    Hi all. Would you consider the Treo and Centro the Palm equivalents of a first generation iPhone and first gen Android smartphone?

    Thanks

    Rick - I totally agree. The first iPhones couldn't copy, cut &/or paste let alone the fact it took years before you could edit a Word document let alone an Excel document which I was doing on Palm in 1998!

    The first iPhone was nothing more than a feature phone slab. The mere fact that you could add software from 3rd parties, add launchers, icon sets, browse file systems, and use expandable memory makes Palm far more powerful than the first iPhone. To this day, iPhones still can't do that. iPhones continue to be super expensive feature phones.
