I dunno, it looks very cool, but will I be able to trust my data to it? Without a card slot and access to Palm apps it won't be the Palm that I love. I just replaced my TX with another (digitizer prob) and, thanks to Resco Backup and the card slot, the new Palm was up and running identical to its predecessor (minus digitizer prob) in 15 minutes, complete with 4 Gb of music. I wonder how the Pre would compare in such a scenario.

I've always needed to believe that, if my Palm were stolen or trashed, I could replace it all from what is on my desktop. I use Backupbuddy and that keeps a copy of the inserted memory card on the desktop, so if I lose my TX I can create a replacement memory card and restore that to a new TX. This has always worked better for me than restoring from Hotsync data, which ignores the card. Let's hope that with the Pre they haven't lost sight of the fundamentals in pursuing the iPhone crowd. Do we know how much memory it has?

Now it has eggs. Nice.

I'm not sure everyone is grasping the full reach of this.

In Spanish, huevos means eggs, sure. But metaphorically it is commonly used to mean, well, the same thing that balls means in English.

So "how do you like my new Palm Balls?", "you can't synch Google calendars like me because you don't have Balls", etc...

I must admit I love the Pre...but I will miss some things from the 755P. I wish the Pre would have kept the D-pad. On the iPod touch when I'm going through the pages, I sometimes get tired of flicking my way through long post while on the 755P d-pad, I just hold down to keep on scrolling. One lil minor annoyance but I'll adjust, another thing I wish it had was the soft paint. That Pebble is just one fingerprint magnet. I'll get the Pre when it comes out but if sometime down the road Palm releases a newer edition of the pre with softpaint, I'll jump in that bandwagon again.

I was so high on Pre love that I completely forgot this was a phone. PIC brought up a good though, when your multi-tasking, how will you hang up when your not in the phone app? I think they need to add 2 new buttons to the Pre. I think that the best way though will probably just add a phone icon in the notification bar that will bring up the end button to disconnect the call.

TO this day I always do a double-take on THAT also... that's why I type out PalmOS instead of POS... lol

This phone will just be another drop in the bucket. Maybe a bigger one then the average phone but nothing overly spectacular none the less. Without support for the things that made palm's great, like apps and a memory slot, this phone will not save them. Unless your just a brand w**** and in that case you should just buy an iPhone.

I'm going to wait and see what the next one is going to look like in terms of specs before I say palm is a contender again. Also backwards compatibility is a must, PERIOD.

The apps are what made these devices so great (especially the ones from just regular Joe's.).

I don't even want a phone and am miffed there are no options (yet) just to have the PDA with other means of connectivity (wifi, bluetooth, maybe WWAN).

I want a UX50 phone. No need to adjust much. Just add a bluetooth headset.

To jog everyone's memory, the FIRST Palm devices did NOT have memory slots. THAT came later. Neither the original Palm Pilot 1000, 5000, Palm Personal nor Palm Professional had memory slots. I had to load several chapters of a book at a time instead of entire libraries like I do now and it cost me $150 to upgrade my Palm Personal with 512K of memory to 2MB of memory by having a MB change done. This feature only came after the Palm Vx. (Palm M125)

http://www.geocities.com/netbrakr/

I maintain that it's innovation and being in the right place at the right time that made Palm great, not necessarily memory slots or apps. Palms ease-of-use was far more beneficial to their success than the sheer number of apps that were available, many of which were crap. Many of the things we have taken for granted in later Palm devices did not become standard fare until AFTER palm's acquisition of Handspring. (Remember THEM?)

Y'all are welcome to disagree, but MOST users of PDA's historically (or smartphones for that matter) have tended NOT to be the power users that are represented by people on these boards. You people are all special, but you are NOT (and have never been) Palm's target market. Many of the features we power users want are either fluff or are wasted on the average user.

Well, I for one am hoping for a CD-ROM with my soon to be new Pre that will, at the VERY LEAST include an address book / .pdb to Google migration tool.

Looking forward to getting my grubby mits on one the DAY it comes out.

Should be interesting to compare and contrast between my Pre, and the guys at church (Bro-in-law with the G1, as well as the BB Storm, and iPhone represented in the group).

I already use a tool like this, but it looks at Outlook Exchange on my desktop and copies my calendar to Google:

http://www.google.com/support/calen...py?answer=98565

It works very well.

Off course, this assumes that the pre syncs wirelessly with your exchange server. I believe this also works with Yahoo or any other calendar...
