역시 사람들은 아이폰에 대한 기대를 한껏 가지고 있는 눈치입니다.

Palm Pre는 언론의 대대적인 홍보(?)에도 불구하고,

그다지 일반 사용자들의 적극적인 호응을 이끌어내지 못하고 있습니다. 

2일 뒤 있을 iPhone의 발매 때문이라는 것이 서베이에서 이유로 지목되었다고 합니다. 흠..

신형 아이폰에 대해 실망하면 Palm Pre로???

모르겠네요. 전 오히려 Palm Pre에 대한 Sprint 의 홍보 전략이 부족했던 게 아닌가 하는 생각도..

Palm Pre fans line up in early hours to be first with the new smartphone

Many stores sell out although stock was expected to be low

By Matt Hamblen

June 6, 2009 01:26 PM ET



Computerworld - The nationwide launch of the Palm Pre on Saturday was more like a soft launch compared to the crowds that lined up to buy new iPhones. But Palm enthusiasts nonetheless gathered outside Sprint Nextel Inc. stores and other retailers in the hopes of being among the first with the highly anticipated smartphones.

For many buyers, the purchase of a Pre with its new WebOS, was a good investment in an exciting new smartphone, but also a way to support ailing Palm Inc. and even wireless carrier Sprint.

"As an original Palm Pilot user, I want to support Palm and see them make it, but this Pre is also just a bloody cool device," said Skip Tannen of Upton, Mass. He said he liked the way it felt in his hands, and was especially impressed with the QWERTY keyboard, instead of the touchsreen on the iPhone, which he also uses.

Tannen, an IT operations engineer at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass., waved his arms in victory holding his newly purchased Pre high as he left a Sprint store in Framingham, Mass, about 20 miles west of Boston. He was the first in line at 8 a.m. when the store opened, having left his home three hours earlier.

A Sprint spokesman characterized the launch in East Coast cities as "a nice flow of customers," with some stores attracting crowds of 40 to 50 people waiting to get in at 8 a.m. when many stores opened.

"Our service reps have been able to spend time with customers to set up the new Palm Pre and make sure they know how to ... use the features," said spokesman Mark Elliott.

Sprint sells the device for $200 after a $100 mail-in rebate, plus a two-year service agreement. Elliott, who was stationed at a store in lower Manhattan, said that by 11 a.m., there had been a steady line of customers at several East Coast stores he'd heard from.

In downtown Boston, there was still a line of about 15 people outside the Sprint store two hours after it had opened. According to Boston.com, the store sold out of its 55 Pres by 11 a.m. At at a Framingham Best Buy, where the $100 rebate is automatic, a store manager was waiting outside before the official opening to give Pre buyers a ticket to come back for activation at 10 a.m. He said most Best Buys only had three or four of the devices, and characterized the first day of sales as a "soft launch." At 9 a.m., he still had tickets available for two Pres.

Introducing Palm® Pre™, a phone so in sync with your life it feels like it’s thinking ahead for you. Pre pulls your different online calendars into one view, bringing you the information you want without having to search for it. Pre links your contacts from different sources, giving you one place to find what you need. And Pre delivers incoming messages1 and notifications in an intuitively subtle way, letting you react or respond however you want. People, events, information that matters. With Palm Pre, it'll come to you.

The Palm® Pre™ phone will be available on the Sprint network.

Prepare
 

·  Tools required: Small Phillips Screw Driver, Small Flathead, Pliers, solder iron, exacto razor & Safe Open Tool

·  Repair Toolkit available HERE

Gather all neccesary tools and place your Palm Pre Phone on a clean flat surface, use a soft cloth or towel to place under it.

 

Contents

What a nice looking phone! Manual, earbuds (not Apple), Pouch, USB Cable, and Charger.

You want to be sure to only use the OEM charger otherwise you will fry the phone.

The box has a slick design, reminding me of the 1st iPhone we opened.

 

 

1st Phone view!

Check out the back of the phone, small and sleek.

 

 

Step 1

To get started, push the tab on the bottom of the phone to remove the back panel. This should be pretty easy to do since the battery is user replaceable.

Total of six screws must be removed at this point.

Step 2

Remove the battery so we can expose the 2 clips on the side of the back panel bezel. You can use the razor blade or small flathead to push the clips out. These 2 clips are on the outer edge of the phone.

The tabs secure the top of the keyboard bezel.

Step 3

To remove the keyboard bezel you must use a nylon safe open case tool and spudge all the way around until the bezel pops up. This will remove the back panel partially.

Step 4

Before you pry the back panel bezel all the way off, you must 1st disconnect the communications board cable pictured.

Step 5

Now we can see the entire front panel with components revealed.

Step 6

Lets step back to the front bezel and remove the antennae wires to expose the comm board. This board houses chips for GPS, wireless, etc.

Remove the small metal plate with the razor (pictured) so you can unplug the antennae.

