    I'm not sure which of the two routes are logical.

    If they make it backwards compatible, and stability issues arise, people will be complaining.

    Also, Palm would have to spend time working with the OS to keep it stable with all the old 3rd party apps.

    I know they need to start pulling in revenue now, and making it backward compatible would help in that effort.

    But, if they devoted their time to improving on this OS, and developing apps for it, it may be a safer move.

    Sprint might take a page out of the evil blue when it comes to data pricing...but quite honestly, in their current financial state, would you blame them?

    As long as they don't make you pay for "Palm Pre Data Plan" like AT&T does Iphoney owners, I'm good. Just because I bought a cadillac doesn't mean I should have to pump it with premium...

    Duh. When the venture capitalists stepped up with ANOTHER $100 million after sinking $300 mil into flailing Palm, I knew that they must have seen today's presentation first! Who would dump another $100m in this economy into Palm without being blown away by the new device?

    Hats off to Palm, that's for sure.

    Wow! Is it me or did this look like Palm created a whole new company full of brand new brilliant developers?

    I am wondering about the price too . It seems that the Pre is Sprint's competitive answer to Verizon's Storm & AT&T's iPhone exclusives. If this is true, logic dictates that it has to be priced competitively with those phones which are $199 with two year contract. My guess is it will be priced between $199 - $299. I also think that even $299 might be too much of a difference in price to overcome the iPhone's Kool-Ade brainwashing hype commercials. So I would expect it to be closer to $199.

    Oh, I know. I should stop complaining. ;-) Now, back to the topic @hand. Or @Palm, as it were!

    Check it:

    With Microsoft’s rather anemic keynote at CES 2009, the show was up in the air for another company to step up to the plate and garner all the attention from the press. Thus, Palm was in a perfect position to steal the show and after following the various live feeds . . . I would have to say that Palm did just that.
    (emphasis added)

    Congratulations Palm! You needed to hit a homerun today to stay relevant in the mobile space and I would have to say you did just that. I can’t wait to get my hands on a Pre and am now really disappointed I was unable to make the trip to CES.
    SCORE!

    Anything over 250 is failure imo. The price has to be 199 if they want people to switch carriers. 250 leaves them thinking and 299 won't even turn their heads.

    TreoCentral liveblog coverage was 10 times better than gizmodo's - theirs was lame and didn't have half the content dieter was able to cover. Mad props my boy!

    When I just clicked on their "Phones" link it brought up the Pre, Treo Pro, and Centro.

    All the Pre info now is up and working.

    .....and there is no mention of a mini/micro SD card expansion slot.
