Multi-touch mobile phone wars : round 2

June 7th, 2009 | Tags: , , ,

  • Round 1: iPhone 2G (3G) vs BlackBerry Storm
  • Round 2: iPhone 3G (3.0) vs Palm Pre

So tomorrow kicks off yet another battle of the smartphones where Apple announces it’s latest goodies at WWDC at Moscone West in San Francisco, just days after Palm re-invents itself for the third (and probably final time) with the Pre. I have always been of the opinion “horses for courses”, for me what works in the enterprise does not fit the bill at home (this is not just a technology issue, but convenience too – do I really want my work number/e-mail whilst I am running after my kids on the weekend?)

For those interested coverage starts here on Engadget at:

07:00AM – Hawaii
10:00AM – Pacific
11:00AM – Mountain
12:00PM – Central
01:00PM – Eastern
06:00PM – London
07:00PM – Paris
02:00AM – Tokyo (June 9th)

Personally I am looking forward to taking delivery of my Asus 1000HE and putting Windows 7 on it!
