Palm Pre Plus vs iPhone 3Gs: review and enjoy video or dvd with them

Now that Palm Pre Plus phone has been revealed, the question everyone is asking is how it does compare to the other current top smartphones on the market? Moreover, is it worth switching to Palm Pre Plus from your current device? Now, I have narrowed down my choices to Palm Pre Plus and iPhone 3G S and I’ve had a really tough time choosing between the two:

Display
Palm Pre Plus features a 3.1-inch multitouch screen with 24-bit color. Measuring 100.5mm (H) X 59.5mm (W) X 16.95mm (D), the phone offers 320x480 pixel screen resolution.
On the other hand, iPhone 3G S comes with 3.5-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen display with also 320 x 480 pixels. The phone measures 115.5 x 62 x 12.3 mm.
Operating system
iPhone's current model runs on iPhone 3.1 OS. The phone is powered by ARM Cortex A8 processor. Among key features, the upgraded software now lets users cut, copy & paste, a sorely missed feature in the iPhone 2.0. iPhone 3.0 also offers multimedia messaging capability with the new 3.0 software allowing users to send each other photographs from the phone.
Palm Pre Plus run on Palm webOS Platform around web-based information, which is where so much of your life resides. Palm webOS helps you stay connected to all of it, so you don't miss a thing.
Battery life
Apple claims that iPhone 3G S supports up to 12 hours of talk time, 30 hours of audio, 9 hours of Wi-Fi, 10 hours on video playback, and 5 hours of 3G talk time.
According to Palm website, Pro Plus will offer talk time of up to 5.5 hours and standby time of 350 hours. But it is not released video time and audio time.
App Advantage
Apple iPhone App Store iTunes offers people over 90,000 apps. Palm apps have the ability to access and share information with each other, which means they can do more for you. Choose from apps like Facebook, Yelp, LinkedIn, Pandora, NFL SuperFan, and The New York Times. With over 1,000 available and more added each week, chances are you’ll find the ones you want.
Multimedia
Palm Pre Plus offers a 3 megapixel camera (with no auto focus and LED flash). It has build-in flash and multimedia player and supports: MPEG-4, H.263, H.264 etc video formats and MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR, QCELP, WAV, etc audio formats.
And the third-gen iPhone packs a 3 megapixel camera with video capturing, auto-focus mechanism and editing capabilities. The earlier two versions shipped with only a 2 megapixel camera each. And it also has multimedia player, but supports: MPEG-4, H.263, H.264, M4V&MP4, etc video formats and MP3, AAC, AIFF, WAV, VBR &Apple lossless, etc audio formats.
Both are good multimedia smartphone and support many video and audio formats. But, if you has a AVI file, how to play it with both two smartphone? I get answer from Google search. You may try [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/video-converter.html]Nidesoft Video Converter[/url] which could convert video or audio files between all popular formats to convert AVI file to MPEG-4 format. Detailed process is as follows:
Firstly, you could free download and install Nidesoft Video Converter from: http://www.nidesoft.com/downloads/video-converter.exe.
When you finished the download process, run the .exe file to install it.
Step 1: Click “Add File” button to import your videos from your computer.

Tips: Click a file in the list and you could use the preview control buttons to play the file.
Step 2: Click "Format" combo box to select the output format, such as to mp4 for iPhone.
Step 3: Click “Convert” button to start conversion. The conversion will be completed in a short time.
Ok, now you have converted your AVI files to MPEG-4 format files which iPhone 3GS and Palm Pro Plus supports and you may use it more convenient. Another I also find [url=http://www.nidesoft.com/dvd-ripper.html]Nidesoft DVD Ripper[/url] could rip DVD to multimedia phones’ video and music: 3GP, AVI, WMV, MP4, WMA etc. So, it is not a problem to watch your favorite DVD on mobile phone. I think these two Nidesoft software are necessary additional software for mobile phone users.
As for memory
Palm Pre Plus packs 512meg RAM, 16 gigs storage (15GB user available) and support USB mass storage.
Apple's third generation iPhone comes in two memory options, 16GB and 32GB. The phone has 256MB RAM. But iPhone 3GS doesn't have a card slot for further memory expansion, which is a sore point.
Let's talk performance. The short version is that the iPhone 3GS still renders web pages slightly faster and can load 3D games faster - but it can't multitask more than Apple's core apps. 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. If you like this version of Palm, you may get more information from Palm website.

You should use the WebOS doctor. It will do a clean reset of your phone. All of your applications that aren't homebrew will be restored when you sign in to your phone after resetting it.
If you have a Palm Pre Plus, use this link. http://palm.cdnetworks.net/rom/preplus/p145r0d09132010/ver1z0np145rod/webosdoctorp101ewwverizonwireless.jar Here are directions.
