The iPhone is on a completely different level from the Palm Pre in terms of popularity and sales. Still, there are a few things that I don’t like about the iPhone that the Pre does better. The most obvious is the way webOS handles notifications that let you keep working while the iPhone makes you stop and tend to the notification.
The man who designed the notification system in webOS has left Palm and landed at Apple. We can only hope that his first job will be to revamp the notification system the iPhone uses into something that works better.
