    Tap to share is most likely infinitely more useful, but there was something called Bump on iPhone and Android.

    At the risk of being "creepy", I concur.

    If you type PreCentral on a TouchPad
    It changes to PreMenstrual
    That situation needs to be fixed!

    I don't have it. Envy is a wasted emotion. I'm secure enough.

    To understand this a little better, the difference is bump vs. tap, or the mechanism that transfer the information?

    The android use of sharing information in Gingerbread onwards?

    If I'm understanding your question correctly... The difference is that Touch to share is method of sharing information with yourself between devices you own and have paired (and also are using the same profile). In Android, Bluetooth is used in conjunction with NFC radio to provide instant connectivity between any two devices you like. The NFC radio provides the instant communications without the need for pairing and the bluetooth provides the bandwidth for the transfer of information.

    So if I ran into you in a meeting, and you said "got a contact card?" (or a file or a URL or whatever), I'd simply hold my phone next to yours and we'd transfer it across.

    The palm devices don't have NFC baked in so you don't have that level of flexibility.

    Thanks for the clarification.
    So basically the HP method is PreNess to PreNess. Is this part of the PreNess Evny that is being bandied about here? I don't evny that.

    In it's current form (unless I've radically misunderstood what palm are doing), you couldn't say to me "hey that restaurant you are looking at looks cool, fire me me the url" and then we touch phones or pad or combination and it would transfer, where as the NFC+Bluetooth model allows that to be done (obviously you still need apps).

    You guys with no PreNess keep trying to fit HP into your world. Sorry, just because you guys go one way, doesn't mean others have to go that way too.

    The PreNess Envy isn't about what the Pre doesn't have, it's about the fact that you folks with no PreNess keep coming back, trying to convince us.

    We're pretty happy with our PreNess. We tend to think you guys are really just envious.

    PreNess Envy - the reason you keep coming back for more

    Next "begged" question.
    Well if I owned a phone I couldn't stand, the last thing I would be doing would be reading up on it on a forum. Not a personal attack, I just don't get it. I have an xbox 360 but don't hang out on ps3 forums. I can understand Android owners who don't mind the Pre hanging out on these forums, but those who hate Palm, why on earth troll a forum for a product you can't stand?

    You probably picked the wrong thread then, you did read the OP, right? This was never about "tech", but more a tongue in cheek commentary on why some of you that don't own a WebOS device keep coming back.

    PreNess Envy - what do you own?
