    And yet the Pre browser performs 10 times better than the POS browser on the Torch, even with that 100 score on the acid test.

    Coincidently I just tried out a Torch at the local AT&T store. It was right next to the Pre Plus. The Pre's performance felt light years ahead of the Torch. The Pre ran smooth and the Torch felt clunky and large.

    Wonder if HP would have come knocking on the door after you gave it to PreCentral as a goodwill gesture to the community!

    But I sure hope you are right!
    I have both, a torch from the company for email and corporate Intranet use, and a Pre for personal use. I think most of you will agree with me on this. When somebody is as intimate with the Palm devices as most of the PreCentral user base is, there's NO WAY he could confuse a Torch with a newer, larger Palm Pre device!

    Was the keyboard vertical or horizontal? Did it have a home button like the Sprint Pre's? Did he take out the phone from the top of the pouch or side of the pouch?

    Iím sorry you are seeing pre's now. Itís a terrible disease and it affects the best of us. It afflicts many of us with a yearning for another palm device. It starts with the onset of idling on the Future Palm Devices forum. Some other side effects may be re-reading old news in hopes that you missed a unbelievable part of the article that will change your hole perspective. My thoughts are with you.

    Best of luck to many of us that have come down with this hardship.

    Just seems hokey.
    So basically you're asking if we think it's weird that someone that should be in Santa Clara County went to Los Angeles County?

    Kinda.

    I was being kind of tongue-in-cheek about the whole "I hope its not a Torch" comment and I truly want a new Webos phone spotting in the wild.

    I may not be the brightest and my 40 year old eyes the best but I cannot figure out how people don't think the Pre and the Torch have a similar look. As I said there is a guy here in my office that has one and I took some pics. Forgive the quality of the pics as the only camera I had in the office other than on the Torch or Pre was on my old 755p.

    The first two pics are side by side close ups and you can see that the Torch does have silver around the edges. The last two pics are from about five feet away and the Torch looks a lot to me like a big Pre.

    Yes the Pre and Torch look alike but it is irrelevant to what the OP saw. The Torch and Pre are around the same size and the OP saw a bigger Pre. So there is now way it was a Torch.

    I agree with you completely. I was just commenting that people had posted that they looked nothing alike and the Torch is slightly bigger.

    Not really, more like asking don't you think it's weird that someone in charge of such a trade secret (and a female to boot) was caught flaunting a secret new Palm device in public (while being a male), in L.A.

    The situation you described is no more strange than someone leaving a very secret prototype in a bar...

    It's much bigger. A guy at my car club has one. Didn't quite fit my hands, but as the guy put it, "it doesn't fit my puny Asian hands".

    But yeah next time if you see the guy, go ahead and "aggressively invite" him to show you the phone.
