    I think I've discovered another part of the problem, language barrier (see the bolded text). In the words of Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    I think it means what he thinks it means.

    I mean... of course this opinion is unanimous across two continents (All of North America and Europe???) and don't forget... several coasts!

    PS: Texas is not part of North America... just a FYI!

    You know, it's entirely possible that technically, it means what he thinks it means.
    All 1 of him holds the same opinion. Across two continents and multiple coasts. As a matter of fact, everywhere he goes, all 1 of him shares the same opinion and view, and is in complete harmony and accord. Further, all one of him is in complete assent and agreement with himself.

    But, I don't really think that's how the word is typically used.

    And, here's the deal - that's my opinion.

    Here's what I really find humorous about this little tempest in a teapot. While hwoarang_do seems to have researched my previous posts, and purports to know what I think, he made this comment:

    Fact: It is. Your obsession with the device is blinding you. You want to dance around and just can't bring yourself to admit this is true...
    Yet totally ignored what I said specifically concerning "outdated" products (see the bolded parts):

    Ironically, that would be my assertion; but then the term itself has so many meanings (most of which are opinion based) that it's almost a meaningless term.

    In my opinion, just about any electronic device released today is outdated by the time it can be purchased.
    So yeah, in my opinion, the Pre is outdated, in the sense that the technology and its implementation isn't the latest greatest.

    However, in the sense that it is no longer widely usable, that's simply an opinion. It may be an opinion held by Best Buy, but it's not ... dare I say ... a unanimously held opinion, or even a universally held opinion.

    Would I personally recommend the Pre to someone today? Sure. Would I recommend it to eveyone? Not hardly, but then, there is no phone I would recommend to everyone. Everyone's needs and desires are too diverse for there to be "one phone to rule them all".

    However, my opinion of why this would be Best Buy's push remains the same - it's because they don't sell it any more.
