the only good thing abt dis phone is its size...
though it will b very difficult to beat the apps offered by app store!!
I wonder why Palm made this phone so limited... maybe they wanted to have full compability with the Iphone???

Since i change fones often collecting more songs and films i have 16GB card BUT things are getting out of hand..different fones means formatting old card as info on a windows fone corrupts a lot when placed in a symbian fone,,then you have to put the whole mp3s, films back on and its getting more confusing and taking ages...Since the n97 has a minimum 32GB then thats getting out of my league and laptop space is now near limit..My reason for this comment is you saying 8GB is enuf for most people and your quite right in that comment ,,having more, ie 48 GB on n97 straight away is ridiculous ,,you cannot keep full control of that amount of data on a smartfone,,a big 14inch laptop yes..
I hear on the grapevine there was a queu for this. this morning..

I have the samsung innov8 which is 10 times bet... moreIt definitely has GPS, megapixels are not the sign of camera quality, true, video recording is missing at launch but they said it will come as a software update, 8GB is enough for most people, especially for those who don't use an 8MP (phone!) camera that they don't need (see, I'd be interested how many people use the phone camera for professional purposes or to make poster-sized images).
Also, ease of use, amazingly smart system solutions Palm is known for (they're even known for adding nice touches to their WinMo phones' systems), true multi-tasking (enhancing that ease of use even more), not to mention multi-touch, full physical QWERTY keyboard etc. etc.
I believe Samsung Innov8 is a great phone but not everybody wants that kind of phone. Still neither Pre nor any other phone is the "best ever". It can only be best to an individual.
rjman, 07 Jun 2009Sorry a little new to this phone stuff. Does this phone take a SIM card so that I can use it ... moreAt this moment, there's only a CDMA version tied to Sprint, but a GSM version has been confirmed, only we don't know the exact release date as of yet.
Look at the specs, it's basicly an Iphone. Nothing new here. Get a N97, Omnia HD or Satio instead!
best phone ever on earth soon people forget iphone and start asking what is iphone? os works as smooth as butter on bred. best hardware.

I run through quite a few handsets every few years. I think I am counting some 12 over the last 9 years. I Just got a Pre on launch day saturday and I have to say this is by far the most bad ass phone I have ever owned. I have very little complaints

Its pretty well known the ipods are far from the best mp3 players out there. With their lack of format support and proprietary everything they are anything but.
Getting back to their prices being through the roof and sound quality and volume being second to a long list of competitors.
Please try to add something a little bit more useful rather then spouting nonsense simply because you have drank the apple Koolaid
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2009I have it and to be honest i love alot of its features but hate the fact that it has a terribl... moreYou have one?
Does it have the blotches across the bottom of the screen, apparently quite a few Pre's have this.
joe, 08 Jun 2009Exactly what expectations has palm set in this phone?why there is no video features
wait the next version?
What people like palm have to realize is 1/ Iphone has merged the best ever mp3 player into their product 2/ The operating system (OSX) has the DNA of fore-fathers of personal computers dating back 2 decades 3/ App Store 4/ read number 3 again 5/ did I mention App store? 6/ and of course, App store!! oh, and Itunes as an after thought.
