Palm Pre Commercial: "A revolutionary OS that can run multiple live applications at once!"
Really? That's the best WebOS/Palm Pre has to offer? Of course not. I think it's actually pretty nice and I'm a diehard Windows Mobile guy. But apparently the iPhone has set the bar so low for multitasking (as in, it doesn't) that actual multitasking is considered "revolutionary" on a mobile device. This despite the fact that Windows CE has done it forever, BlackBerry OS has done it forever, and even the old PalmOS did it in later versions.
Ahh, but well, that's because everybody is (mistakenly) competing against iPhone, even business phones. I blogged about this before. At first, I thought it was just the tech reporters, but now even Palm is gearing their advertising that way. I don't get it. RIM owns the business world, market against them, not Apple!
But what do I know? I'm just a tech guy. I'm sure the marketing pros know what they are doing.
Or maybe not.
