    That is a concern of mine, but I think it'll be a success either way.

    I want my DUN, though, and I want to be able to use my existing gps/mapping software on my Treo.

    So can I write non-web apps for this phone?
    How would I write an app that needs to store data in a local database?

    Don't want my splash id data to be stored on a 3rd party server.

    I couldn't find it on either site, either.

    I'm not worried about backward compatibilty. You see how quickly a new Blackberry OS emulator appeared on Windows Mobile? A software Garnet OS emulator is likely in the cards as well.

    As for price, you really think this will be more than $50 more or less than the 3G iPhone? Not a chance.

    Otherwise, this is the baddest *** device I've seen in mahy moons, and appears to fix SO many of the things that bother me about the iPhone OS.

    I'm buying this on day one. It's my reward for incessant Sprint loyalty.

    I wonder when we'll get to see some good device pictures along with OS demo?

    Thanks treocentral team for the great coverage.

    I am glad it is on Sprint. If it works out as well as it looks thypcial time for verizon would be 3 months. I dont thin a gSM of this exact form or something close to it could be that far behind if the markets judge this a winner

    The G1 is so far behind this new Pre IMO. All of these features that just make it so easy to use and to get information NOW. A hit for Palm and Sprint.

    I have been a power user for about 5 years. Treo 650-700p-755p-centro.
    I switched to WinMo Touch Diamond this past year.
    IMO, the biggest advantage to WinMo is that you can edit the registry of the OS, alllowing you to easliy customize most functions of the phone.
    I would hope the Pre is capable of this, perhaps a 3rd party app?

    Also, tethering for free is a big criteria. This is simple with Treo and WinMo.

    Did they EVER actually show the phone app for the Pre?

    If this is a big enough hit on Sprint--which wouldn't surprise me from the presentation--Verizon won't turn it down. And there's never a mention of what other carriers will get it when there's an exclusive. I'm hoping 1) Palm's already talking to other carriers (re post-exclusivity) and that they'll launch an unlocked GSM version 3 months after Sprint's is launched.

    There are plenty of PalmOS apps which are better than the alternatives on any other smartphone platform, e.g. Chattermail. Let's hope these new apps are as functional.

    One concern I have is how well this device works with the data connection turned off. Also, will it run Java apps? How good is the email client? Is it as good as Chatter?

    For those people who want to buy it at day one, why not get android or iphone? Without the backward compatibility, are you expecting a new version TOMTOM OR IGO be released so sooooon? Are you expecting all those med application be updated within three days?

    The reason this event can attract so many posts within two hours is because this device is from palm, the PALM OS CREATOR.
    Treo 750 unbranded T-mobile, HTC WIZARD 8125 T-MOBILE (broken), Treo 650 T-mobile 1.43/1.14 OS 5.4.8 Garnet (sold).
    Dell X50v, X30 624Mhz and HP ipaq h2210 h1945.

    DUN is going to be the main thing for me too. I don't know how PDAnet or USBModem can program their apps with CSS & Javascript, but I sure hope they can. It will be a no-go for me if there is not a good DUN option.

    man im sooooo MAD about the DPAD. One of the things i like doing most is playing games.. they've taken away that ability.

    GRRRRRR!

    hopefully another form factor will come out.
