I looked at this phone as I was a keen Palm user in the late 90's/early 2000's. Love the webOS interface, but apparently according to Engadget Palm it has'nt got Internet/data tethering and Palm is - quote "forbidding the Pre Dev Wiki from posting any information about data tethering during the Sprint exclusivity period".
Well - I need my phone to be my mobile connection as weel. This takes this phone of my possible upgrade ocntender list.

I have had my Palm Pre for 5 days. I upgraded from a reg. flip phone with phone and beeper only. I am not a computer wizard, but I have found that the Palm Pre is very user friendly. I have been able to use email, surf the web, use the contact list, use the gps and map options very easily.
I would recomend it to almost any age group with or with a lot of experience with new tech.

Im really into this phone the only thing for me that is a slight upset is the fact that there is no dedicated camera button and no expandable memory. but i personally love the keyboard and im a big handed gentlemen and the touch screen works flawlessly. I would like to browse the web and take a call but i believe thats a CDMA issue and not a phone flaw. This phone is the closet thing to perfect in my opinion. im definately looking forward to more from palm in the comming years now.
