Video: Two completely different views of the Palm Pre

I recently appeared on Randall Bennett's TechVi show to talk about which smartphones to watch and who's going to be buying them. Take a look at two widely different opinions about the Palm Pre from me and CrunchGear's John Biggs.

This is the summer of the smartphone with the Palm Pre, the iPhone 3G S, and the BlackBerry Tour all taking flight. I recently appeared on Randall Bennett's TechVi to talk about which smartphones to watch and who's going to be buying them.

The most interesting part of the show is probably the big difference in opinion about the Palm Pre between me and CrunchGear's John Biggs, the other guest on this epsiode. John makes some good points about the Pre, but I think the webOS has a much better chance at succeeding and Android and Windows Mobile will likely be the smartphone platforms that come under pressure in the market.

Take a look and see what you think.
