The iPhone (left) can sync bookmarks with your PC via iTunes and save bookmarks on the iPhone itself in a folder hierarchy. The Palm Pre (right) also saves bookmarks in a list, as well as in an array of Web page preview icons (the iPhone has no such preview of bookmarked pages). But the Pre's boomarks cannot be managed in a folder hierarchy as they can on the iPhone. Note that the Pre displays icons for bookmarks in list view only for bookmarks included on the device; it cannot read the .ico files used to display URL thumbnails on a desktop browser. The iPhone can't use .ico files either, but Web pages can include a PNG icon that the iPhone uses as an app icon for that Web page if you save it as a Web app to the Home screen. Both devices suggest Web page addresses as you type in URLs.
