So is the Palm Pre faster than the iPhone 3GS, apparently it is as Cnet put the Palm Pre up against the iPhone 3GS in 3 speed tests of which the Palm Pre wins two.
The three speed tests were boot up time, loading a web page, and snapping and sending a photo. Also included in the tests was an iPhone 3G.
The three Palm Pre, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS speed comparison tests were done in the Cnet studios in San Francisco, and reportedly the iPhone suffers from network issues in San Francisco. So to see those speed tests we have the video for you to view, which is located below.
