    Yeah, we have a lot of links, but I figure it's important that RSS users know that there is new content rather than just update articles.

    Check out the video, yo!

    Thanks for that hands-on video Dieter! That's the 2nd time today I've seen someone in a hands-on ask Palm about flash and YouTube. Over at Gizmodo, the Palm rep clicked on YouTube and clicked on a video but an error popped up, so it wouldn't play it. I was wondering why the Palm rep you were talking to mentioned that he didn't know what might happen if you had a lot of YouTube videos playing in different windows/cards. (or something like that?) And then right after that, they said that flash wasn't supported "yet". Hopefully it will be!

    I just caught something. All apps being signed, going through their app store for quality control? Interesting.

    Unless they're doing it the way J2ME apps work on many phones, where you're prompted that unsigned apps won't be supported, and any damage they cause won't be covered, but you're still good to go...

    Nice Video! Too bad you didnt/couldnt open the battery compartment to peak at the battery size and see if any microSD slots were hiding back there!

    All apps need to be signed....geesh! How long will that process take? I guess that eliminates most 3rd party software that circumvents Sprint's own stuff (bye bye PDANet, TomTom)!

    If it's not like Sprint's J2ME phones, where unsigned apps throw a message saying that Sprint's not responsible for any damage, but are still allowed to install, then this will suck. So much for it being open, so long Palm, hello WinMo. (The irony of going to WinMo for an open phone is not lost on me at all. ) I don't like jailbreaking.

    If it is, then oh well, it just means that that's what comes through the app store, and I'll have to click through an alert to install third-party unapproved stuff.

    i love the rounded riverstone shape. kinda makes me think of a bar of soap - smooth & made to fit in your hand. the curved shape when open is a nice elegant touch. one thing i liked about my treo 300 was how it curved around my head & put the mic closer to my voice.

    I haven't touch a palm device since my Treo 650, and I must say, it looks like I will be back. This device is absolutely amazing. Hope to get my hands on it the day it arrives.

    great video. it gives me a good idea about the gadget. i can imagine acquiring such a device for my collection but for that i will have to wait a bit in germany i guess.

    very iphonish: great touch navigation, locked, no flash yet,
    with treo properties: take-outable battery, keypad, ringer switch etc
    and a completely new os concept: web

    exciting

    WHy no question on backward compatibility? (or will it be taken care of by a 3rd party developer?)
    Now it's the WAITING GAME: a GSM Palm Pre
    T680 (COPPER) + Cingular = FUN!!
    My T650 & 6230b and NX70 are retired... =(

    It has been established that it will not be provided, but "it could be possible with 3rd party work."

    I just hope Sprint doesn't force some mandatory service plan on this phone. I have a dirt cheap 3rd party plan that i am not giving up for anything. I'd gladly pay full price (and maybe take Hesse out for a drink) if need be...

    Thanks Dieter for the coverage! The video was very informative and I can't wait until we get a GSM version. For now I can read about it and keep hope alive that before the fall we will have either an unlocked version or one on ATT. IMHO Palm is back in the game folks....

    Not crazy about the comment regarding needing to have apps signed, but I'll take a wait and see attitude on that until we hear more details.

    The device looks very nice, and I think I like that it has a keyboard, though the screen is smaller (as compared to an iPhone) as a result, so video playback won't be as impressive and touch usability may be hampered.

    I'm currently in the process of updating my development skills with the .NET tools, so it's a shame that while I like .NET for developing, the WM experience doesn't really excite me. Hopefully the next version of WM will be sooner rather than later and will be a significant overhaul of the user experience. I was probably going to go with a WM Treo Pro on Sprint (love my SERO plan), so that I could play around with .NET, but this device is calling me.

    So Dieter, you didn't ask about release date or price? I imagine they wouldn't have told you anything more than they already said, so it probably doesn't matter. They seemed to indicate release "soon" but the official word of "1st half of 2009" doesn't line up with that. If it was really "soon" they would have said "1st quarter". So I suspect we still have several months to wait.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    The cards really remind me of the Xperia. And they are LIVE?! MAN! This phone looks so damn good. I like the "flick" of your finger in order to go back.

    yeah, it would be nice to have an iphone-sized screen for video, but keep in mind that since there is no virtual kb taking up screen space, things like email & sms (anything requiring text input) on the pre will have the entire screen available. that part, i like.
