Speed Test: iPhone 3G S vs. Palm Pre vs. iPhone 3G [Video]

CNet has done a video 'real world' speed test comparison of the iPhone 3G S versus the Palm Pre versus the iPhone 3G.

They tested the boot time, web browser speeds, and the time it takes to snap a photo.

Quite an interesting video. I won't tell you who won :)

It´s obvious AT&T´s network stinks. They were testing the HARDWARES´speed, so they should have tested it over WiFi so all three had the same conditions.

I tested both the 3GS and the Pre on Wifi. The Pre still kicks its ass by twofold! See my blog at -jon

All people learn from this pathetic test, is AT&T has very poor networks compared to europe. The tester wont even stop the test to turn on 3g on the 3gs phone to make things even! Also the iphone displays a much more detailed web page than practically every phone on the market, also the little pause on the blue progress bar at the top always happens and the page can still be used while waiting for silly little adverts that web pages have these days to load! Yet the guy asks only the girl with the pre to move the web page to show its loaded and not idiot number two with the iphone to do the same, really fair test? And back to my main point, the pre network is naturally faster than the network the iphone is on. If you got these two phones together on the O2 network in the UK, i would bet you the 3gs would whip them all, god i need a drink!!!!

Yeh and 3GS on T-Mobile would beat 3GS on O2. The best thing about that vid was the Mustang at the end!! NIce!!!!!
