    x2. All smartphones have influenced the market in some way shape or form. All PDA's, MP3 players, home PCs etc. have all influenced the market one way or the other. While it *REALLY* grinds my teeth when someone calls the Iphone a smartphone, and not a multimedia phone or something, the Iphone has influenced Palm in a big way, just like Palm influenced Apple in a big way.

    If you have a Pre, just forget about the iPhone... All this iPhone talk isn't helping anybody..

    I have an iphone deativated it and got a pre. I find both to be amazing phones but its odd that apple fanboys seem to think that the only way to justify their purchase is to bash all other smartphones.

    Technically I CAN'T run voice gps and make a call at the same time. My GPS Nav always freezes while on a call, and my EvDO icon disappears.

    Just curious?
    I wish I could give you an answer for this but the Dev Team is waiting for Apple to release their first update to release their jailbreak solution so Apple can't immediately patch the loophole they found. Oh Apple and your iron fist. It upsets me. I wish Apple would take Palms stance on home brew.

    My friend just asked me if I could surf the web or receive email on a call -- had to tell him the Pre can't. He said he thought it could multitask :\

    Come on, Palm!!

    I believe this is not a phone limitation but a network limitation (EVDO).

    This is a limitation of CDMA and not of the Pre. ANY phone on Sprint's CDMA network behaves this way.

    If you are on wifi however you can do both voice and data.

    Apple's successful approach to everything is to make the product dumbed down for the masses. Once the dumb-masses are hooked, you can introduce them, slowly, to smarter features over time in newer product releases and this in turn starts bringing in smarter users over to the product as well.

    When the first iPod came out, it was a piece of crap. Every MP3 player in the world was better than the iPod. But the iPod was different in that it was dumb and simple. It would take 5 generations of this product before you got gapless playback.

    When the first iPhone came out, it was a piece of crap. HSDPA had already been out but it used EDGE. Picture messaging? Nope. GPS? Forget about it. It was essentially a $500 touchscreen iPod that made phone calls. But all the hooked iPod users wanted one. Cah ching $$$$.
