    I agree, everything they announced had already been leaked.......I rate it up there with the "big unannounced" feature Palm was going to release, and it ended up being "it will sync with iTunes." I thought for sure there would be something bigger from apple. Good stuff for them, but nothing to make me want to return my Pre!

    I'm at 66 percent. I bought a car charger fearing the worst, but haven't needed it yet.

    I used it at the beach yesterday, and made it from 9am to 3:30pm. Terrible and totally ruins the device for me.

    I agree. Sprint claims to be all about putting customers first now, since they have a drop in users with their service. I think Palm needs to be communicating with the press and users weekly, letting them know what they are planning to do.

    Definitely.

    iPhone 3GS = video recording, longer battery life, 7.2mb HSPDA, 8GB/16GB/32GB. Oh and $99 for the 8GB model. Also available 16GB and 32GB models.

    The new Iphone features were very yawn inducing. Absolutely nothing there to make me regret buying the Pre, other than the pricing on the 16 gb model. I wish Palm had 16 gb at the $199 price...

    That's better than what my iphone 3G gives me

    Battery life isn't a huge issue..reception is with me. That's impacting it where i'm at and the reception shouldn't be an issue. Wasn't with past palms on sprint.

    It's a really boring textbook type thing, they sell about 1000 copies maximum - the "profits" work out less than working for minimum wage.

    The 8GB for $99 is for the 3G not the 3Gs....

    I know this isn't of much interest to US consumers but Palm has to be worried about this locking down potential customers in GSM countries.

    The cheap iphone and 3gs will be out for a while before the GSM palm (and oddly here in the UK, looks like they will be on the same network).

    My wife was at the beach with me. She has an iPhone 3G. Her battery was still going way strong when we left.

    Still can get OS 3.0 on the 8GB iPhone 3G. 3GS is only on the 16gb and 32 models. Where is Palm Pre's 16GB adn 32GB models?

    "So far they haven't announced extension of the weekday alarms to include Saturday and Sunday either."

    Hilarious. This 'feature' has really helped me be more productive on the weekends.

    The big deal is the speed of the iphone 3gs. And that 7.2 hspda. Video recording is just a minor thing.

    yeah a $99 iPhone 3G is a nice price, but if you REALLY liked the Instinct (JUST AN EXAMPLE!!) and Sprint announced the new Instinct, and lowered the price of the old version at the same time, people are naturally going to want the new phone regardless of the price of the old one

    After 8 hours away from the charger, 7 hours of standby/sleep mode, my Pre is down to 30% battery life. That's pretty pathetic.
