You're comparing apples with oranges. The Palm Pre already has a
complete PIM etc. as well as a suite of other finished apps right out
of the box, and is intended specifically for consumers, not
developers. Therefore, it will sell and is useful right out of the
box. That is in sharp contrast to a device that needs to have a stable
SDK well before its release in order to generate hype with the
developers who will be buying it.
