The Palm Pre and the Samsung Moment are fairly comparable touch screen smartphones with cutting edge operating systems (the Pre uses WebOS and the Samsung Moment uses Android). Both support Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, offer a 3+ megapixel camera with LED flash, GPS, microUSB connector and music player.

While the Palm Pre offers 8GB of built-in memory, the Samsung Moment offers a memory card slot that supports 32GB but comes with a 2GB card shipped. The Moment is also larger and heavier compared to the Pre, and supports voice dialing and video recording - features that the Palm Pre does not offer.
