    I'm gonna try and keep this post generally rant free (if you're deeply interested, just pm me), so bear with me if this seems a bit disjointed.

    Essentially, Palm's teased developers since back in the Early Access Program, back in May, of the idea of developer device. They even announced a $100 discount program for developers. They never followed up on it since the announcement and every so often the answer that kept coming back to me was "soon".

    Well, I've found out I shouldn't be expecting developer devices anytime in the near future. Emulator simply isn't enough. My only viable option (for various reasons), other than just switching to android, is getting a purely testing Pre now, and then a second Pre later when one comes available on-warranty with the ability to use it as a phone. I'm perfectly willing to pay full price for the one I use as a phone, but I wasn't expecting to have to buy a second one in the meantime.


    So I'm asking for help from you guys here at PreCentral.

    I haven't decided which version of Pre to pick up (any should really work), d I have no idea where I should get a Pre from, so I'd love everyone's input.


    So with that in mind, here the donation link:


    All donations towards this particular fund are listed below (unless asked otherwise). All donations are very much appreciated.

    [removed]


    Feel free to use this link to tweet the ppl at Palm about my situation. If Palm ends up changing their mind and starts selling developer devices, or the Pre comes to Telus before enough money for a testing Pre has been gathered, I'll refund the donors and just pick that up.


    EDIT: Special thanks to 2sslow for hooking me up with a Pre. I've removed the donate link and will be returning all donations Thanks to everyone who helped out though, it's great to see how giving the webos community is

    I just donated again. You will like this one.

    100,000+ of us got our start with Homebrew Apps, etc. primarily because of Jason.

    If we each donate $10, he is a millionaire.

    Jason deserves it.

    Don't return my donation. It is a small down payment for what I have received.

    Tim and I are refusing the return of our donations.

    We're requiring Jason to buy a touchstone, and put a little sticker on it saying "Donated by Australia" so he is reminded every day of just how great Australians are

    lol, yea, that link was specific to this li'l funding thing. I have a general all-purpose donation link in my signature where proceeds go towards future software development. Though as always, donations are completely optional and volunary.

    I agree completely...and have donated a while back. It's incredible that he offers his work for free....same with the Preware guys.
