Sprint CEOh-Snap: Comparing Palm Pre to iPhone is "like comparing someone to Michael Jordan"

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse was put on Charlie Rose's hot seat and asked the pointed question: "Is the Palm Pre making a dent into the iPhone market?"

Hesse's response?

iPhone to Nintendo DS and Sony PSP: Handheld Gaming Wars Have Only Just Begun

It's no secret that the Apple App Store is just flooded with games and entertainment titles - 21,178 to be exact.

As impressive as that number may sound, however, there is an old saying that says quality over quantity.
