Pre. Also the accuracy of the touchscreen is apparent as well.
haha same here with winnin the backflip, glad to see you hate the iphone when its our only draw with most customers that only take what they see on tv and in every bodies hands and think they have to have it themselves.. wish we had something that competed in peoples minds..
