Howard Stern prefers the BlackBerry Bold over the Palm Pre

Not that Howard Stern is necessarily a good judge of what a good mobile phone is, but nonetheless he chose the BlackBerry Bold over the Palm Pre. Stern said that the Pre was a fine phone (it’s unclear whether he actually held it), but said its inability to connect to Lotus Notes was a dealbreaker.

Again, the world’s finest smartphone for consumers and enterprise alike wins.

    He did get to hold it. The Palm folks gave him a private demo. His previous phone was one of the previous Treo Bricks. In the 600 series I think.

    I mean come on who actually uses Lotus notes anymore. There aren’t too many corporate users who are going to diss the Pre because it can’t connect to Notes. Nobody but Howard uses Notes any more.
    Give me a break, not a good deciding factor.

    Notes ain’t perfect (and as a Notes admin I know that for sure) but it’s nice having the choice to run your mail servers on a platform that isn’t windows… (ours are clustered 8.0.2 on SLES10-x86). If only RIM would release BES on Linux…
