Palm Pre Plus vs iPhone 3GS: Need for (Browser) Speed 23

We didn't go all-out in this Palm Pre Plus vs. iPhone 3GS smackdown, instead we picked the three things that best show the differences between the platforms, to wit:

  • Browser load and rendering time
  • Loading up and playing a 3D game
  • Multitasking

The results came in pretty much exactly how you'd guess: the iPhone 3GS edges out the Palm Pre Plus on both the Browser speed test and loading up Need For Speed Undercover. The iPhone also, incidentally, blows the doors off webOS when it comes to the number and quality of available games.

But the Palm Pre Plus did some door-blowing of its own - you're able to pause the game and pick up right where you left off because of the card multitasking system.
