- "June 29, 2009, is the two-year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone. Not one of those people will still be using an iPhone a month later. Think about it -- if you bought the first iPhone, you bought it because you wanted the coolest product on the market. Your two-year contract has just expired. Look around. Tell me what they're going to buy."
- "The Pre going to be a million times -- well, not a million times -- several times faster than the iPhone."
- "The Pre is going to run rings around [Apple] on the Web."
The new ad reads, in full:
Pitting both the original iPhone and Palm Pre head-to-head on a spec-by-spec basis is a bit unfair, as that original iPhone is two years old now. The iPhone 3GS is a much more formidable piece of hardware, and has lots of features that the Palm Pre doesn't (video capture, compass, etc.).
The Palm Pre does things the iPhone can't. Run multiple applications at the same time with real-time updates and even save $1200 over two years. It's the perfect time to join the Now Network, America's most trusted 3G network, bringing you the first and only 4G network from a national carrier.
Sprint is sure to point out that its plans will allow users to save some money each month, depending on how they configure their services.
Is the Pre good enough to convince original iPhone adopters to switch? Well, those iPhone owners have had two full years to evaluate AT&T's network service, so if they stick with AT&T and get a new iPhone 3GS, they're betting on the devil they know.
Moving to the Pre and Sprint would require them to change up everything. Many people left their carriers for the iPhone. Are they doing the same for the Pre?
