    At least the old one probably doesn't crash during phone calls.

    My aunt had the cells that you'd carry in a little side bag. It's amazing how far things have come (and how much further things still have to go)

    I remember when My dad got the first VHS Video Recorder. You had to carry a VCR with you ( and were talkin g the suitcase sized VCR's) with this huge camera. He also got the first VCR when it came out. Somewhere in his basement he still has both.

    Right after college I worked as an apprentice insurance investigator and had to be sneaky carrying a huge video camera and the recorder bag. Got burned plenty of times....

    I purchased the evo on Fri. and it is a monster of a phone. yes it is hugh but watching multi media or browsing web is a great experience and wow skype video on your phone is nothing but awesome. I was watching my grandkids playing soccer and i was video chatting with my son in europe how great is that. Lets see my first love pre do that.

    Well my Evo isn't here yet, but my innocase is. So here is the Pre in the innocase. So keep in mind the Evo is smaller than the case. It comes down to what size screen you want. If you want a screen greater than 4", it is what it is. You can only make a phone that small with a screen that size. Throwing a keyboard on it would just make it way too thick. I really don't get all the big phone bashing. Pick the screen size you want and go with it. If you're happy with the Pre's screen size, great and wonderful. If you want a 4.3" screen, well here you go. Funny thing is, for every prehugger that says it's a huge brick, there's another one wishing webOS was on it. Go figure.

    *sorry, but I don't host pics anywhere so uploads are the best you get. If someone is compelled enough to host and post, go for it.

    in regards to the BB9800 and the slider form factor, That subforum on crackberry has 4 pages of threads and some threads with over 200 posts. I think there's some buzz. I think people hear just dismiss BB as do many over at Android. The players in these camps tend to be webOS, Android, iPhone, and now WP7. Don't think people around here really consider Symbian and BB as options.

    Kin? WP7 junior? Half the calories and a 1/4 the functionality but still that same high Verizon smartphone price? How's that working out for Verizon?

    Webos "cards" multitasking and the homebrew community is what keeps me with WebOS.

    Also Palm's acceptance of homebrew and openness.
  15. #115  
    It's the only two things really going for it.... If Palm didn't embrace homebrew, they'd be that much further in the dumper since they'd lose that cult tech crowd.

I wasn't planning on switching to android because I've seen many youtube videos of android running and how multitasking works and it doesn't compare to webOS. So i wanted to see if i go in person I would have the same reaction that i had with my pre a year ago. Well first of all, the hardware is amazing, a bit too huge of a screen turned me a bit off. The one thing i didn't like was android ,very user unintuitive!!!! I'm not impressed with the multitasking at all and yes it is smooth and all with the 1ghz processor but man imho webOS is years ahead. But yeah just voicing my opinion that I'm in no way changing to the evo for the main reason that it has the androidOS. I love my palm pre and very happy with it and for this awesome community thats made it awesome!!!
    I feel like people don't realize how to multi-task on android if they say its not good. I'd put it half a step behind Palm's since WebOS is more visual indicator.

    On android devices you hold down the Home button and all open apps pop up (almost Alt+Tab on a PC).

    Most used/currently open.

    Do you have use more than 6 cards on your Pre often? I can think of a handful of times i've done that and it was out of laziness of not closing things.

    3-5 is my usually number. And thats not counting the dreaded "too many cards" error when i have 1 card (or no cards!) open.
  20. #120  
    And how many apps were you actually trying to run? Out of curiosity, how often to you have more than six cards open on the Pre?
