All the features sound exciting on paper! Let's see how it pans out actually. Anyone knows when it's going to be launched in Singapore?
If only PALM had a service centre in Singapore; even a small one out of city area would suffice, definitely will boost biz. Have been palm user for the past 5 years; like functionality but hangs ever so often + battery life SOOOOO short! To top it all, talking to customer svc in another country is certainly of no help.
Wuaaoo.. an complete phone, and only 133g of weight... has wifi and 3G, cool...
good phone this phone and moto a3100 are like but something are beter in a3100
and bothare very beter than x1 and all nokia se phone
I hope their definition of coming out soon = in a month or two. Last quarter of 2009 is such a long wait.
I reckon this could topple the iPhone, only if Palm market this thing properly like Apple has been doing. Honestly, the specs are very good, it looks great, has all the features and is attractive to developers.
Pricing and marketing are the final frontier for Palm
stevo, 26 Mar 2009hi any 1 knw when the phone will be released in south africa?????Stevo - according to the distirbutors, the Pre will be launched in SA in October/November 2009
what is enhanced fixed focus??? i want AUTOFOCUS! I so wanted to buy this phone, oh well i guess i wait for pre2 or something..
here is the link for the new palm phone
if you think this phone is good then your crazy,
Wait until you see the new Palm Treo *POST*
it has a talk time of 2 weeks,
stand by time of 2 months
AND 21mpg CAMERA!!!
be aware, because PALM IS FINALLY BACK!!!!
its weird how gsm arena hasn't posted this phone yet
If it comes out in Europe for 600$ US it's definetily mine but if it's anything above that i might as well go for Touch HD does anyone have info about when it'll be realeased ?
does anyone know if its going to talk to outlook and if so is it compatible with windows 2007?
Finally long awaited I would say. I used to have a Treo but stopped using it, too bulky and the battery life was really louzy.
This one looks perfect is a "companion" phone,with pretty much everything,keyboard great idea, this was why I didn't buy an iphone.
Looking forward, anyone knows when it will be out and in Europe?
Jhon, 17 Mar 2009Let's say that one day some will make a hardware other software and you can buy any cell phone... moreI'm sorry I don't think I understand what you're trying to tell me. I'll try my best. But the last part is just a common arguments. Partially agree...there's something wrong with cellphones nowadays (when it comes to the price of cellphones)...it's not the softwares problem to me...it's more like marketing scheme...no matter how ridiculous the price is...people are willing to pay for it...their marketing strategy is good for them bad for us...
No matter what kind of softwares they have in their phones....lack of certain features or not....people will still buy it.....the first generation iPhone for example...It was overpriced and people are still lining up in front of Apple Stores and AT&T stores...software wise...not so cool back then, without copy and paste and mms functionality.
They'll make us keep on buying new phones that we think it's getting better, hahaha
...things are growing pretty fast....they're just making it slow, maximizing profit from the current release before they jump to the next release...we're just their victim...bought one, disappointed with its features.....looking for better phone(s) in next 2 years...
Oh yeah, if you still think softwares as an illusion, this might be a good example, think of a phone that comes with nothing installed (absolutely nothing, in a state where phone can't do anything and can't respond to any key because it's not programmed at all) and you pressed the power button and you see the screen getting lighted up but showing nothing...This could be a bad release to me....but this has nothing to do with palm Pre...
My rule of thumb for purchasing a phone would be....find a phone that I think I like all its features and all disadvantages it has won't affect me that much...and for the price....if I think if the phone can satisfy me with all its features and affordable....I'll go for it...
That's all I want to say....was trying to convince you software is not an illusion but part of the phone...well everyone has their own beliefs, if you believe software is an illusion, I'm fine with it...will occasionally try to convince you though, hahaha.....
EC, 25 Mar 2009Hi! Anyone knows when Pre will be launched in Singapore?normally it goes to Sprint, then other carriers, and the latest release would be the unlocked version.....should be available worldwide
Nice specs and from what i've seen from reviews this phone is gonna be a great device but...if Palm don't launch it soon other manufacturers like HTC,Samsung,LG,SE,Nokia even Toshiba (with that 1ghz monster) and etc. will beat them to the chase of customers this year especially HTC with the Android based devices witch everyone drools around.Really looking forward to this device and the review from GSMARENA.
