The Verizon Palm Pre Plus has twice the RAM as Sprint’s Pre, double the storage space, and it lacks a home key. What sort of performance improvement can Verizon customers expect with all that RAM? In this video, done by Dieter Bohn from Pre|Central, he demonstrates how on Sprint’s Pre he can only run 13 applications, while Verizon’s Pre Plus can run 50. Now that’s a bit absurd, really, since most people will never have more than 5 applications open at one time, but it shows just how impressive a little bit of RAM can make an already incredible device.
An open question: would you call the Palm Pre a success? How many have you seen in the wild? Do you know anyone who has one? Do you have one?