Step 7

We want to focus on removal of the front bezel slide with keyboard. There are 2 clips (bottom corners) to start removal of the keyboard.

Remove the one visible screw, then slide the keyboard in and out to reveal 2 more hidden screws. One hidden screw is located under the ribbon which connects the comm board to the system board.

Remove the two larger board clips at this point. (camera board and comm board clips)

Step 8

We can see the front panel internals now. There are 3 small flip clips to remove. Clips used for: Digitizer, ear piece speaker and mic/LED panel.

Remove the grey tape to expose the actual clip to the LCD.

After the clips are removed, remove the board to expose the Palm Pre LCD screen.

 

Step 9

Now that the system board is removed, we can concentrate on removal of the heat shield. Use a pair of needle nose pliers along with a heat gun or solder iron to get started.

This step is very difficult, dont try it unless you need to identify the chips.

Chips seen here:

Texas Instruments CPU TWL5030B/ 94A20PW C

Elpida K2132C1PB-60-F/ 09100N024

Samsung 910 KMCMG0000M-B998, 8GB NAND memory for storage is suspected.

 

 

 

Step 10

After removal of the board from step 8 we can clearly see the LCD/digitizer combo.

The LCD and capacitive touchscreen are permanently glued together. This means if either goes bad or is damaged, both must be replaced

Currently we have not found a way to separate the LCD from the digitizer. Looks like people will be paying for both parts if one should fail.

Completed!

Look at all the glorious parts and modules. Reverse this guide to put it back together, good luck.

Palm Pre의 박스가 트레오 프로랑 같은 것으로 나오나요?

유튜브에서 돌고 있는 영상인데,

제 생각에는 Boxing이 정해지기 전에 일단 예전 박스에 넣어 나왔던 게 아닐까 합니다.

트레오 프로랑 같은 package를 고집할 이유가 별로 없거든요.

Palm Pre의 혁신성이나 시장에서의 기대감을 생각할 때 말이죠.

애플을 이기지는 못하고 있군요.

Giggs를 제외한 일반인들에게 애플의 아이폰은 여전히 매력적인 신제품입니다.

Giggs들은 곧 나올 것이라 예측되는 신형 아이폰을 손꼽아 기다리면서

이전 제품에 대한 불만과 애정을 동시에 쏟아냅니다.


하지만 일반인들, 특히 아이폰을 약정 맺어서 2년 유지하는 이들에게는

지금의 아이폰도 훌륭하고 만족스런 제품이죠.

물론 배터리에 대한 불만은 있지만,

배터리 때문에 안 쓸 정도의 불만은 절대 아니네요.

많은 경쟁사들이 지난 2년 간 아이폰을 이겨 보겠다고 무수히 많은 제품을 내었고,

나올 때마다 신문과 언론들은 아이폰을 이길 수 있을 것 같다고 말했습니다.


하지만 2년이 지나도록 그런 폰과 그런 회사는 보이지 않고 있군요.

올해 하반기가 되어서야 Palm Pre, 신규 안드로이드폰 들이 제대로 경쟁을 하겠죠.

물론.. 아이폰 신형은 그들을 느긋하게 기다리고 있을 겁니다.


신규 칩을 통해서 소비 전력을 줄이고,

그래픽 칩을 개선해서 real 3D game을 위한 노력을 보여 주겠죠.

그리고 OLED를 통해서 야외 시인성, NTSC 등도 더욱 향상 시킬 겁니다.

음성 컨트롤도 지원되고,

게다가 더 많은 컨텐츠도 AppStore를 통해서 선보이겠죠.



내년, 그리고 내후년에도 J.D Power and Associates 의 결과는 다르지 않을 것 같단

생각은 저만의 기우일까요?

하지만 전 그럴 것이라고 확신합니다.. 흠..


p.s 삼성은 이제 LG에게 밀리는 형국입니다.
      기능, 디자인, 사업자 요구 사항 충족 등에서 LG보다 확실히 뒤지고 있군요.
      좀 더 분발하길@@!!!

Apple outdistanced the competition in consumer smartphone customer satisfaction ratings from J.D. Power.

Apple's iPhone has won another J.D Power award for customer satisfaction among consumers, after taking the business crown last year.

J.D. Power and Associates released the results of a customer satisfaction study measuring consumer tastes on Thursday, and ranked the iPhone highest among smartphone consumers judging five factors: ease of operation, operating system, features, physical design, and battery function. Apple scored particularly well in everything but battery life, which appears to be a sore spot for iPhone owners.

The iPhone received an overall score of 791 on a 1,000-point scale, ahead of LG's 772 points and Samsung's 759 points. The industry average was 751 points, and overall smartphone satisfaction rose since J.D. Power's last survey in November 2008, it said.

Apple won a similar award from J.D. Power last year for business smartphone customer satisfaction.
