    Mr Crack, I am pretty sure that BGR did not have the most recent ROM...same with Engadget.
    I guess time will tell - I'll know for sure next week when I buy one - but the videos I have seen make the Hero look a lot less laggy than my current Pre.

    Are any other phone *****s, such as myself, going to but the Hero next week?

    I'm not gonna buy it, but I did get a chance to play with one today @ a sprint store. I'm in fairly well with a store manager and he pulled one out of his pocket this afternoon when I was buying a car charger. I asked to take a photo but he said NO and put it in his pocket....

    I just stopped by my local sprint store to see if they would let me reserve one since i know i have to work sunday morning. To my surprise he said they went on sale at 7pm tonight!

    So i just got home with my Hero. So far ( which is only like 15 minutes of play ) i like it. It seems to be more my flavor then my Pre, which i like my Pre.

    Clearly i haven't had time to play with it and see whats better and whats not than the Pre/WebOS, but i do get a far better cell signal on the hero, full bars in my apartment, never over 2 on my Pre.

    No i have to figure out how to delete this preset scenes/windows lol.

    I wish. I would love to have a Pre and a Hero that way when I get bored with one, I could play with the other.
    If I help you out, why not "Thank" me? Or you can visit my site at http://outklaw.com

    It's a neat phone, for sure, but nothing to incur an EFT for.

    It's pretty cool, was messing around with it today. I like the setup. I'm not a fan of the screen type, I think it's harder to click on links in webpages but the trackball makes that easier to use instead. Pretty quick too, not too much lag at all in switch back in forth and texting seems very responsive. I think if you are looking for an all touch phone then it is really slick.. I'm torn lol

    Thanks. Having never used android before there is a little learning curve compared to WebOS for me. Mostly cause of how customizable it is. So far touch screen is very responsive and accurate. Screen isn't as crispt as the Pre's imo but still very nice.

    I do miss the gestures from the Pre

    Hero is still supposed to be pretty damn slow from what I have heard. That weak and puny processor is just not good enough. I bought my phone at full retail price so I still have my upgrade available. Waiting till Android or WebOS have a 1ghz SnapDragon processor such as the one rumored in the HTC Leo. I hate WinMo but omg that thing will be packing!

    Haven't had issues with speed on the one I've been using at our store. But, may want to wait for the Samsung version coming out for Sprint, it'll have an 800mhz processor and full keyboard. That looked good as well. Lot of good things coming out, can't wait to see how well these phones improve in a year when it's my next upgrade date.

    I bought the Pre less than a month ago so that I could give the Pre a good testing but still have the 30 day return if it turned out that I didn't like it. I didn't want to get stuck with another Instinct. So I will show up on Monday/Tuesday and give the Hero a good run through and decide which one I want to go with. I really like the Pre but the phone construction is probably the main disadvantage. I want this phone to last a year or so and right now I am not sure that it will.

    It was slow initially, that was about the only complaint people had about it, but they updated it and tweaked the software here and there and now they have an extremely awesome phone. I want it.

    I am getting 2 Heros, one for my wife and one for my daughter, none for me cause i believe more in the Palm / Pre then i what i hear about the hero, it is a nive phone and it is tied with pre but pre has better and faster cpu and browser is a little better. Hero has its pros like 8000+ apps, trackball and other things, but so does the pre, and pre is not even 6months old and i want to see where palm is with pre 1 yr from now. but there are always new smartphones coming out you just cant keep up with it, i believe that the phone has to meet our needs and not the other way around
